"Go First" dice & others from Eric Harshbarger

Hi all!

If you haven't heard of them, go have a look at Go First Dice.
Basically it's a set of four d12 dice with all different numbers so there cannot be ties, and with numbers distributed in such a way that there is a fair chance on every roll that each dice can be the highest (and 2nd, etc.)
Not a game, but cool things, and can be used to determine player order.

The dice makers has these and some other interesting dice:

The Sicherman dice look cool too (a pair of d6's with weird numbers, but such that rolling them both is statistically the same as rolling a pair of normal d6's)

Would anyone else be interested in making a combined order to save on shipping costs?
Eric told me by email:
Shipping to Australia starts at +$10 per order (all monies in U.S. Dollars here). That would inch up to +$15 for, say 20 dice, and $20 for 50.

Shipping will be split relative to each buyer's total dice costs. E.g. me=$10 in dice, you=$5 -> I pay 2/3 of shipping, you pay 1/3.
I'm near Doncaster for pick-ups, and can drop orders in the NE&E suburbs, and city.

If you're interested, go to Eric's dice webpage and give me the full list of dice (with colours) that you'd like to get. I'd like to place the order early next week, that leaves you the weekend to think about it...

Mine turned up this week, and I can vouch they are very cool.

Your blog post on BGG is the reason I'm moving my a$$ right now, after contemplating them for 2 months!
Let me know if you need more... ;)
