We are launching this Kickstarter Campaign in order to do a number of things for our small business. By running a successful campaign, we would be able to mitigate our start up cost, including the cost of a kiln, and the cost of  more than 9 months of research and development. We would also be able to invest in new materials for further development of Crit Hit Ceramics Dice. Helping us run a successful campaign will make the future of our dice possible. Your help will accelerate our product tenfold, giving us the ability to get our dice in the hands of those who will use them and giving us that all important word of mouth marketing that every successful item needs.

Skeleton Set
Skeleton Set

Dice are one of the oldest gaming components known to humankind. As far back as 3000BCE, people were rolling small objects for fun.  First it was astragals, anklebones of sheep, buffalo or other animals.) Not long after, all manner of dice were being played, in all major civilizations from Mesopotamia to the Mediterranean. Dice were commonly made of bone, ivory, bronze, agate, and porcelain (a type of clay).



We at Crit Hit Ceramics harken back to an earlier age, before cellulose and molded plastic dice. We appeal to the maker in you, the lover of things unique and hand-crafted.  We have provided some facts about our dice we thought might be of interest. Consider getting a set of our hand-made dice for your tabletop. We thank you for your support of our project.

A few facts:

·MATERIAL: Crit Hit Ceramics dice are made from a durable, mid-fire white clay body.

·CONTROL:  Each die is weighed on gram scale for consistency.

·HAND-CRAFTED:  Each die is pressed, cleaned and numbered by hand.

·INTO THE FIRE:  Green (raw) Clay is fired to excess of 2200° Fahrenheit. The firing process takes approximately 12 hours.

·TIME:  Standard 7 Sets require a minimum of 3-4 man hours to complete.

·UTILITY:  Dice are durable, playable, and made to be enjoyed!

Risks and challenges

Since Crit Hit Ceramics is a two man team there could be obstacles to production due to illness but that would merely cause delays in the project. Should the campaign be overly successful, and orders exceed our expectations, the volume of dice could slow us down, however we feel we have given ourselves enough lead time to over come such a challenge. We have been testing and producing dice and have come to this point with a method and product we are proud of, we just want others to help us get out from under our overhead so we can pursue this dream.

Our kiln is new, and our materials are easily attainable, so mechanical, technical or supply oriented difficulties should not be an issue.

Thank you!
