9/7/2002 - Cheepass
Games has reduced staff and as a
result some products will be
delayed. Specifically Diceland:
Infinite Space should now be out
in November or December
7/24/2002 - I
found a better preview of Diceland:
Infinite Space on Cheepass's
official expansion for Diceland is set in
the world of our new computer game,
Strange Adventures in Infinite Space. Four
armies of spaceships from the Diceland
universe, including the Muktians, the
Garthans, the Terrans, and the Urluquai,
plus one extra die (the Klackar) make
Diceland: Infinite Space a complete
stand-alone Diceland set. In addition, the
dice are completely balanced (though
thematically jarring) with the characters
in Dicleand: Deep White Sea. Diceland:
Infinite Space will also contain rules for
combining armies and building your own
crews, and several new abilities including
Cloaking! Coming in September 2002, 25
dice for $15."
7/16/2002 - Diceland
is a tabletop combat game that uses paper
dice as the characters. The dice are
eight-sided, printed in full color, and
about 2 inches to a side. Each die is
pre-cut and scored, and assembles with
just tabs and slots. The "paper"
in these paper dice is 12-point coated
cardstock, which makes these dice solid
enough to withstand any amount of normal
Due out in September is
the 2nd expansion, Infinite Space,
which takes the game into space includes
four new armies of spaceships from the Cheapass
computer game Strange Adventures in
Infinite Space as well as new
combat and construction rules.
