One of the pictures shows prototype components and in another doesn't look like they are engraved, but maybe that was a components mock-up. I just ask because I'm reminded of the first edition of King of Tokyo where the dice were not engraved and the sides started rubbing off due to extensive play. Iello went with engraved for their second print run, but that didn't really help 1st edition owners. Iello are/were planning on making Engraved Dice available separately for 1st edition owners but it hasn't happened yet, meaning they continue to wait or had to pay to upgrade.

Maybe I'm blowing things out of proportion and/or Asmodee make good dice because the sides of my Ghost Story dice haven't rubbed off yet and I've played that over 40 times.

Either way, just curious.

The designer responded here: http://boardgamegeek.com/article/9086354#9086354

In short, not painted or stickered.

(Copied from my response on the other thread)

I received a preview copy, and these are some of the nicest dice I've ever seen. Large, with vibrant colors, and yes, nicely etched and perfectly readable on every face (once you get used to the game's symbols, of course.)

The insert is gaming nirvana. Everything fits perfectly. There are four long, large compartments for storing the dice of each color side by side.

In short--if production quality is your concern, worry no more. This one has been done RIGHT.
