Here is an update for you: The construction of the dice has begun.
Meanwhile the Dutch ship, Les Tres Hombres, which will be taking the dice out to sea, is slowly making its way down to Lisbon.
You can follow their progress here:
On the 10th of November the dice will be loaded (!) onboard Les Tres Hombres. I will join the ship as well and we will then set sail for Madeira and then the Canary Islands. The dice will be dropped into the sea somewhere along the way when conditions permit i.e. windy and wavey.
The motion on the ocean is already shaking the dice.
