THE PLEDGE CHART

We've had a lot of folks wanting an easy to see picture to determine their correct total pledge.   This chart should show you all the options.

THE STORY

As many a lifetime gamer, I love dice.  As a child, first being introduced to the D4 to D20 of D&D was an eye opening moment.  Years ago I found D16 that were mass produced and were a perfect fit to a board game that I was already playing.

So when I look at the D4 to D20 range, we have nice jumps of even dice however the D14 and D18 are missing.   I wanted to fix that, but did not have a spherical design for a D14 or D18 to make a great looking set of dice.  Then I came in contact with Vincent in France and he had designs for awesome looking spherical D14 and D18.   So now we had the design, now all that is left is the fairly expensive production moulding to mass produce the dice and make them affordable to the masses.  That is where the KickStarter comes in to play.   With your pledges, we can pay for enough of the production costs that we can afford to pay the remaining initial production costs.

The D14 and D18 will each be created in 8 different colors (black, white, red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple).  Below are the prototype dice (the real ones will look MUCH better).  The dice in 8 colors make up 16 of the different dice you can choose for your rewards in this KickStater.

Even Sided Dice Sets (D4 to D20)

These are the sets available at the $15 level. This includes all 10 dice in one row of the image and a 4"x6" black velour bag. PLEASE NOTE: The D16 come from a different company than the D4, D6, D8, D10, D10%, D12 and D20 so the colors will not be a full match. We are going to do our best to color match our D14 and D18 to the color sets shown but again ... we cannot promise they'll match either. So this is forewarning we'll do the best we can.

If you want to add a full set of these dice to any pledge level (including the D14 and D18), just add $11 to your pledge.

DICE FARMER GAME

Many thanks to Tailsteak at Leftoversoup.com for giving us permission to use a boxed set of his game Dice Farmer to this KickStarter.  If you have someone who is just getting into RPG gaming, this game makes a great gift to give them a game and set them up with a start at their needed dice pool at the same time.  Full rules for the game can be seen at http://www.impactminiatures.net/KickStarter/DiceFarmer_Rulesheet.pdf.   This game is available as a $45 reward or you can add it to any pledge for $45. 

BRAND NEW BUTTONMEN!

We have another great game using the D14 and D18 dice!!!

Cheapass Games today launched their KickStarter for the game Unexploded Cow ... you should definitely go there check it out at this link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cheapassgames/unexploded-cow-from-cheapass-games

Cheapass Games also makes the very fun game Buttonmen where you can get the rules from here: http://cheapass.com/freegames/buttonmen

James at Cheapass Games has worked with us for a cross-promotion between our D14/D18 and Unexploded Cow to make 2 brand new official Buttonmen with two Unexploded Cow characters and these characters use D14 and D18 dice! Its been a while since new Buttonmen came out officially from Cheapass Games and this is your first chance to get them.

These Buttonmen can be an add-on to any KickStarter pledge for THIS KickStarter of $8 or more for $3 for one button or $5 for one of each button. The buttons are high quality and are 2.25 inches in diameter.

Introducing Cheapass Games new Buttonmen (Buckley and Thaddeus from Unexploded Cow):

OTHER DICE CHOICES

In order to help make sure we reach our funding goal for the KickStarter, we are also offering 18 of the other custom dice that Impact! has created over the last 6 years.  You can select from these dice as substitutions for most of the reward levels.   Note you can add any of the 34 dice shown/discussed in this project to any reward level by increasing your pledge by $2 for each dice.

Here are the other 18 dice you can choose from for the KickStarter.  Names listed from left to right by row.

Row 1: Flaming Skull dice: Yellow, Purple, Ivory and Black

Row 2: Flaming Skull dice: Gem Red, Gem Blue, Orange + Impact! D6

Row 3: Football D6; Elfball dice; Nice/Bad Weather; Bad Weather type

Row 4: Tennis Dice: Ivory and Yellow

Row 5: Cthulhu / Necronomicon dice: Gemini Black-Green and Gemini Purple-Green

Row 6:  Cthulhu / Necronomicon dice: Gemini Green-Gold and Vortex Green

6 of the types of dice have unique symbols on all 6 sides. The below images show you the different images on all 6 sides of those dice.

Dude Dice

On July 25th, we added Dude dice to our Little Urban Acheivers miniatures KickStarter that is current running ( http://kck.st/Q8caEW ).  Since this KickStarter is all about dice we wanted to add them to this KickStarter as well for you to order if you want.  You can add any two of them to a KickStarter reward for $5.  Or if you want to use them in place of 2 dice in any normal reward than just add $1 to your pledge.

D16s?  Yes, just $1 to get these as well

We've also had some people message us about the D16 shown in the main picture at the top of the KickStarter having not seen those before.   If you'd like one or more D16s .... you can add them to your reward just by adding $1 for each D16 you want to your total pledged amount.  When we do the backer questions at the end you'll be able to tell us what colors you wanted of D16s to add to your reward shipment.

D24s, D30s, and Dice Bags?  Sure!

Working with Koplow you now have it so you can now add any one D24 or D30 to any pledge level for $2. Any set of D24 and D30 can be added to your pledge for $3.  Just want one of each of the colors of just the D24 OR the D30, add $9 to your pledge.  Want one of each of color of the D24 and D30, add $17 to your pledge level. Please note ... these D30s are "jumbo" size and are 33mm in size. Please note ... this is now the 4th manufacturer we are getting dice from for the color sets ... so the set will be the BASIC color but it will not be a fully matched set. We mentioned that before ... wanted to mention it again.

Want a special D30 version of Dice Farmer that adds in the D24 and D30 and modifies the rulesheet so that you win you you reach 3 D30s instead of 3 D20s? Pledge $62 for the game (instead of $45) and we'll add 6 D24s and 6 D30s into the game box and modify the labels and rulesheet to make a it a special D30 copy of Dice Farmer.

Want to add an extra 5"x7" black velour dice bag to your pledge, just add $3 to your pledge and we'll add on a dice bag to your reward for you.

D3s

If you'd like a D3 (the ones we are using are 16mm and are D6s numbered 1-3 twice) added to your reward, just add $1 to your pledge for any of the colors (black, white, red, blue, green or yellow) (the same of the D4 to D20 sets). 

IF you would like all 6 of the colors of the D3 just to have all the colors or say for an expanded version of the Dice Farmer game (we won't be modifying the box for this add-on), just add $3 to your pledge and you can get all 6.

GETTING THE WORD OUT

A KickStarter succeeds or fails from how much the backers spread the word about the project.   Facebook posts, Internet forum posts, Twitter shout-outs .. any and all of those are greatly appreciated and will help us reach out funding goal to have these dice made!  I will thank you in advance for helping us get the word out on these dice.
