This is not for everyone, but read on:
Monopoly? Parcheesi? Do you love dice games, but hate having to use dice?
By shuffling the 36-card deck of Card "Dice," and using only the top card to represent the "roll" of two six-sided dice (to include doubles rolled), Card "Dice" solves a number of frustrating problems with using conventional dice:
Take the time a die falls off a game table when rolled -- thus making the players decide whether both dice need to be re-rolled, or just the one that fell. There is nothing to fall off the table with Card "Dice."
Or what about the times when dice rolled crashes into game pieces! No need to reconstruct game piece positions using Card "Dice."
Then, there's the misreading of the dice faces and the "math errors" of adding up the two die faces. With Card "Dice," there's simply one number shown, from 2 to 12. When doubles are rolled, "doubles" appears below the number, when applicable. The potential for ambiguity for reading dice is removed when using Card "Dice."
And what about the player who palms the dice and miraculously rolls the exact number needed -- over and over? Check out the following two YouTube videos to see what I mean:

A shuffle of the deck of Card "Dice" will solve that problem fast.
Clearly, these cards aren't for everyone, but as a novelty gift, stocking stuffer, party favor, or even -- yes-- for those who want to use them as a serious substitute for annoying dice from any combination of the above scenarios, Card "Dice" is for you! Intimidate your dice-wielding players by using Card "Dice" instead.
For whatever reason, please back this project and make Card "Dice" a success! You're given two options: (1) the affordable option of a shrink-wrapped deck inserted in a plastic sleeve, or (2) the more expensive option of a deck placed inside a shrink-wrapped labeled tuck box. Your choice.
CHANGES FROM PRIOR CAMPAIGN:
So, how does this differ from what I offered the last time? (1) the backs of the cards are more graphically enhanced (a pair of dice) for a more pleasing look; (2) a professionally designed tuck box option is now available for storing the cards (for the $23 backer) instead of only the reclosable plastic sleeve (still a value option for $16 backers); and (3) the 6-card (for one 6-sided die) has been dropped because it was deemed to be impractical. With these changes, I hope you'll agree that this new campaign is worth backing.
Risks and challenges
The decks have already been manufactured, so the only downside is if the goal is not met. With only a small number of backers needed, this should not be a problem. Yes, they are a little pricy, but I do need to cover manufacturing and shipping costs.
