Have a question?
Thanks so much for the raffle. It was a beautiful gesture. You really look after your backers.
Oops, I just noticed the December 1st update.
Looks like, since my order includes polyhedrals, I won't be receiving it by X-Mas.
Your last update was the 20th of November.
Please provide an updated date of delivery.
Getting concerned my set won't arrive in time for X-Mas.
How long will shipping to Europe take? Will the rewards be shipped by boat or by plane?
I am worried the tray will not make it here in time for christmas, which would be a real shame.
Just posted an update on delivery ETA!
Thanks Phil. I am planning an for update early next week with the status!
Half way through November. I'm sure I'm not the only one curious how production is going! Any updates?
I just want to say, as I can't seem to edit/delete a previous comment, that I really appreciate the speed and content of the email I received from Mark in regards to my annoyances with the survey.
I don't thank Mark for all of the beautiful options available, as it's been a nightmare trying to narrow my preferences down to just one box! So many awesome wood choices and details.
I've filled out two surveys, had PayPal take funds and have another email asking me to complete the survey! Whats going on?!
In the survey it wasn't clear whether we had the stretch goals included (pouch and cup) and I think I requested another thinking I wasn't getting one. Finally, I've been trying to private message the creator and I can't find a way how to...can't wait for this survey to be over!
If anyone has specific questions about the survey, please just send me a message rather than posting here. Much easier to answer these questions individually. Thanks!
@Scott, please send me a message and we'll work it how to complete the survey.
@Tim The survey is coming from BackerClub.
Who is the survey coming from? The update didn’t say. Thanks.
Who is the survey coming from? Thanks.
I just started the survey and have a question. I calculated my pledge amount to cover two trays, and two polyhedral sets. I do not see an option in the survey to indicate two trays, how can I do that?
@Peter, please see our most recent update.
@Mark Baker are you confident about the November delivery?
Congratulations for a great campaign. What a pity that we did not make it to the free dice bag..
Thanks heaps for the answer!
@Christopher Purpleheart is the hardest we have. Bubinga is the 2nd hardest.

Eight silver dice and Eight gold dice preferably (half and half)
Hello; saw a post earlier about wood hardness. Of the woods you're offering, which one is the hardest / has the highest janka hardness? Unfortunately, my google search is getting conflicting results to this question. Thanks in advance.
@Ryan. Yes, there will be a survey after the campaign. Yes, you can add more add-on items on the survey if you forget something here.
I did not see it mentioned anywhere, though i may very well have missed it, but i assume there will be a survey post campaign for additional add-ons?
The dice cup and bag are add-ons. But, if we reach those stretch goal numbers then everyone would get 1 for free (you could add more if you wanted).
The stretch goals state that all backers will get a leather dice bag and cup, but on the pledge calculator it makes it seem like none are included. Are the dice bag and cup add-ons if we want one?
@M, Sure you can do that.
If you pledge for, say 10 x D6 dice, do they all have to be the same color or can you get 5 x silver and 5 x gold? Also, can you pledge for a custom set of 7 polyhedral dices and have them all be D6 dice? Since one custom set of polyhedral only cost $42 vs 9 x D6 dice (7+2 D6) are $50?
@Jt We are doing one mass manufacturing run of dice after the campaign (to keep cost down). So, I can't guarantee when we'd have enough interest to do another big run. So, I'd say pledge for what you want now. :)
Hey Mark! Can I purchase more dice after the campaign if I decide I need more?
@Aaron. Great question. We have chosen wood varieties very carefully based on their hardness. The Janka scale rates wood hardness. Some common wood types most people would consider hard are walnut and oak. These have a Janka rating of 1010 and 1290. Compare this to a wood like white pine which as a rating of 420. However, with the woods we have chosen, the softest is Hickory which as a Janka rating of 1820...much harder than even walnut or oak. Some, like Bubinga (2410) and Purpleheart (2520) are nearly twice as high of a rating as oak. The exception with all of these is the Quilted Maple which is 1450 which we are paring with Marblewood (2532).
The answer to your question though is that even with carefully selecting very hard woods and engineering our dice to have rounded edges, you will still see some "character" added to your tray over time. We have rolled thousand and thousands of times (the equivalent of years worth of normal game use) and are very satisfied with the way the trays have held up. Any marks made by the dice are very minor and not noticeable unless you are really looking or it.
Of course, please never use metal dice with hard edges on the tray as that will damage it very quickly. Acrylic dice and our rounded corner steel dice will be fine and allow your tray to look good for a long time!
Hi there, how does the hardwood stand up to the dice impact? My experience with metal dice is that the impact leaves dents in wooden surfaces, even with soft edges. My dining table is certainly a testament to that!
This is based in the US. Shipping in the US is $18. For all other international shipping we are partnering with a company called GoSend. They will invoice international backers for the exact shipping and any applicable duties/country taxes after the campaign via their site. On the calculator page we have some estimated examples at the bottom of the page for shipping.
Yes, in one of our project updates we asked people to vote for gold or silver dice.
I'm confused. Is this based out of Australia? Because the shipping examples have Australia at $0. So I added nothing on for shipping?? Is this right? It didn't auto add anything either..
And why all the comments as to colour? Did I miss that being requested to be put in the comments?? Thanks.
Just adjusted my pledge

Hoping this gets more backers. Would love the option to personalize for my family. My kids love making their own board games and they would absolutely have a blast with this.
