How Does The FF6 Dice Work?
FF6 = Full Face 6 (sided)
To read the dice:
Don't look at the grooves.
Only look at the whole surface of the face (focus on just the green part in the image below). Once you have seen the digits you can not un-see them!
Interestingly, an even amount of material (16.3%) is machined off each face of the FF6 unlike a traditional die where each face has different amounts of material removed thus, meaning the FF6 is nicely balanced.
Most people's reaction after studying the FF6 is to say 'but there are only 1 or 2 grooves on each side?' I then tell them to ignore the grooves and focus on the whole die face, after studying it for a little bit longer, they smile and say 'Wow...that's cool'.

Easter Bonanza - Update
I am so excited to announce that we are now almost 3/4 funded.
As a thank you, I would like to offer my backers a special Add-On to celebrate Easter – but hurry, as these eye-catching inverse anodised aluminium dice are a strictly Limited Edition.
Introducing the FF6i:
I really wanted to give something back and show my appreciation for your support so, not only are these dice Limited Editions, but I am offering the FF6i's at a special Kickstarter Add-On price of only £12 per die (worldwide shipping included).
Manufacturing the FF6i's actually requires a more complex process than the standard FF6’s but, despite this, I wanted to give my supporters something extra special to say, “Thank You!” by offering you the FF6i at a discount.
In order to take advantage of this Limited Edition offer, simply increase your pledge amount by £12 for each FF6i you would like and then SEND ME A MESSAGE WITH THE DETAILS. (This allows me to keep track of the numbers!) My reply to you will be your confirmation.
I hope you like them as much as I do!
Q. How is the FF6i created?
A. First the Raw Aluminium is loaded into the CNC machine and milled into a standard FF6 die. It is then fully anodised into your chosen colour, before being re-loaded into the CNC machine, which mills off the outer surface material, leaving the inner cut-outs and bevels still coloured.
Q. Can I buy just the FF6i's on their own?
A. No, sorry. Due to the extra machining required and extra low price point, the FF6i's are only available as an Add-On to an existing FF6 die pledge.
Q. How many FF6i's can I add?
A. You can add as many FF6i's as you like. Just increase your pledge by £12 per FF6i required and be sure to send me a message me with details of your selections. I will then reply to you to confirm.
Q. How many FF6i Limited Editions will be manufactured?
A. A maximum of 250pcs Red Anodised Aluminium + 250pcs Black anodised aluminium (Total of 500 FF6i Dice)
Risks and challenges
I have been very careful to select a local precision engineering machine shop that is more than capable of delivering this product to a very high standard as well as on time.
I intend to keep this campaign simple and stick to my original plan.
If any problems do arise, then I shall give them my full attention, so that they can be rectified as soon as possible, as well as keeping everyone informed along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
