Post Acquiring Game Science Dice
For the last few months I've been wanting to get my hands on more Game Science dice--particularly some Zocchi dice for my recently acquired copy of DCC RPG. I hadn't purchased dice in a few years, and I've been surprised to learn that it now seems impossible to get ahold of any game science products.

They're still operating, but none of the half dozens stores I've visited carry any game science products, and even their online store now redirects to another online store which seems to be out of stock on everything.

Anybody know of a good place to actually buy the damned things? And, while we're at it, anybody have any advice for painting them?

It seems like these guys have a lot more in stock than anywhere else I've checked, thanks!

Though they're still out of stock of about half their Game Science products. I'm not normally one to question someone else's business strategy, but I do wonder how a company can make any money if their products are never available to be purchased.

First, I'm a bit spoiled...I go to their booth at GenCon....:)

Second, over on the Goodman Games forums, there's a thread about the dice for DCC and some good tips, IIRC, about inking the Game Science dice...wait...let me dig it up...here it is..

I was at diecon last weekend (june 22 2012) and saw some hucksters with packs of GS dice for sale, so check conventions, or on line game stores.

I'm going to be at Paizocon, but I don't know if GameScience will be making an appearance there.

Thanks for the link, though. That thread looks like it has a lot of helpful information!

Guy, it wasn't a gamescience table selling them, it was a regular huckster.

I see; I hadn't considered that! Maybe I'll have some luck, then.

You can get them directly from their website. That's how I got ahold of mine.

I have to say, out of all of my dice, I love my Game Science Dice. They just roll better and I get a more random result compared to cheaper dice.

Well worth the money in my opinion

You cannot get them directly from Game Science's site anymore. They stopped selling them that way.
