We're Metallic Dice Games. We've had several successful gemstone dice Kickstarters in the past that have received great reviews, but we've only made polyhedral dice sets in the past.
This project is to bring some heft to your gaming tables, while keeping the beauty of the natural gemstones. At 35mm, these d20's are much larger then our previous full-sized 16mm sets. They are also now engraved!
The majority of the funds raised will be contributed to our expensive new engraving machine that will create quality engraved numbers!
Note: All of these dice are made with natural gemstones, unless they are labeled "synthetic." Synthetic stones are manmade stones with the same properties as their natural stones, and still hand carved. Unfortunately, there was a typo in the rewards descriptions that labeled some rewards as "Mega Acrylic d20's." None of these dice are acrylic- we must have had Mega Acrylic d20's on our minds as we released some Mega Acrylic dice last month.
We've decided to start with some of the most popular stones from our previous Kickstarters.
First Tier Stones:
Synthetic Blue Turquoise
Second Tier Stones:
Luxury Tier Stones:
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.
We would love to work with as many of these beautiful stones as possible. With your help, we can unlock more of your favorite stones!
Stretch Goal #1: $17,000
Stretch Goal #2: $27,000

Cat's Eye: Frosted Blue, Grey, Mint Green, Pink, or Aquamarine
Luxury Tier Stretch Goal Stones:

Thank you for your consideration!
Please back with confidence, as we have hundreds of satisfied backers to attest to the quality of our stone dice. As a family business, we thank you for helping us make new dice available to the gaming world. I look forward to communicating with all of you throughout the project!
Risks and challenges
Timing- As I'm sure you all do as well, we hate delays. Our last three 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 and a half 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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
