Rolling Dice Has Never Felt So Good
The first thing you'll notice when you roll a pair of SnapDice in our tray is the satisfying "SNAP" sound of the steel dice tumbling across the exotic hardwood surface and snapping into place over the magnets. This is unlike any dice tray you've ever tried. It is an experience you don't want to miss.

Watch Real People React
Here is how people responded the first time they threw the steel dice into our SnapDice tray:
“Woah…woah…woah…okay, that’s cool. I like that!”
“Oh, that’s really fun! ”
“That’s pretty cool…That’s SUPER cool!”
“That’s way cool!”
“Oh, wow! That’s really cool!” “What!?!”
Precision Machined, Perfectly Balanced
The 14mm steel dice are absolutely beautiful. They are precision machined, then nickel plated with sharply contrasting pips. The steel gives them a solid feel in your hand. But, they aren't just beautiful to look at and great to hold. SnapDice are carefully engineered to keep the center of gravity within .001mm of center. The pips are each machined at different depths so that the result is a perfectly balanced dice with completely random rolling results. For those of you who are self proclaimed nerds, below is the math behind this to ensure the center of gravity is in the dead center of the dice:
D = X - sqrt((Q^2 - 2*Q*X)*Z*N + X^2*N^2)/N where X is half of the dice width, D is the depth of the dependent holes (which are to be optimized), Q is the independent hole depth, Z is the number of independent holes on the dice & N the number of dependent holes on the dice.
Choose from 8 unique wood types for your SnapDice rolling tray:
Level 1 Wood Choice
Level 2 Wood Choices
Level 3 Wood Choices
Level 4 Wood Choice
Level 5 Wood Choice
Each SnapDice rolling tray comes with 2 precision machined steel dice. You can choose the color as antique silver or antique gold. Additional dice may also be purchased with your tray (see the Pledge Calculator).
We are also offering full polyhedral sets in antique bronze or antique silver. A complete polyhedral sets include 7 dice: D4, D6, D8, D10, D10%, D12 & D20.
Our polyhedral dice are probably the most satisfying polyhedrals you've ever tossed. These dice use numerals rather than pips. AND, even with the numerals they are still perfectly balanced! The solid roll of the steel and the snap to the board are enough to turn heads at your next game. Click on any of these CAD pictures below to see a full 3D view of each of the dice.

Dice Cups & Pouches
Want a premium leather dice rolling cup with the SnapDice logo? Or how about a soft leather drawstring dice pouch with the SnapDice logo debossed into the leather? Each dice pouch can comfortably hold 6 dice. You can add these to your pledge total (see the Pledge Calculator).
Wood Inlay or Dovetail Upgrades
Want to make your tray stand out even more? You can add a beautiful real wood inlay or a custom dovetail to the outside of your tray. The intricacy of the design of these add a nice contrast and will set apart your tray as unique. You can add this upgrade option to your pledge (see the Pledge Calculator).
The standard SnapDice tray is 7 inches wide by 10 inches long. You can upgrade the size of your SnapDice tray to 8 inches x 12 inches ($20) or to a full 12 inch by 12 inch square ($60). The 12 x 12 tray comes with a turntable so it can remain stationary on the table and be rotated and accessed by all players easily.
You can use your acrylic dice or other metal dice (no sharp edges) with your SnapDice tray. Wile these dice won't stick to the magnets, they will still look great being rolled in your exotic wood tray! For example, use Halfsies dice or other acrylic dice:

Risks and challenges
For the dice and magnets we have done our research on sourcing materials, have made inspections of samples for the highest quality, produced our prototypes and have already setup supply chains.
For some of the exotic hardwoods they can be hard to source. However, we've got solid local supply channels lined up for these so we won't be caught with any surprises.
In terms of delivering on time, we expect a huge demand for the SnapDice trays. So we have intentionally scheduled out the delivery groups of delivery month batches to ensure we can deliver all rewards on time. If we can deliver early, we will!
We are doing all of the wood working here locally in own shop so we don't anticipate any surprises with the actual production. We are excited to see this project become a reality and get these amazing trays into your hands!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
