Have you ever been to a gaming night and were afraid and ashamed to bust out your dice? Have DMs ever looked at you like you are a crazy warlock when you rolled? Thanks to Blackskull Dice you now have the chance to fix this problem!

Blackskull Dice is the result of me being that person described above. Not only did I want to have some awesome dice for our next game night but I wanted dice that no one else had. So... I made some one of a kind dice out of my exotic woods and acrylic blanks I use for other woodworking projects.

My dice are hand cut, pips are wood burned by hand, and polished right before finished with a beautiful protective clear coat.

All of our dice come in our standard 3/4 inch size. We do also offer 1 inch sizes in select materials. All reward levels are 3/4 inch dice unless you choose a 1 inch level. Dice do tend to vary in size a few millimeters due to them being handmade. Please read the reward levels. Thank you.

Get them while on Kickstarter! Not only will you be helping us jump start our business you will also be getting a great discount by choosing to back us on Kickstarter.

To sum this up.. Blackskull Dice... Handcrafted... Look Awesome... You need them... So pledge to the right ----------------------------------------------------------------------------->>

Free Shipping for US Backers!

Risks and challenges

There are several risks and challenges for this project.

-The one thing that is the biggest risk is production speed and shipping. Our dice are handmade and require a decent amount of time each to make sure they are perfect. In order to speed this up some of the funds for this project will allow for me to purchase some much needed equipment for my shop.

-Shipping: Shipping will be very organized and timely. The worst thing ever is waiting for a project to complete production and waiting forever to get your dice. There will be none of that here. All orders from this Kickstarter are guaranteed for Christmas at the latest!
