Foam Brain Games is your friendly local game store and convention addict, and we'd like to invite you to join us in producing one of the coolest ideas we've ever had.

Dice SpinPins combine two of our favorite things, dice and geekiness, into one awesome product. These metal pins are both stylish and functional, allowing you to take working dice with you wherever you go!

We've spent some time testing these and have found no end of cool uses and different fun styles we want to make, so we're excited to be running another Kickstarter to produce a wide variety of pins.


SpinPins?

SpinPins are metal pins that contain a back piece with an arrow and a free spinning front piece with a random element such as numbers. By spinning the front, you can randomly select one of the numbers on it (similar to a prize wheel or wheel of fortune wheel). The pin back allows them to easily attach to a bag, shirt or jacket. By ensuring the varied distribution of numbers around the wheel and by keeping the wheel a uniform weight, SpinPins produce a fair random number when spun.

SpinPins are about 1.5" in diameter and weigh about 1.5 ounces. They attach in the back via a butterfly clasp. While they're not nickel-free, you can get a rubber backer instead of the traditional metal clasp. It doens't prevent the pin from spinning as much, but it does mean the part that makes contact with the interior of your shirt, bag, etc is nonmetallic.

Colors and Styles

We will be starting by offering 4 colors of SpinPins: Purple, Red, Black\White and Rainbow. In each of the images below the grey represents silver metal on the final pin. We hope to add an additional color via stretch goals, and you can get a custom color with the $300 or $1000 tiers.

We're going to start by offering 12 styles, though we expect to add more via stretch goals throughout the campaign. All of our styles will be available in each of the colors offered.

D20

D12

D1%

D10 (these will have a '0' instead of a '10' in the final version)

D8

D6

D4

D2 (Heads, Tails)

Rock Paper Scissors

D6 w\Pips

FUDGE Die

Emoticons 

We'll be using a survey during the campaign to help decide which additional styles get added as stretch goals.

Risks and challenges

This is our third Kickstarter Project and I think we've learned a lot from our last two campaigns. For our second project, we managed to send out hundreds of rewards in the space of only 1 day, and did a great job making sure they went out correctly and on time.

This project should be fairly straightforward - the prototypes look and feel good, and we've worked with this manufacturer before (on Foam Brain Dice: Metals and D20 Pins). Chinese New Year means we won't be able to make any progress on getting stretch goals prototyped during the Kickstarter, but we're ready to pick right back up again after it's finished.
