NEXT UP:

Foam Brain Dice: Metals II

In 2013, Foam Brain Games brought out a brand new Metal Dice set to kickstarter - it was a thrilling ride, we got to make a cool product, meet tons of awesome backers, and win over the hearts of gamers.

We shipped thousands of metal dice to hundreds of backers across the country. Since then we've produced thousands of pins, tie clips, cufflinks, flasks and jewelry and shipped them around the world. We recently produced our first ever shirts based on the Sentinels of the Multiverse line too!

Who doesn't want more Metal dice?! 

We've always wanted a chance to expand our line of premium quality Metal dice and it is with this project that it will allow us to do so with your support! 

You can view our original Metal Dice campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1006691271/foam-brain-dice-metals

...the Dice Gods Cometh!

With all of the metal work we've done over the last 2 years, we've come up with lots of cool ideas for things we can do.

There are now 3 newly designed styles of dice available for this project and in addition to our current lines of dice, we have all new colors of Antique Silver, Antique Brass and Nickel Black!

We've also enhanced the bags that our dice sets come in, in an attempt to make sure that you can show off your shiny metal dice in an equally exemplary enclosure.

New Colors

Antiqued Brass

Antiqued Silver

Nickel Black

New Styles

20-Sided Countdown Die (Overized 30mm die)

This is going to be a larger 20-sided die (about 1.5x the diameter of our D20) with the numbers arranged in order from 20-1. Popular with boardgamers and CCG players, this makes it easy to track scores and life totals.

3-Sided Die (16mm)

This 3 sided prism-shaped die randomly determines a number between 1 and 3. 

Rounded Spotted D6 (12mm and 16mm)

Similar to our numerical rounded die, this will be a 6 sided die with rounded sides and corners, and spots.

Risks and challenges

This is our 8th Kickstarter project, and, while we have occasionally had production challenges, we've developed a wide variety of strategies to ensure that our customers ultimately get awesome products. Currently, all but one of our campaigns has shipped, and while that last campaign is late, we've been proactive about ensuring that our customers know the current status (waiting for its slot on a production queue at a factory) and what has caused the delays. We've absorbed the costs of redoing work that we considered unacceptable, since we'd rather get out a better product slightly late than a poor product on time.

For this campaign, we've developed a timeline that we believe is reasonable and accounts for Chinese New Year and other issues that might affect it. 4 new molds (plus any stretch goals) need to be created, but we don't think this will cause significant issues. We've learned a lot about sorting and shipping items (our last campaign had almost 150 different items\colors\sizes produced and we had a less than 1% shipping error rate).
