As the DiCE are cast, the ante goes up

Recommended Posts


Announcement from the Ace of Hearts of The Deck of International Card Experts, aka DICE (ok, it is 3 days late, I was on vacation):

Less than 4 months ago, we made our DoE, as an alliance of elite members who were slightly laid back, and invitation only. Some changes have come since then, and we are now open to the public, but it is still not as easy as just posting. Since our inception, we have grown at a rapid rate through aid from within our alliance, and the normal growth rate and programs. It is now that we would like to announce our first milestone in total Nation Strength, 500k!!!


As you can see, we are a small Alliance at 22 members, but we have a quite tight-knit group, and we only hope to grow larger together, and have those new people come in and help us grow, as we will help them as well.

Just for those who wish to see our growth rate:


As you can see in there, it is a steady growth, and whenever we lose strength, we tend to gain it back quickly.

Finally, I would like to take this time to thank our most awesome protector during this period, Athens.



tl;dr: DiCe hit 500k with just 22 members and less than 4 months.

A Joint Announcement from Athens and the Deck of International Card Experts

:( They grow up so fast :(

Athens would like to extend our deepest congratulations to the Deck of International Card Experts on reaching the milestone of 500k TNS and hereby recognize DICE as an independent entity and declare that the protectorate treaty shared between our two alliances to be effectively null and void.

We wish DICE the best of luck and continued prosperity as they step out into the world on their own two feet. It has been a great pleasure working with you guys, and we are confident that you guys will continue to exceed our expectations in all the things you do. At this time, I would like to announce the following MDoAP between DICE and Athens. We are proud to call DICE a close friend and a trusted ally. Congratulations my friends and good luck in all your future endeavors.
