About Our Products
We remember when Stratego and Risk used wooden pieces... and we will always make our
products available in wood as long as gamers want them!
Counter Sleds come unfinished in standard paks of 25. Custom amounts are available (larger
and smaller), please send us a letter or email indicating the quantity you are interested in.
Our smaller Counter Sleds hold up to 5 counters of average thickness. Design & gravity hold the
counters on the sled. Counter Sleds work best with a flat surface like mounted maps or plexiglass
over paper maps.
All Counter Sleds are 100% made in the USA from hardwood, usually white maple, while some
sizes may be provided in other wood varieties such as poplar. If you have a specific wood in mind
please ask us.
Our newest product line, BattleHexes, were introduced in 2009 (our 10th year!), and continue our
tradition of creating useful products for gamers made from hardwood. This product was the brain
child of one of our good customers (Mr Jim O'Neill). BattleHexes are provided in poplar which
contains white & green color variation naturally, and they come unfinished in quantities of 12 or 24.
If you are interested in custom thickness BattleHexes or a different size, please email us.
All of our products are suitable for painting.
About Our Company
RDOXX Inc is all about game playing. RDOXX founder and inventor of Counter Sleds (Dennis
O'Brien) is a long time gamer (since the 6th grade when he and a friend of his discovered the 1964
version of Avalon Hill's Gettysburg in his friend's Dad's closet!) In high school he spent many a
Friday night riding the subway to 23rd Street in NYC to playtest games for SPI (and eat NYC pizza!).
He got enamored with limited intelligence, tried inverted counters and double-blind systems, but it
was hard enough to find a flesh and blood opponent much less a moderator too...then one day
(about 1986) he hit on the idea of Counter Sleds! Several years later... he found a way to get them
into production and into gamers hands without going into major debt...and RDOXX Inc was born in
RDOXX got its first sales via the The Gamers Consortium (many thanks to Dean and Sara) in 2000.
After The Gamers sale to MMP (2001) the Consortium was no more and we had a brief stint with
Homer Games (Thanks Sandi!). We also tried another un-named re-seller who dumped the
product at low prices (for some lucky gamers). Now we are concentrating on direct sales via the
web, conventions, word-of-mouth, and occasional ads in publications like F&M and S&T.
If you have ideas about how we could improve our products (or add new ones) please let us know.
We have a moderated forum on ConsimWorld under the Consim Cafe area (kudos to John Kranz).
Gaming Accessory: Counter Sleds (RDOXX)
We do not sell through third party re-sellers at this time, we only sell direct to gamers. This is
because re-sellers want discounts of 40-60% (to provide their profit margin) and then they discount
off list prices and then we have to cut prices to avoid being undersold ourselves etc. etc. which
undermines the whole concept of having a list price IMO...
