Of Dice And Men: The "Axis Of Civil"
(email to a friend)

RESTON, VA - The CIA wants you to know they are more than cloak-and-dagger government infiltrators. "The mission is to maintain peace, not just support war," said former Director of the CIA, John M. Deutch. "This new product puts that vision before the American public. I think it's a perfect play on the Iraqi Playing Cards idea." Deutch is describing the CIA's newest PR campaign, making available a pair of over-sized dice bearing the faces of men and women around the world that they do not need to worry about. "These are the Good Guys," said Deutch, "An Axis of Civil, as it were."

The faces on the dice include:

  • Tony Blair
  • Jimmy Carter
  • Shirin Ebadi
  • Mary Robinson
The dice measure two inches on a side and are made from a durable plastic polymer, "making them weigh comfortably in the hand, like a small bocce ball. The faces are printed into each side of the dice, so they won't easily scratch off. They are really just lovely pieces," said Holly Augmum, lead designer on the project. Augmum's firm, Uneek Designs, was chosen out of a pool of five firms to generate the new product. "The CIA told us they wanted to say something positive, they wanted it to be fun and relevant, and they wanted to keep the unit cost low enough that people could buy it on impulse."

At $24.95 and $6 shipping, it isn't exactly an impulse buy. Still, orders have been brisk. "We're seeing more orders every day. People order several sets," said Fulfillment Director Artie Cleese, "This keeps up, we'll need to open up another line of production."

The full list of faces and pictures as well as ordering information, is available on the CIA's website.
