Renegade Games is joining other game publishers in creating a retailer program, called Play Renegade, that is meant to bring more value and benefits to shopping at brick and mortar stores. Their preferred method for doing this is through the offering of promos, and their game FUSE will be the first game in the program. For every retailer that orders more than three copies of FUSE, they will get a set of translucent dice for the game that they can use for promotions or giveaways to draw people into the store.
More games will be added as time goes on so keep an eye out for those, until then you can read the full press release on the Roleplayer’s Chronicle site.
