Genevieve’s Secret Wyrmlings!
Introducing a brand new line of dice: Chromomancy Dice™, this year’s Collector’s Edition Gen Con dice has multiple-layers of color-changing premium resin encasing a perfectly transparent 3rd layer! All made in a brand new over-sized dice mold!
Featuring a dragon-ash and coal greys, our Gen Con 2021 dice change color with heat! A must-have collector’s piece.
Each set has the Gen Con logo on all d6s and d20s!
They look amazing!
Made of high-impact resin, with the same original layering process we invented for Halfsies Dice in 2013 that prevents air-bubbles from forming inside, Gate Keeper Games dice bear the honor of being the heaviest, densest, and most well-balanced resin dice on the planet!
Loot the Hoard with these options:
- 7-Die Sets – Contains a d4, d6, d8, d10, d% (00), d12 and a d20.
- 11-Die Sets – Contains a d4, d6, d8, d10, d% (00), d12 and a d20, PLUS 3 extra d6, and 1 extra d20 for rolling advantage/disadvantage.
- “16-Bit” Sets – Contains 2d4, 2d6, 2d8, 2d10, 2d% (00), 2d12, 2d20, and two randomly selected additional Genevieve’s Secret Wyrmling dice. Take a little gamble in the hoard! Come packed in a plastic baggie due to sheer volume of dice!
Q: Will these be available live at your Gen Con booth?
A: Yes. Our booth numbers are 419, 1624, and 2601. All 3 varieties of both 2021 designs will be at all 3 booths. All sets sold at Gen Con live will have the option to include a free Dice Keep on site.
Q: What are the best ways to heat the dice?
A: Any sufficient heat will do it! They change at about 90degrees F, 31 C! We find placing under running hot water is the most convenient and safest, but use of water is not required. The summer heat & sun, a hair-dryer, and even the microwave (about 1 minute on high) will work. We sorta advise against the microwave for potential safety and balance-integrity reasons …but we did test it and it worked like magic without causing any measurable warping in our experimentation.) All in all, hot water from your faucet is probably the easiest and safest way, though any sufficient “heat” will do!
Q: Is my body heat enough?
A: As hot as you may be, you’re probably not Genevieve’s type. Thus body heat usually isn’t enough to generate a complete change of color all the way through to the center of the die. Though they change at 90 degrees, and your body is 96.7, your skin runs cooler than that.
Q: Extra chonky dice size!?
A: Yes. All Gen Con 2021 dice have been upgraded 10-20% in size. The industry “standard” d20 nets out at 18-19mm. Our company standard d20s are a true 20mm. THESE d20s are 22mm! Every die in the whole set has been upgraded proportionately to the d20, for your chonky enjoyment!
Q: The price is higher than your usual sets. Why?
A: There are 2 main reasons, and neither of them are the “Collector’s Edition” nature. #1) The color-change pigmentation is incredibly expensive. If these were normal 3-layer Supernova style dice they’d still be $14.99 like last year’s sets; but the extra cost for these color-powders is just simply off the charts. #2) The dice are rather substantially larger than usual dice. At about 110-120% size our costs rise for that extra resin, though this is a cost we largely absorbed and tried not to pay forward. – All told, the MSRP on these is actually supposed to be closer to $21 for a 7-die set. We brought it down to what we would pay for it even if it were not “Collector’s Edition”. We hope you find the price as fair as we do. (We’re dice collector’s too, you know! : ).
This is our 3rd year making Gen Con dice, and we’re proud to always list them at true MSRP.
Q: Why not include Dice Keeps with all orders?
A: Due to the worldwide shipping kerfuffle, we don’t have enough Dice Keeps on hand to do that, but we still want you to be able to order them in advance of the big event (and Gen Con asked us to make them available in advance to reduce line-length at Gen Con, as in 2019 we had a line wrapping around the whole aisle to get the 2019 design.) We are expecting our restock of Dice Keeps to be here just in time for Gen Con.
Q: Why are there purchasing limits?
A: Stock is limited, so we are limiting purchasing limits to 5 items of each style per order. This allows you to snag a set for a friend, while helping ensure everyone gets a chance to get a set.
Q: Where is the other Gen Con set?
A: Check our “Gen Con” category of dice sets. You’ll find a few Collector’s Edition sets from last year’s event available there too.
