The Project

We're Metallic Dice Games. We've run numerous Kickstarters in the past with thousands of satisfied backers.

In our last Kickstarter, we made dice working with 4 gemstones.  We used our new engraving machine to engrave the numbers.  The engraved numbers received great reviews, so we've decided to offer 4 more popular stones with engraved numbers for this Kickstarter.

16mm Full-Sized Polyhedral Sets:

Hematite

Pictures do not do these justice.  We decided not to paint the numbers- these are clean and classy.

Cat's Eye Aquamarine with Gold Numbers

 It is also difficult to capture the beauty of this stone in images.  Cat's Eye is a manmade stone with reflective properties, so these change in the light!

Lapis Lazuli with Gold Numbers

 You asked for it last project, now it is here!  Luxurious as ever.

Blue Lace Agate

d6's with Numbers

We generally sell our gemstone dice in polyhedral sets (d4, d6, d8, d10, d10%, d12, and d20).

We are also offering rewards for engraved d6's with numbers.  This will give you an opportunity to collect d6's, or to add them as an addition to your sets.

Unfortunately, we've offered other individual dice options in the past and they were not popular enough to make it worth our investment. If we see enough more demand for individual dice, we can offer these in future projects.

Combining Rewards

If you would like to pledge for multiple rewards, please simply pledge for the most expensive reward you would like, then add the extra reward amounts to your pledge (with no added shipping!). If you decide to do this, please message us right away so we can make note of your rewards.

Durability

As we've found with experience, these dice are durable for practical use. We've sampled with hundreds of stones, and only offer stones that have proven to be durable for practical rolling.

Having this said, we do recommend rolling all stone dice on padded surfaces and being careful shaking them up together during use and transportation.

Stretch Goals

The more funds we raise, the more funds we will have to reinvest into large amounts of new stones. With your help of sharing to your friends, family, and social media, we're confident that we can offer even more new stone options! With every stretch goal we hit (shown below), we will send out a survey to make 1 more stone option available.

Stretch Goal #1: $30,000

Stretch Goal #2: $55,000

Stretch Goal #3: $80,000

Attached are some images of stones that we can engrave for stretch goal options:

Rose Quartz

 Carnelian

 Ruby in Zoisite

Rainbow Fluorite

FAQ: Will these dice ship before the Holidays?  Yes!  These will be shipping by the first week of December.  This leaves a good chance that you should receive these before the Holidays, but of course we cannot control unexpected post office shipping time delays.  

Thank you for your consideration!

As a family business, we thank each and every one of you for your consideration of backing our project. With your help, we will spread new stone dice all over the world!

Risks and challenges

Timing- As I'm sure you all do as well, we hate delays. Our last two projects were completely fulfilled by our promised deadline. As we have gained experience making these stone dice, we are confident we will be able to fulfill all rewards in a timely manner.

Uncertain Demand- The most difficult part of planning for manufacturing is the uncertainty of demand. We generally have relatively accurate estimates that allow us to reserve some stone quantities in advance, but we have allotted some extra time in case there are some fluctuations in demand.

Manufacturing- Manufacturing is always a risk, but we have made gemstone dice for over a year now. Further, our customer service team will respond quickly to any quality issues that you may have. We have received great feedback from our backers in our previous Kickstarters!

Shipping- We are generally able to ship all of the dice out within a few days of them being made. With our experienced packing team, there shouldn't be any issues with shipments. If USPS loses your package, we'll replace it. If dice are damaged during shipment, we will replace the damaged dice.
