About

Hi Planeswalker!

Are you an MTG enthousiast who loves foiling out their decks and playing on fancy playmats? Then you have come to the right place!

For ages the only bling available for MTG players were their foil cards, sleeves (no, anime sleeves don't count) and playmats. But when it comes to spindown dice we noticed that the choices are limited to the same old uninspired plastic dice that have been available for years! (Yikes!)

That time will now come to end! We have founded Eldersteel to create a series of D20 spindown lifecounter dice. Who knew getting bolted to death could be so satisfying!

Just awesome full metal color coated dice.  The dice feature the exact same spindown pattern experience as you are used to with the old-fashioned plastic dice. From 20 to 1 without ever accidentally setting your life total higher than it should be, and getting accused of being a cheater. Below you will find the characteristics of our dice.

  • Full Metal: Our dice are made of color coated, metal plated solid zinc alloy. 
  • Weight: 28 grams 
  • Diameter: 20mm flat to flat, 25mm point to point

DISCLAIMER: You probably shouldn't eat these. They're a bit heavy on the stomach...

We have a total of 8 different combinations available.  (Below pictures are actual photos of the product!)

Jet Copper
Jet Steel
Sapphire Copper

We are working together with a professional company that has a huge amount of experience manufacturing these kind of items. Together we've created a custom cast to forge the dice. All the pictures you see on this page are real pictures of the finished product. 

Estimated production time is 2 months. When finished, the dice will distributed from the Netherlands where your order will be collected and delivered to you directly. We personally have a background in logistics and manufacturing, so there should be no surprises there.  When the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will send you a personal survey to select your desired dice combinations. As soon as all the results are in, we will start manufacturing your orders! 

In order to keep shipping costs as low as possible we will ship your order in a bubble envelope via regular letter post. This means there will be no way to track your shipment. But don't worry the risk is on us! Estimated delivery time will be anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. Keep in mind that when backing from outside the EU there could be extra customs charges and delays!

All together, we estimate to get the dice to you by April 2020. This is a safe estimate and we will naturally keep everyone updated about the process. (Kickstarter progress, sending out surveys, manufacturing, QC, gathering your orders and shipment)

Normally you would see an extra rewards section here, however we don't believe in expensive additional traits. We want to put all our efforts into making your Spindown Dice and getting them to you as fast and efficient as possible!

Don't worry! we have plenty of ideas for awesome game related stuff that we hope to present to you in the near future! 

Risks and challenges

We have tried minimizing risks for backers as much as we possibly can. The investment for the cast and finished production samples have already been made! This to ensure there would be no surprises during the manufacturing process. But if anything unexpected were to come up, we will ensure you are notified about potential delays.
