Hex Chests Remastered: Artisan Dice Boxes

$88,823

Hihihi! We're Quentin and Dan, the Elderwood boys, and we think your gaming will be more fun with Hex Chests Remastered by your side. The Remastered edition is the result of our years of experience as wood dorks and expands on the stable of timeless features we've come to love.

Our Remastered Classic was designed in all ways to immerse you in your gaming world and heighten your tabletop experience. Just like their predecessors, Hex Chests Remastered are crafted in living wood, precision carved, and hand finished to bring out the balanced beauty of natural materials. We’ve redesigned the base and lined it in etched maple to showcase your dice, hidden the magnets under a series of beautiful inlays and accent wood, and appointed the lid with a supple, foil stamped leather lining for our softest finish yet. Hex Chest Remastered are pocket-sized so they can travel with you on your adventures, and as always, you fully customize your new Hex Chest with your choice of wood and signature or inlaid art, making them personal, pleasing, and wholly unique.

 

 

 

Spellweaver rewards let you craft your Hex Chests Remastered in any one of our select wood options. Each Spellweaver comes with an etched maple accent to exalt your dice.

As always, we want you to fully personalize your Elderwood goodies. Choose the signature engraved art that speaks to you and we'll etch it directly onto the lid of your Remastered Hex Chest.

 

 

Our Runemaster tier opens up the option to appoint your Remastered Hex Chest with lid-inlaid art. Keep an eye out for bonus art as the Kickstarter progresses.

 

 

 

 

 Want to feel like an intern for Penny Arcade’s Acquisitions Incorporated crew? Other than the dying part, we mean. And the wanton cruelty. And the poverty...

Let’s try that again: Want to feel very little like an Acq Inc intern? This is your moment! The awesome folks at Penny Arcade have designed their very own Hex Chest Remastered. It’s wrought in dark wenge, inlaid with an exclusive white maple design, and comes with the team’s special Acq Inc botch dice plus Acq Inc-themed velvet baggie. Remember: if it doesn’t say Acq Inc, it’s substantially less likely to end in a fiery, poverty-stricken death.

 Looking to elevate your dice? On a magnetic tray? Ensconced in walnut veneer? You have modest dreams, my friend; Epicurus would approve. If you pledge for That Floaty Thing From The Video reward, we’ll send you the base (power cord included!) along with the floaty magnetic walnut-encrusted puck. If you like the look in the video, add a Spellweaver or Runemaster reward to your pledge to complete the ensemble.

The Oblong Octagon is our extended length Hex Chest Remastered for when you absolutely, positively got to cram in every die in the room; accept no substitutes. Assuming that particular room has ten or fewer dice in it. Like Runemaster, this tier also includes your choice of top-inlay art.

 

Have an amazing idea for engraved top art that you've just got to have? For this reward we'll work with you one-on-one to create a wholly personalized, unique piece that we'll engrave on the lid of your choice of Hex Chest Remastered. We can only offer this option for art that you’ve got the rights to!

 

 

Build your own Hexagonal dice paradise! We've teamed up with Reddit user Gnome_Tsunami nee Dan Shirts to bring you laser cut flat packs that you assemble yourself! Includes laser cut wooden parts, plastic inserts, 12 magnets, instructions, and a bag for your masterpiece. Bring your own glue to the party for the best result.

DIY Hex kits are fun to put together and put you in the drivers seat for maximum personalization. Paint or stain them your favorite color, spray on your guild's logo, glue on some gemmy gems. Get a handful for your gaming crew and spend an evening customizing each one to your characters. Flat Pack rewards are your ticket to Funton (Funton is like 30 leagues north of Funtown but it's way more fun).

 

If you're as excited about Hex Chests Remastered as we are, we'll keep adding features and growing the possibilities together. Mage hand is a really versatile spell.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where you hidin' them magnets?

Strangers on the street are always asking us “WHERE DID YOU HIDE THE MAGNETS!?? WHERE ARE THEY!?” in a Batman voice. To clarify things we’ve included the answer in this image, buried deep within a fairly niche Kickstarter, bracketed in confusing copy. All plans work flawlessly.

And you guys are?

We're Quentin and Dan, two guys who love gaming and polishing our wood. A few years ago we stumbled into creating Elderwood Academy and we've been gleefully making our way through tabletop accessory projects ever since. If you ever want to reach out, share a suggestion, or just trigger a nonsensical theme-letter from one of us, we're at info@elderwoodacademy.com, @elderwoodboxes on Twitter and @ElderwoodAcademy on Instagram (we know, we know, "not confusing enough." Inconsistency!).

Okay, but why are you on Kickstarter?

We need Kickstarter to help jump start Hex Chest Remastered so that we can dedicate the time to collect enough materials, machinery, and practice to make each Hex Chest Remastered truly shine. Also, we like Kickstarter and it’s fun to digitally hang out with you guys.

Risks and challenges

We're now the veterans of three successful Kickstarters of our own. We've got elves, saws, and lumber just waiting to be put to use. Take the next step with us and help us carve more wood and play more games!
