We've created a ratcheting dial system to display your current life points. The great thing about a ratcheting style system is your score can be saved in a game box or even in your pocket without losing place.
Throughout this Kickstarter, the main goal is to buy more filament to produce stock of our score counters. The initial goal will be to unlock 6 basic colors, which you can choose a primary and secondary color, along with a color style choice. This gives you 60 different configurations to choose from. The initial colors are Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Black and White.
Since launch we have unlock 10 more colors, Purple and Orange, Gray and Pink, Brown and Lime-Green, Royal Blue and Natural (clear/frosted glass), Magenta and Blue-Green, giving you 480 different combinations to pick from.
These are some sample pairing below.
Our standard system measures about 40mm x 38mm x 40mm. With these systems being 3D printed, some fluctuation could occur. We use a FDM style 3D printer and the initial layer height will be .25mm. Stretch goals will unlock improved layer height, along with a wide array of colors.
All additional prices are displayed in USD.
$3 - Turn a 3 dial system into a 4 dial system, per life counter
$5 - Turn a 3 dial system into a 5 dial system, per life counter
Example, if you order the Dual Counters for $24 and want one to be a 4 dial system, your pledge before shipping would be $27. If you want both to be a 4 dial system, your pledge before shipping would be $30.
$5 - Add an SVG icon from https://game-icons.net/ The icon you choose will go on both ends of your counter. This add on is $5 for each different icon. The icon color will match the arrow color of the system.
Example, if you order the Dual Counters for $24 and want to add an icon to 1 of them, your pledge before shipping would be $29. If the same icon is used on both, the pledge will still be $29. If you want both to have different icons, your pledge before shipping would be $34. If you order our 6 pack and they all have different icons, your pledge before shipping would be $90, if they are all using the same icon, it would be $65.
The SVG will appear about 25mm x 25mm centered on the ends. The will face up, when the arrows are pointed directly forward.

Exchange rates constantly change. As we are unable to update reward descriptions, we advise you to look at the current exchange rate towards the end of the campaign and adjust accordingly. Thank you.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge this project will face is on-time delivery. The more colors we unlock, the more improved layer height quality, the longer it will take to print out all the systems. Current projections are to produce about 40-50 systems a week.
Orders will be fulfilled in 2 main factors, your backer number and your color choice. If backer number 1 picks color combo Blue and White, Style 2, and they turn in our survey quickly, their order will hit our printers pretty much first.
What we'll do is load our printer to make the most efficient number of that choice we can in a day. We will than ship out to Backer 1, along with other backers who have chosen that color combo. Which means if backers 1, 6, and 360 are the only ones with that choice, 360 will probably receive the item before backer 100. If you order multiple sets in different colors, those will also delay your order.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
