Are the dice that come with game printed or impressed and inked?
The leader upgrade miniatures, are they soft or hard plastic; are they cast as one piece figures or each is a kit of parts?
The building upgrade - plastic soft or hard?
The dice in the Birth of America Series (ie. 1812, 1775, 1754) are engraved dice. I don't see any reason why the dcie for 878 would be any different.
