About

Can't find the dice for your dice game? Lost one of the needed die? Annoyed at dice dropping off a table? Tired of summing up the value of several dice? 

Then what you need is an eDice, one die to rule all!  

Thanks to Kickstarter and all the backers, with your help, we had successfully brought U-DICE to life during 2015. So far, we have received a lot of valuable suggestions from our community. With the addition of new team members, we have completely redesigned it with new hardware and software, to create a much more powerful and user friendly version, so now comes eDice.

Break Kickstarter:  Chance to win "Double Reward"

During the campaign, for every 100 backers, we will use eDice to draw one lucky backer to win the prize of "Double Reward". The selected backers will receive their rewards in double, means if you pledged one eDice, you will receive 2, if you pledged 5 eDice, you will receive 10!

The draw video and result will be published in an update every 100 backers. 

Available dice

eDice is capable of replicating 13 types of normal dice with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10,12, 20, 24, 30, and 100 faces, plus a fudge die with the value of -1, 0, 1.

Dice selection   

There are 2 methods to select the dice for each roll : dice pick method and dice formula method.   

Dice pick method:   

You can pick up to 12 dice from the available dice list on the dice pick screen.

 Dice formula method: 

You can specify the dice with the following formula :   

                        AdX x C + B  

A is the number of dice to be rolled, X is the number of faces of each die, x denotes multiplication, C is a natural number, while B is a number to be added to the sum of the rolls (or subtracted from the sum of the rolls if the + sign is replaced by the - sign) .  

A : 1 ~ 15 

X : 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, 24, 30, %, F  

C : 1 ~ 20  

+: + or -  

B: 0 ~ 20  

For example, "3d6×10+3" means "roll three 6-sided dice, add them together, multiply the result by 10, and then add 3."  

Presets  

A preset is a notation of dice used for a dice roll.  

There are 2 types of presets : Roll presets and Game presets.  

Roll presets:  

Roll presets has up to 12 presets, each preset can be specified by either the dice pick or dice formula method.

Game presets:   

Game presets are used for easily changing the preset during a game.

There are 4 game presets, each game preset has up to 6 presets which can be specified by the dice pick method, dice formula method, or direct selection from the roll presets.

When you select a game preset to play, you can easily press the left button to change to the next preset in that game preset. 

Roll the dice  

Before rolling the dice, you first need to select the specified preset with the following 4 methods:  

  • Dice pick  
  • Dice formula  
  • Roll presets  
  • Game presets

To roll the dice, just give eDice a tap or shake, or press the right button; it will begin the rolling animation on the screen for 1 second, then display the roll result.   

Roll result  

The following is a typical roll result screen:

The dice roll results are displayed in 1, 2 or 3 rows according to the dice amount selected to roll. The die faces are only displayed when there are different dice in one roll. Roll sum result is calculated based on the preset selected, whether through dice pick or dice formula.   

Whether the d6 die is displayed with number or pips is controlled by its preference setting.  

Roll history  

There are up to 12 roll histories available for you to check. On the roll result screen, hold the right button to launch the roll history screen. On that screen, press the right button for a different roll history, press the left button to exit the history screen.

Menu system   

Main menu:

Within the roll result screen, hold the left button to launch the main menu, where you could create or select a preset to play, configure your settings, or access tools and information.

Settings:

Settings menu is used to configure the roll presets, game presets, and launch the preferences menu.   

Preferences:

Preferences menu is used to modify your preferences, such as toggling the dips display of the d6 dice, changing the screen brightness and the time to enter sleep mode, etc.     

Auto sleep  

eDice will automatically enter sleep mode after 15 seconds (adjustable) without any action in order to save the battery. Give it a shake or press any button to wake it up with the previous roll result. Within 2 seconds, the roll action is disabled to lock the displayed roll result.  

Rechargeable battery powered  

eDice is powered with a 150mAh lithium-ion polymer battery which can be charged with a normal Micro USB cable.  

An red LED indicator turns on during charging and turns off after it is fully charged. It takes about 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery. One full charge is capable of playing 48 hours without entering the sleep mode. 

Beyond dice  

Tools 

There is 1 tool (stopwatch) in the prototype version.

Other features    

More features could be added before the production ends, so any suggestion of the current feature optimization and new features is highly welcome.

Timeline

Risks and challenges

The prototype of eDice is already fully functional. With minimal tooling modifications, it is ready for production. We had successfully fulfilled our previous U-DICE campaign on schedule during 2015, we are confident in this campaign as well. That said, there is always the possibility of delays due to things beyond our control at the manufacturer’s facility. We will keep you closely updated with the progress and work hard to ship the rewards to you on schedule.
