AKO DICE II

Hi, everyone! Thank you so much for checking out my newest campaign! It’s me again, Kacha, the creator of the Zen dice and the original AKO Dice! Our previous campaign was the huge success, and we are so proud that we shipped out over 6,500 rewards to our awesome backers! After completing the bulk of the initial orders, we feel confident that the world is ready for our newest generation of gaming dice. I am thrilled to introduce to you the next generation of metal dice: AKO DICE II

AKO DICE II are a brand-new series of completely redesigned custom metal dice that will enhance your game play once again. Our new set of dice features a cool, sleek design with a completely redesigned configuration of pips to give it a new look. The new AKO DICE II design changes the way dice roll, are nearly perfect balanced, and allow an almost completely equal chance on every roll, and no favored sides! With an extra rounded corner to compliment the flat die faces, this die allows a great roll, and a guaranteed stop when used in game play. We did lot of testing and have found that the dice roll great on both hard and soft surfaces, allowing you to take your gaming experience almost anywhere!

CONCEPT

This may be the next generation of AKO DICE, but they are definitely a completely different breed. This new dice design changes everything. With soft corners, and a flat surface, this concept combines the traditional cube dice design with a sphere, then shaving off the corners to enhance roll and stoppage of the dice. 

The newly designed AKO DICE II come in custom packaging as a set of two dice. Each die is a standard 16mm D6 die, with an approximate weight of 9 grams per die. Our dice are crafted from strong, sleek aluminum metal and finished with color anodized with a smooth surface available in 6 colors: black, silver, red, blue, green, and purple. We also have unlocked : Gunmetal and Rose Gold anodized as well as Stainless Steel and Gold Brass!

Risks and challenges

Every campaign is bound to have its snags, delays, and learning curves. However, I feel so blessed that we have had previous successful campaigns prior to this, including the original AKO DICE. We have learned a lot from deliver over 6,500 rewards to our backers and we are confident that we will finish the project this time too. With the similar advantage as our previous campaign, the small size of this product and simplicity of production without any electrical and moving parts would help minimize complex assembly manufacturing lines. Despite this, I admit sometimes some things just get in the way, and I promise to keep my customers and backers updated if we run into any production delays, problems with shipment and customs, and any other difficulties we may run across along the way.
