Frequently Asked Questions
Some of you have been asking about whether or not the dice are well balanced. I'm going to be perfectly candid here, since I don't want anyone buying a product that they won't end up being happy with...
DICE OF ROLLING ARE NOT PRECISION GAMING DICE.
Opaque dice are almost never perfectly balanced, and ours are no exception. The balance on them is mediocre at best.
Dice of Rolling are trying to solve a usability problem while offering great value. In our opinion, making your d20 roll a fraction of a percent more evenly isn't very important compared to making sure you roll the right dice in the first place. And we don't want to double the price of the set in order to solve a problem that we personally do not think is a big deal. If perfect dice balance is important to you, we respect that; but our product isn't for you. Please find some other product that you will be happier with.
Alternate solution: I think most people only care about the balance of their d20s. So if you already have a couple of perfectly balanced d20s, you could just use your own d20s in place of the included ones. Most of the value of Dice of Rolling is in the other dice anyway.Last updated:
The bad news:
We aren't offering international fulfillment for this project. We realize most projects offer it, but behind the scenes it often becomes problematic. International backers usually pay $35 for shipping, and can also get hit with outrageous duties, taxes, and import fees. For a $100 board game this may be acceptable, but for a $20 dice set it just doesn't make sense.
The good news:
After the Kickstarter is over, we can use Amazon's global export service to get the product to you for a fraction of the normal international shipping cost. Unfortunately, this service only works for orders placed directly on Amazon's website, so it's no good for fulfilling Kickstarter pledges. This means Team USA is going to have to carry the Kickstarter, but it'll be good for everyone in the long run. Focusing on US fulfillment first means fewer distractions and delays for US backers, and it will ultimately save international customers a ton of money on shipping. So if you're international and you want our dice, please pledge $1 so that you get the project updates. We'll let you know when international fulfillment becomes available. We’ll make sure you get a chance to order Dice of Rolling before the price goes up to $25.Last updated:
Yes, Dice of Rolling will cost $25 after the Kickstarter and preorders are over (preorders will cost $24). However, we’ll make sure to give our international $1 backers an opportunity to order at the original Kickstarter price.Last updated:
We’ve designed one set of Dice of Rolling to cover the majority of spells and abilities in the game, but a there are a few that still use more dice. If you really want to be able to roll the full amount of dice for Meteor Swarm and other crazy spells and abilities, we have an easy solution: just buy two sets and double them up. It's still possible to create fringe cases that might use more dice, but practically speaking this will cover you for just about anything. And yes, we've designed the bag with enough room to hold two full sets.Last updated:
Classes that are able to cast spells will get the most use out of Dice of Rolling. If you only ever play a Barbarian, you'll do just fine with a regular set of dice. Some classes that don't cast spells can still benefit to a limited degree—Rogues in particular due to their Sneak Attack requiring a lot of d6 at higher levels. New players will also benefit regardless of their class, due to all the dice being color-coded.Last updated:
