We're Funded!

Thanks for making it happen so quickly. We're working on more stretch goals, stay tuned.

STRETCH GOAL 1 - MADE!

$8,250 – Expansion Team – If we make this stretch goal FUMBBL will raise the maximum number of active teams a coach may have from 42 to 100.

-------------------------------------------

STRETCH GOAL 2 - MADE!

$8,500 – Magic Sponge – Every pledge level will receive a Magic Sponge that can be used to remove a single niggle form any one of their players.

-------------------------------------------

STRETCH GOAL 3 - MADE!

$8,888 – Lucky Eights – We will include a free black d8 die with every set of dice. E.g. League MVP level would receive 10 free d8s.

-------------------------------------------

STRETCH GOAL 4 - MADE!

$9,500 – Rollin' – We will produce a set of two black six-sided dice with white pips and the FUMBBL "F-die" logo in the '6' OR '1' position to compliment your stylish block dice. Add $5 to your pledge and you will receive one set (2 dice) for each set of block dice in the pledge up to a maximum of 10 sets per pledge. You will be able to choose whether you want the logo on the '1' or the '6' side when you receive your survey. If you want more dice beyond those included for the extra $5, please add $2 to your pledge for each additional set of two dice you wish to purchase.

-------------------------------------------

STRETCH GOAL 5 - MADE!

$11,000 – It'Snot Stopping The pledges keep coming, and as a thank you, all backers will gain the services of our Snotling Hero in charge of donations! This diminutive star will be available for a single use in any game of your choosing (as long as he does not bring the player total over 16). Additionally, backers will gain a permanent Snotling Hero icon on their user page to show they backed the FUMBBL block dice Kickstarter!

-------------------------------------------

STRETCH GOAL 6 - MADE!

$12,000 – All In! – We will produce FUMBBL poker chips with the FUMBBL F-logo on one side and the skull on the flip side. These unique chips, in black, red and green, can be used as turn markers, reroll counters and for coin tosses. Each pledge will receive one free coloured chip per set of block dice in the pledge level. Please add $1 to your pledge for each additional chip you want.

The chips will be 11.5g striped dice poker chips in your choice red, black and/or green and heat stamped in silver foil. One side will have the FUMBBL F-logo and the other the skull. This image is for mockup purposes only, the final product may vary.

-------------------------------------------

We've had a few questions about the the Kickstarter, so here's a quick outline of how our project works:

1. People like you guys pledge towards the project
2. At any time, you can go to "Manage your pledge" and update totals, adding funds to cover extra unlimited pledges as appropriate. (E.g. You want 20 sets of dice, pledge the $155 level, but pledge $315 (2x155 plus $5 shipping).)
3. If you want to pledge for multiple limited pledges, you'll unfortunately have to create an amazon account for each limited pledge (you can connect multiple accounts to the same card) and simply use the other accounts to pledge for further limited pledges. Please note, you cannot use this method to secure multiple pledges that include potions.
4. Once the time for the project ends, the money will be withdrawn from all backers and transferred into the amazon payments account of the project starter.
5. A survey will be sent out to all backers, asking for further information. For example, you'll be able to supply the FUMBBL coach name, detail which rewards you have pledged for and confirm your shipping address.
6. We place the order to produce the dice.
7. On-site based rewards are processed.
8. Once manufactured, dice and other rewards are shipped out to backers.

We apologize for the shipping not being included in the cost of each level due to our inexperience with Kickstarter. We were not aware that backers could not select multiple pledge levels.

If you have any further questions, feel free to get in touch

This project has been the result of Christer, WhatBall, Kalimar and SunDevil wanting to do something special to celebrate FUMBBL and to thank FUMBBL supporters worldwide!

SunDevil took on the project - meaning he bothered everyone until they gave in!  He contacted Christer and found out that WhatBall, the creator of the actual dice design, had already begun exploring options to make this happen!  SunDevil scouted out some companies, finally finding one that would do multi-colored, etched sides.  WhatBall sent cleaner versions of the images for each side of the die. Christer paid the frieght for the prototype run of 12 dice, 3 of which you can see on the front page! They were sent to SunDevil and he sent them on to Sweden (Christer), Canada (WhatBall) and Germany (Kalimar).  Once they all had the prototypes in hand, we got to work on this Kickstarter project!

We think we will exceed our goal of $8000 so we have some terrific STRETCH GOALS ready to go!  Let's get to them!

Stay off the sidelines and get your FUMBBL dice!

Risks and challenges

We already have an agreement with Gamestation to produce these lovely dice to thank fans of FUMBBL worldwide! They have alreaady completed 12 prototypes, 3 of which you saw on the front page. There will be a slight tweak to the blue and yellow as those were custom colors and we are trying to keep the costs down by picking colors from their commonly-used options. We forsee no delay with these dice - the company assures us that if the Kickstarter finishes in December and we order then, they can have these ready by March. It is possible that weather or other unforseen events could delay this but we will stick with this until the end. As soon as I get the dice, I will be sending the European and Asian orders to Christer in Sweden, where he will handle those. I'll handle the North/South America and Australian orders.

One of the stretch goals is a pair of FUMBBL D6s. We have a standing agreement with Chessex in England to produce these - they have the image and we have their estimate. These would be shipped to Christer upon production and he would then send the NA/SA/Aus orders to me to distribute. These have been promised to us by March but there is always the possibility of delays, especially with shipping all over the world. Again, we will stick with this as long as it takes to be sure everyone gets what they pledged for - no matter where they are in the world!

Our final Stretch goal is a miniature and we are on the waiting list at Impact miniatures to reserve a sculptor for the project. Our slot opens in March so this stretch goal item would be available in early summer 2013. Impact will be handling the casting once the scultping is done and has worked on several successful Kickstarter projects in the past, including my very own Apes of Wrath!

We know fans all over the world want these dice as a way to show their support of FUMBBL and all the enjoyment FUMBBL and their staff have given us all over the years! Please pledge with confidence and send us any questions you may have! Thank you!
