In the seaside pubs of Innsmouth they play a game of chance and fortune called Dagon's Bones. It's a dice game that requires both luck and daring and maybe a small blessing from the Elder Gods.

Originally carved from the skeletons of the greatest of oceanic leviathans, original copies of Dagon's Bones are priceless relics that are rarely seen outside of Innsmouth. But thanks to the brave dilettantes of Utility Games, there is now an affordable version of this eldritch entertainment that you can play with your family and friends.

Included with each game are three dice with unique combinations of Innsmouth inspired symbols and 25 plastic replica coins from The Marsh Refinery, all packaged in a sturdy storage tube.

The dice are being produced by Q Workshop and feature their fine engraving and high quality decoration.

Dagon's Bones can be taught in minutes and makes a great warm-up for Game Nights or as a fun mini-game in Lovecraft-themed RPGs.

Will you steal from the other players, rob Cthulhu himself, or be granted, however fleetingly, Dagon's blessings? Roll the Bones...and pray.

Shipping for each backer will be determined after the campaign has ended and will be added to the bid amount. We will always strive to find the lowest cost shipping solution possible.

Risks and challenges

The three creators, combined, have over 80 years gaming experience, have backed 115+ Kickstarters, and launched four successful Kickstarters.

In addition, we already have dice in hand, and have identified vendors for the coins, packaging and print portions.

Since this is our first Kickstarter working together as Utility Games, we are keeping it simple and easy to fulfill. So no stretch goals and only one reward level.

All Kickstarters will face challenges but we believe that by keeping things simple, we can fulfill this project effectively and in a timely manner.
