THE STORY BEHIND THE DICE

Impact! Miniatures is seeking to add to their dice of unusual sides with mass production of a 13 sided die and a 15 sided die in 8 (now 9!) opaque colors.  Impact! has a lot of experience producing odd sided dice and the designs for these dice look great and have been tested to be fair despite having an odd number of sides.

Due to assistance from Andrew at the Dice Shop Online (thank you very much Andrew!), we have been able to research the shapes and receive a small batch of the D13 & D15 to test the production designs.   We are very happy with the test batch and want to get the dice into full production but really need your assistance to get the remaining production molds made and the mass production run of the dice created.

Based on successfully running 2 dice KickStarters, we had enough of the D13 and D15 made in the test batch in black and purple that we should be able to quickly ship any rewards that get just these colors of the D13 and D15 and/or our older dice after the pledge manager comes out. (ie not the other 7 colors of D13 & D15 or any of the Light Purple, Translucent Teal or Glow in the Dark dice).  PLEASE NOTE:  Glow in the Dark dice may take longer to produce and your reward could take up to September 2017 to ship your full reward (unless you include split shipping in your reward (see Split Shipping description below)).

Impact! is working to make the best sets of RPG step dice (or dice chain sets) available.  In role-playing games often as a character advances in level he gets +1 to an ability but then you need rules for a natural roll of 1 failing.   Step dice/Dice chains says the character uses the next die in the chain for the roll instead going forward which means no special rules for low rolls. (ie your Barbarian uses a D11 or D12 at level 2 for damage with his great axe instead of a D10 at level 1).   Dungeon Crawl Classics and Freeblades both use this system and we are working to provide all the dice between D3 and D20 so many more RPG games can move to these mechanics going forward.

While the dice are an odd number of sides we do our best with spending time with the geometry to ensure the die is as fair as possible despite the unusual shape.   We have had good reports from our designs for the D7, D9 and D11 which were all designed by the same person that helped us design the D13 and D15.

POINTS

Each reward level gives you points to spend so that you can get exactly the dice and dice sets in the colors you want.   You pledge for the reward level that gives you the number of points you want to spend.  Each reward level starting at Wanderer gives you more points for your dollar than the one before it.   You can add extra points to any level for $1 per a point.  Stretch Goals will add on additional points for you to use for free to many of the reward levels.

Canadian Backers receive an extra 5 points when we set up the pledge manager to offset the fact that KickStarter only let me set one rate for international shipping.

Here are all the dice and dice sets you can used to spend your reward points for this KickStarter.  (you do not need to decide what you want now or let us know what you want now ... a pledge manager will be sent so you can spend your points after the KickStarter ends).

PASSING SHOT - 9 points

An easy to learn press your luck game that matches rules from tennis (rules even to match court types (grass, clay or hard).  I've updated the rules to create more strategic making during play from the 1st edition. (10 dice, rules and 4 counter)

DICE FARMER  (fun quick game with unique shaped dice -- excellent addition and basic decision making game for children)

2 player version (25 dice) - 18 points

3 player version (37 dice) - 26 points

The Dice Farmer game is a great game to quickly play with children to work on additional skills.  You start with 3 6 sided dice and roll them.  By adding the dice together you add more dice to your pool of dice that you roll each round.  First player to reach 3 D20s wins.  The colors might change from the picture but each different die type will have its own color to help it be recognized.    Tom Vasel @ The Dice Tower did a review of the game here if you would like more information ( http://www.dicetower.com/game-video/dice-farmer-review-tom-vasel )

BUTTONMEN - 5 points

If you play Cheapass Games Buttonmen game ( http://cheapass.com/free-games/button-men/ ), I worked with James Ernest to create special buttonmen using characters from his Unexploded Cow game that would use Impact!'s special dice (the D14, D18 and then an X for our odds sides and others).   You get both buttons for 5 points ... they are high quality 2.25 inch diameter buttons.

SHIPPING

Shipping will be a flat $5 for US backers and $15 for all backers outside the US.   Impact! KickStarters are EU friendly in our shipping and are normally customs free.

SPLIT SHIPPING

Because the dice will be finished at 3 different time periods I am willing to do the work to split shipping into 2 or 3 shipments for anyone who would like to receive their dice faster.   There are 2 options

  • WAVE 1 (LIGHT PURPLE/TRANSLUCENT TEAL) SPLIT SHIPPING: 5 points to have your dice delivered to a US address as soon as possible. (10 points for Canada / 15 for International).  Delivery of the 1st dice shipment will most likely in November and rest of your dice when all available in 2017.
  • WAVE 2 (GLOW IN THE DARK) SPLIT SHIPPING: 5 points to have your dice delivered to a US address (10 points for Canada / 15 for International) for dice ready on or before May 2017 (All Light Purple and D13 or D15 not black or purple) ship as soon as they arrive ahead of any Glow in the Dark dice.

Explanation of split shipping:

  • Wave 3 will ship around August/September of 2017 ... that will be rewards with Glow in the Dark dice in them.  
  • Wave 2 will ship around May 2017 ... that will be rewards with Light Purple dice in them or with D13 or D15 in the order that are not Black or Purple.
  • Wave 1 will ship around November 2016 ... this would be rewards with just dice not found in Waves 2 and 3.

If you do not pay for split shipping ... your reward will ship at the slowest point based on the dice you have.

Example 1: I buy a 20 dice set in Orange and a 20 dice set in Glow in the Dark. If I pay for Wave 2 split shipping ... I'll get the Black set in 2016 and the Glow in the Dark set in fall 2017. If I do not pay for Split shipping I'll get them both in fall 2017.

Example 2: I get a DCC Orange set, a set of the D13s & D15 in 9 colors and a pair of Glow in the Dark 20 dice set. 

  • a) No split shipping paid for ... it all ship in fall 2017 
  • b) Wave 2 split shipping paid for ... Glow ship in fall 2017, all others ship around May 2017 
  • c) Wave 1 split shipping paid for ... DCC Orange ships in 2016, everything else ship in fall 2017 
  • d) Wave 1 and Wave 2 split shipping paid for ... this reward would ship in 3 packages - DCC Orange in 2016, D13/D15 around May 2017 and the Glow in the Dark in fall 2017

Risks and challenges

Impact! has experience making unusual sided dice. We have already spent the money on mold testing to make sure the dice can be molded. We have successfully delivered on 24 KickStarter projects of which 2 were dice KickStarters.

The only risk is if the dice are delayed in production or shipping but there should be no risk of the dice being eventually delivered.

Impact! does not provide new dice funded by KickStarter to retailers or in their online shop until all backers are shipped.
