Country of Origin:
2 5/8" (16mm) custom precision dice
Apparently in anticipation of the re-printing of Code of Bushido and Gung Ho in the form of Rising Sun, in the summer of 2013, Battleschool began a new series of dice dubbed the “Pacific Series,” one of the first of which was a pair of USMC-themed dice.
This set consists of two 5/8″ (16mm) custom precision dice. One is white and where the 1-pip would normally be is instead a silhouette that slightly resembles the flag-raising on Iwo Jima.
The other die is amber in color and in lieu of the 1-pip features a red USMC logo. Unfortunately, at a number of angles the red foil is extremely hard to read against the amber die, so what would have been a very attractive pair of dice consequently loses a little bit of its luster.
Players should be aware that these 5/8″ dice are fairly large and can get stuck in smaller dice towers.
Despite the problems with the amber die, ASL fans of the USMC may still be tempted to get this.
