You may have heard me mention getting 6P dice manufactured and sold on the site at some point, and in January I actually did get a batch produced for a promotion I wanted to run during Regionals, but the timing didn’t work out and I’ve been sitting on the dice ever since.
However, with States/Provincials/Territories in sight this coming weekend, I’m ready to roll them out…
Instead of simply selling the dice, I thought it would be more exciting to make a way that you could win them. Yu-Gi-Oh style.
Our Underground writers will be packing these dice at States, and they’ll be playing for keeps. If you get matched up against one of our UG writers during the tournament and beat them (either in Swiss or Knock them Out of top cut), you win a dice. Each writer only has a total of 4 dice to defend, meaning supplies are very limited. (No pressure or anything, guys!)
Here is a listing all our participants in the promotion and which States they’ll be attending:
- Andrew Wamboldt: Missouri, Kansas
- Andy Hahn: Missouri
- Colin Moll: Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas
- Dylan Lefavour: Connecticut, New Hampshire/Maine, Massachusetts
- Erik Nance: North Carolina, South Carolina
- Esa Juntunen: Finland Regionals
- Jay Hornung: Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa
- John Kettler: Texas
- Kenny Wisdom: Washington, Oregon, British Columbia
- Mark Hanson: British Columbia
- Michael Diaz: New York, New Jersey
- Ray Cipoletti: Connecticut, New Hampshire/Maine, Massachusetts
- Zach Bivens: North Carolina, Maryland, South Carolina
And I will be going to Pennsylvania States and playing, provided someone out there can lend me a deck for the day.
As mentioned, each writer only has a limited amount of dice, and once the dice are gone, they’re gone. So by the third weekend, I do not expect many – if any – to be left. Do not snooze the first weekend!
In addition to winning the dice through chalking one up in the win column versus our writers during the tournament, you may also do a challenge match against them either if the tournament is over and they’re up for it, or if they are judging rather than playing the event. (I know Ray will most likely be judging Connecticut.) This way Juniors and Seniors will have a chance to win dice too.
Also, I’ve decided that I will likely never be selling dice on the website, as I had a pretty traumatic two day experience at the post office trying to mail these out, so they will be somewhat of a collector’s item.
P.S. I recently launched the new version of PkmnCards after a long month of intensive coding. Check it out, bookmark it (if bookmarking is still a thing), and let me know what you think:
