    One set for $20

    (1W) One set (and only one set) of Metaphor Dice delivered by November 2018 to you anywhere in the world. If you want two or three sets, look at the next two tiers for those options. This set will come in a small padded mailer weighing approximately 300 grams. Shipping charges are $5 to the USA, $15 to Canada/Mexico, and $23 to the rest of the world. INTERNATIONAL BACKERS TAKE NOTE: Although the cost of shipping is surprisingly high, note that THERE IS NO INCREASE IN COST for shipping two sets (or even three)! Lastly, the value of this package is low enough that it will probably be FREE of VAT charges, but we can't make any guarantees so buyer beware! (If you do not see your location listed as an available location, contact us and we will add it).

    Early Birds for CANADA & MEXICO only!

    (NAFTA!) For our nearest neighbors, a special Early Bird arrangement: $28/set SHIPPING INCLUDED! Want two sets? Change your pledge to $56, and we will know what you want. Take note that there is a limited number of Early Bird sets available. If necessary, we can certainly recreate this type of backing level for November delivery if/when all the Early Birds are gone. Lastly, as ALL backers outside the USA should be aware, be prepared for surprise VAT charges that may (or may not) strike.
