I've checked in with all the folks whose packages appeared to have some issues, but everyone seems to have received their Metaphor Dice by now (except for Jon, a former student of mine who wanted to see if the USPS would deliver his set if I stuck the address label and postage directly on the box). By all means, if I'm mistaken, and you're still waiting on your dice, reach out to me immediately (taylor "at" metaphordice "dot" com), and I will look into what is causing the delay.
As of last week Metaphor Dice is now a thing you can buy on Amazon, and they are already selling well!
As a direct result of this increased visibility on a massive platform, orders through BackerKit have dwindled to about one every other day or two. But that's still the best place to buy more than one set at a time. There are deals to be had on two, three, six, and 18 sets of dice that I haven't yet figured out how to recreate on Amazon. And shipping overseas is still easier on the BackerKit platform than on Amazon (for the time being). All this is to say that we will probably be shuttering the BackerKit platform in a few weeks. After that, the only other place to get the dice will be our website, which will be brand new and probably buggy for a while. So if you love your dice and want more, go to BackerKit now.
We will be back on Kickstarter in April of next year with a new campaign for the first Metaphor Dice Expansion Set: SEX & POLITICS (see below)! Until then, thanks for being a part of this poetic journey!
