The Project

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

In a previous project, we made dice out of Yellow Tiger's Eye:

Due to the popularity of Tiger's Eye, we're now offering Red and Blue Tiger's Eye stones in this project.  

Tiger's Eye stones have a beautiful effect when reflected in the light.  Another stone in this project that reflects in the light is Labradorite.  

Purple Wave Synthetic Turquoise and Coral Fossil round out the 5 unique stones offered in this project.

All Stones are shown below:

Synthetic Turquoise: Purple Wave

 

 Purple Wave Price Per Polyhedral Set: $40

Coral Fossil

 

 

Coral Fossil Price Per Polyhedral Set: $55

Labradorite

 

 

 Labradorite Price Per Polyhedral Set: $60

d6's with Pips

All of our gemstone dice sets are full-sized, 16mm dice.

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

We will also offer rewards for d6's with pips. Below are some examples of d6's with pips from some of our previous Kickstarters' stones.

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 in individual dice, we can offer these in the future.

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.

Will These Dice Be delivered by the Holidays?

As you can see, our expected delivery date is January 2017.  However, we are going to work as hard as possible to deliver all rewards as soon as possible.

To be safe, please assume that you will not receive your dice by the Holidays. Having that said, we think there is a possibility that we can deliver some of the rewards before the Holidays. The worst case scenario is that you and your loved ones will have some beautiful dice to look forward to bringing in the new year!

Durability and Numbering

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.

We're still working on our engraving process for 16mm sets, so these dice are still printed. We have invested in a new friction test that individually tests the durability of the numbers of every die that leaves our factory. Moreover, the durability of our numbers has increased with every production, and we had virtually all positive feedback from our last several Kickstarters!

Having this said, we do recommend rolling these 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: $25,000

Stretch Goal #2: $50,000

Stretch Goal #3: $75,000

Stretch Goal #4: $100,000

We've worked with some stone samples, and have made numerous prototypes to show some of the possible stretch goal stones:

Mahogany Obsidian-$35/set

 Strawberry Quartz-$35/set

Peach Aventurine-$35/set

 

 

Dalmatian Jasper- $45/Set

Black Lined Rhodonite- $45/Set

Snow Quartz- $45/Set

Sodalite Light- $45/Set

Green Brecciated Jasper- $45/Set

Cat's Eye: Kynite- $45/Set

 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.
