Already mentioned 2 weeks ago in this thread.

The engraved dice are really nice, but doesn't look exactly as on the picture...

Cool figured they needed their own thread because they are that awesome.

Mine did. Or as close as you can reasonably imagine, since they're engraved, and not computer-created images like in that picture.

Yeah as discussed in the recent threads, that has been confirmed by Repos as a computer generated representation. I had fallen for it though so I was disappointed when after much hassle I received what *appeared* to be an inferior product, which is a shame because if they'd used real photos on their site I would have been happy with what I received.whistle

Different to the computer generated version, the "ghost" symbols are not sharp, kinda blurry, and the black dice images are less distinct, more blobby, kinda wonky. The "white" side of the dice is just uncoloured, not a grey background as in the promo picture, except it feels like it's got a grubby tinge like someone rubbed a dirty thumb over it. Also the coloured circles are now ovals - which is a shame because I prefer circles.

I expect the difference is due to the difficulty of engraving.

I think they look good, way better than the sticky ones that came with the game. Did it come with a dice bag too? I ordered two sets.

Yes. I got a dice bag that matches the one in the picture with my dice.
