Chessex recently notified retailers that their popular Lab Dice program is nearing the release of the fourth installment of the series.
Lab Dice is a relatively new effort by Chessex and has brought life back to the somewhat aged brand. It's been popular with dice collectors and tabletop gamers, alike. It's been so successful that some of the most popular dice sets in the series are difficult to find and when you do find them, they are much more expensive than retail price.
The first release of the series was the one that featured the Nebula Nocturnal dice set. It sold so many preorders that many customers had to settle for refunds instead of the dice as there wasn't enough sets to go around.
The second wave of Lab Dice was the one that featured the Nebula Oceanic set. While it has been much easier and less expensive to obtain on the secondary market relative to the Nebula Nocturnal, it also oversold in online preorders.
The third release's most popular set was the Gemini Translucent Red-Yellow dice set. On the third release, Chessex did a much better job meeting customer demands and all of the sets in the third release are still available.
It will be interesting to see what Chessex has cooking for the fourth Lab Dice release!
