TOO Late to this Kickstarter-- Get in touch with Cool Stuff, Inc to reserve your copy!

NEWS FLASH -- April 2, 2015!  Easier to attain Stretch goals now start at $50K!

The Pumm'ler is IN!  Thanks Backers!

This is the initial release of this BRAND NEW version of Tumblin’ Dice -- developed especially by Creator Rick Soued of Eagle-Gryphon Games and game designer Randy Nash. You'll get a new, multi-colored board made of high-quality, light-weight wood, with newly-designed dice, pegs and legs -- and all for the sensational price of $60!

Tumblin’ Dice is a dexterity dice board game consisting of a multi-colored playing field with four sets of colored dice that a player can slide, roll, and flick down its stepped surface. After each person or team has thrown their 4 dice, points are tallied and totaled.

A player can score a multiplier with each die roll, gaining up to 1x, 2x, 3x, or 4x depending on which area of the board the dice rest in. (Dice which land in the 0x region are immediately removed from play.)

Just like shuffleboard or curling, high scoring rolls can become targets for opponents who may hope to knock the die out of the game. Four rounds are played and the player with the most points wins!

Unique Gameplay! – Bring the fun of yard game classics to your living room. Perfect for a rainy day or an evening in!

  • Get a great price! Only $60 for KS backers. When this game is released for sale to the public, it will retail for $79.99.
  • Stretch Goals - Will be included to make your Kickstarter version of the game, and this deal, that much better. 
  • Bundled Deals! - ADD-Ons with TERRIFIC prices on other Eagle-Gryphon games featuring DICE can be added to any pledge of $55 or more.

 Tumblin' Dice includes:

  • High Quality multi-layered and multi-colored wooden game board with Four Interlocking Pieces
  • 7 Legs and 12 bumper pegs
  • 16 six-sided Dice in 4 Colors
  • Rulebook

 BRAND NEW VARIANTS for Tumblin’ Dice have been created, including:

  • Tumblin’ Cricket: Score with each side of the die four times. Rolling a die face on the same-numbered multiplier step counts as scoring multiple times (e.g. Rolling a two on the 2x multiplier step would count as rolling a two twice; while rolling a three on the 3x multiplier step would count as a three thrice; etc.)
  • Oh-One: Start with a score of 101, 201, or 301, etc. Subtract each round’s points from your score until one player has exactly 0 points.
  • Tumble Down the Stairs: Score each side of the dice in each zone once. First to score all possible combinations wins.
  • Tumblin’ Baseball: Each die is a batter for your side. Each multiplier is a single, double, triple, or home run. But be careful, if you roll a 1 or a two, your batter is tagged out by the fielding team. Player with the highest score after 9 innings wins.
  • Tumblers & Liars: A combination of Liar’s Dice and Tumblin’ Dice. Each round the player with the lowest score loses a die. If a player knocks another player’s die out of the game, they can steal one die. Last player standing wins.

The survey that you get after this KS project ends will ask you for this info.

Co-Sponsor & Fulfillment Partner: Cool Stuff, Inc.

We are very pleased to co-sponsor this project with Cool Stuff, Inc.  Cool Stuff, Inc will handle fulfillment of this Kickstarter!  By popular demand, Cool Stuff will arrange to have pick-ups at both GenCon and BGG.Con possible for Backers of this game.  The fee for this service will be $5, please add that amount to your pledge if you expect to pick up at either GenCon or BGG.Con (you will need to indicate your shipping destination is Antarctica to get this $5 option and then change that when you fill out your survey to your proper address).

This is a big box (with packaging it will be 18" by 16" by 6") and it requires protection as well. Packaged, it will weigh about 6.5 lbs. (3 KG).  So shipping is not cheap but we will do the best we can to find group opportunities in various countries which might reduce shipping costs.  We will ship US orders from Florida; Canadian orders from Ontario; Australian orders from Canberra; and Asian orders from China (mainland).

Tumblin' Dice will ship to many places in the world, but not to Europe--sorry!  U.S. shipping will be added automatically by Kickstarter as follows:

One copy = $18 to USA destinations (exception AK and HI = $34).  For two copies of the game in the US, shipping will be $27 (AK and HI = $60). We will offer a pick up service in the US at both GenCon and at BGG.Con for a $5 service fee--you will need to indicate your shipping destination is Antarctica to get this $5 option and then change that when you fill out your survey to your proper address.

The terms of our contract to produce Tumblin' Dice prohibit us from selling the game in the EU, or Europe in general, sorry!  To purchase a version of this game in Europe, please contact our good friends at Ferti Games (www.ferti-games.com) in France.

For most all other countries, the shipping is automatically added to your pledge. Internationally, we pay for shipping from China; customs and government fees and taxes; dock fees; transport to warehouse expenses; warehouse fulfillment charges (including handling and materials) and the postal rates charged by your country. If your country shows $0 (that would be impossible for us; or $500 (that would be impossible for you) then please send us a Message (not a Comment please) and tell us what you want and where you want it shipped to.  Thanks!

It has been our experience that many people (including sophisticated Kickstarter Backers) frequently confuse "shipping" expense and "postage" expense. What we try to cover with the above fees (in part) is shipping expenses, not just postage. Postage is the actual charge your country's postal service (or UPS, FedEx, etc) charges us to deliver a package within that country. Shipping is far more comprehensive and includes: getting the container shipped to the US, or Australia; the Customs and VAT (or equivalent) and other import fees and taxes; the drayage from the port to the warehouse (not cheap!); the warehouse fees to unload and sort out and prepare packages; the materials and labor involved in the last item; fees to the warehouse for their service to us, and only after all of that, the postage! We need to cover all of those costs--and they really add up. Frequently they cost as much or more than the game(s) did to produce. When we combine a low margin price (such as this one we are offering on Tumblin’ Dice) with this shipping expense, we do not make any profit if we are not very careful. The shipping we are charging for this project is as low as we can make it and still stay in business.

Internationally, for two or more games, get in touch with us and tell us the total of how many games you want and which ones; and where you would like them shipped.  To get in touch with us, please send us a Message (not a Comment please) using the "Contact Me" button at the top.

We will not ship to Russia, the Ukraine and select other places except for specially-made arrangements wherein the Backer takes the risk involved in getting the package actually delivered.


Risks and challenges

Eagle-Gryphon Games stands by our products, but sometimes issues do happen. Please contact our customer service department with regard to any such issues within 90 days of receiving your copy of Tumblin’ Dice.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur, especially when shipping to destinations outside of the US. We will obtain tracking information when it is possible, but sometimes it is not. We cannot guarantee that there will not be shipping problems, as we cannot guarantee the service and reliability of the various postal/delivery services involved around the world. You will have to assume that risk along with us.

Eagle-Gryphon Games has completed 42 Kickstarter projects to date. 37 of those projects have completed delivery. Five of the projects are in printing right now or have already been printed and are waiting to ship. We keep Backers notified by Updates about the status of their projects. We deliver on our promises reliably and usually on time (the very few delays we have ever had were related to production schedule issues which we have only, at best, partial control over).

To put it simply, you will get everything you are promised when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter Projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.
