[Inked Adventures] Map and Dice Playing Cards – Price Reduction

[Inked Adventures] Map and Dice Playing Cards Inked Adventures

Inked Adventures is based in the UK and their Map & Dice Playing Cards are printed in the US. This is because DriveThruCards provide a print-on-demand and web store service of which there is no equivalent in the UK. However, their UK, Europe and international customers are sometimes reluctant to purchase due to the high cost of shipping. In the case of the UK the $12 USD cards cost $11.20 to post, that’s $23.20 or £15.25 in Her Royal Sterling. The prices DriveThruRPG/RPGNow/DriveThruCards charge for postage are standardised and there is almost no work around for Inked Adventures as a the small publisher. However, by massively reducing the price of the cards for everyone for a limited period (until January 11th 2016), we’re hoping that this will make our playing cards more palatable to customers outside of the US. In the case of the UK customer the total order for one pack will now will be $6.50+$11.20=$17.70 or £11.65. Still, not the cheapest price for a novelty roleplaying accessory, but this reduction is close to the wholesale publisher price which Inked Adventures use to sell to stall vendors (i.e. it’s pretty much as low as they can go). Of course this will mean our US cousins will be able to get them even cheaper, but hey, we probably have to them to thank for inventing money-off vouchers in the first place. Inked Adventures really want to share these babies with the world, because, let’s face it, sometimes mass cult-like status can be way more satisfying than money. They’re also hoping that if customers order now they may still be in time to receive the cards before Christmas.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
