So.... after playing a few times (we DO like it a lot!), we've come to the realization that the dice are, well, a little boring.

Obviously, they are custom dice, so why not make them colored? Blue and white (to match the sky theme) or "bronze" and "steel" (to match the airship theme)?

Or was that a stretch goal that I missed?

Glad you're enjoying the game, Norman!

When Quicksilver didn't reach our stretch goal dreams, the fancy dice upgrades were discarded for a second board and a set of simple bone-colored dice cut in the manner of dice in that age (rather than the rounded corners of recent years). We don't regret the choice of a second map for a second, but in a perfect world we would have added that extra flair.

Actually, in a perfect world, we hope to release an "upgrade pack" for Quicksilver with fancier dice, colored plastic minis, and a few other things. If/when the demand is there.

Until then, well, there's another Quicksilver stretch goal we hope to have available as a free downloadable PDF in time for GenCon...

Minis - yes, please! Especially if they are distinct designs. More than once we've had to back track when playing because someone moved the wrong cardboard token. Plus, the distinct designs will be even more appropriate once you release that faction expansion we know you're working on!

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes... upgraded bits would be wonderful!

One suggestion for the minis... use hexagonal bases. With the round bases, it's sometimes difficult to tell the facing of the airship.
