AKO DICE : POLYHEDRAL

Hi, everyone! My name is Kacha, and I am the creator of the original AKO Dice. Last year we ran a success campaign on Kickstarter, AKO Dice, which received overwhelming support from all over the world. Since then, we have received a lot of requests to make the dice in the Polyhedral design edition. We have been working on this project for about a year with ton of design iterations and countless of hours before coming to this final revision.

For the new design, we have taken great care for the proportion details because we believe every millimeter matters. We are using a sleek and simple idea to create the custom pattern based on each polyhedral shape and face to make them individually unique yet unified as a set.

 

 

 

 

After many designs and testing, we are very happy with the final prototype. We use the machine CNC process to craft each die from solid aluminum, which gives us the beautiful dice with top-quality precision.

In the final, we fine tune the overall details and apply smooth round corners to eliminate the sharp edges and help the dice roll better.

THE CONCEPT DESIGN

We start simple with each polyhedral shape by creating the offset line pattern that runs parallel to the edge of each face. Then, we connect the lines between the two adjacent faces that link the pattern to help emphasize the characteristic of the geometry.

The dice feel really good and roll well, and the numbers are clear and easy to read. Each set comes in a custom design package, and includes 7 dice (D4, D6, D8, D10, D00, D12, D20). The Polyhedral AKO Dice will be available in 5 anodized colors: Black, Red, Blue, Green, and Purple.

Risks and challenges

While there are potential challenges to this Kickstarter project, we admit that sometimes things just get in the way, and we promise to keep backers updated if we run into any production delays, problems with shipment and customs, or any other difficulties we may run across along the way.
However, with the similar advantage as our previous campaigns, we are confident that our experience will help us greatly and result in success here as well. We know we love to do this, and we believe this campaign is going to be awesome!
