I cast bronze dice in a mini-metal foundry I set up in my garage. Our last kickstarter turned out to be so popular that we outgrew our space. Help me get a large order together so I can move to a bigger shop to make more stuff like this in the future.

Help kickstart my career in metalsmithing and receive early access to my first product lineup of cast bronze gaming dice. These parts are made in small production runs that are not available anywhere else.

Functional Prototypes

--- Engraved Polyhedral --- Valence Polyhedral --- Companion Polyhedral --- Circumscribed Polyhedral --- Flat Polyhedral --- KS Special Shapes --- KS Special Symbols --- Fudge set --- Countdown set --- Spindle Embosed --- Spindle Engraved ---

The dice pictured above match the appearance, function and manufacturing methods used in the final reward. You can check out how they are made here.

Shipping and Order Processing

I ship out of Oregon, USA via USPS with tracking. international orders are accepted. Please be aware of any duties or customs your country may have for imports from my area. I have no way of knowing this on my end.

You will be able to manage your order in the Pledge Manager software. After the campaign is completed you will receive an email with instructions on how to fill in your order.

 
 

Risks and challenges

Made-to-order backer rewards will ship as they are finished, the time frame will depend on total number of orders received. If you are expecting these dice by a specific time consider backing for the "early reward" tier, which ship out earlier but are in limited to parts made prior to this campaign launching.

For all other orders we are focusing on only the bronze dice for this campaign as compared to the last campaign. The bronze alloy is producing the best results but unfortunately is more expensive.

Once your order is made and ready to ship i'll send you an email with a picture of your actual reward. This is a good point to review and make sure everything is correct. I did this last campaign and caught some errors that we were able to resolve before shipping out. Pay special attention to your shipping information.
