In early 2019, Chessex announced that they would begin releasing what they termed their "Lab Dice" series. Lab Dice are limited-run dice sets produced by Chessex and released in groups. Some of the dice sets have become very sought-after, pushing the prices of certain sets up on the secondary market higher than their original sales price.
The Series 4 set is currently available for preorder. Currently, 4 of the 6 designs have been announced. The first two announced were the Nebula Copper Matrix-Orange and the Nebula Supernova-White sets. The second two announced were the Clear Pink set and the Black-White set. The final two sets announced are the Heavy™ Orange/Turquoise and the Heavy™ Turquoise/Orange sets.
The Series 3 release was an all-Gemini collection. The most popular set was Chessex's first all-translucent Gemini set, the Translucent Red-Yellow Set. It also featured the first Gemini sets to contain Chessex's proprietary Luminary glow-in-the-dark glitter. These two sets were the Gemini Gel Green-Pink set and the Gemini Copper-Turquoise set. Other sets in this release were Gemini Orange-Purple, Mint Green-White, and Red-Shite sets. All of these sets are still in circulation at present though this won't last forever.
Series 2 proved even more popular, with several sets being oversold on the primary market. This second series of Lab Dice consisted of Nebula Red, Nebula Oceanic, Nebula Spring, Lustrous, Amethyst, Leaf Fuschia, Vortex Snow Blue, Vortex Snow Pink, and Nebula Wisteria.
The first wave of Lab Dice, released in June 2019, consisted of the following sets: Festive Allusion, Festive Autumn, Festive Dahlia, Festive Flare, Lustrous Pink, & Nebula Nocturnal. Of the sets released in series 1, Nebula Nocturnal proved the most popular.
The upcoming Series 3 will be an all-Gemini collection. Gemini is Chessex's trademarked name for its two-color blend dice sets. It should be another popular release!
