This project is about one thing…making great dice. 

We want to offer people the dice they always knew they wanted, but could never find. The project began when my roleplaying group tried to find some specialty D6’s for one of our favorite roleplaying games. After looking long and hard, and dealing with some profound disappointment, we decided to make our own.

The dice we designed are themed off of the cyberpunk genera that was popularized by authors like William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Phillip K. Dick. The dice bring in themes of bullets, drones, hacking, and even a little magic.  

These dice are not affiliated with any specific roleplaying game or game company. They are just really great six sided dice. Please use accordingly.

Rewards  

The rewards for our project are dice. Our goal is to be able to provide all five themes we designed.

Each differently themed die comes in two separate styles. One style is all one color. The other style has a hand painted red side one. This style is specifically intended for games in which rolling a one has a special meaning.  

The first style that we are offering is our bullets and dragon theme. This style will be available regardless of whether we hit any stretch goals.

In addition to receiving dice, all of our backers will also get a thank you note for supporting the project.  

Backers that get six or more dice will also receive their dice in a hard plastic case that is perfect for travel.  

Stretch Goals  

The number of dice styles we can offer depends upon the level of support we get for the project. The biggest cost in making dice is being able to scale their production. We wish we could offer every style up front. But until we have enough supporters, the cost per dice is just too high to offer multiple themes. This is where our supporters can really help the project.

The more supporters we have, the lower our fixed cost, and the more themes we can offer our backers when they choose their sets. Once unlocked, each stretch goal theme will be available in both the single color style, and the hand painted red side one style. 

Stretch Goal 1: The Hacker Dice $5,000
(Also Available as an Add-On or Substitution) 

Stretch Goal 2: The Social Network Dice $7,000 
(Also Available as an Add-On or Substitution)

Stretch Goal 3: The Drone Dice $9,000
(Also Available as an Add-On or Substitution)

Stretch Goal 4: The Magic Dice $11,000
(Also Available as an Add-On or Substitution)

Shipping  

We are set up to ship anywhere in the world. Shipping within the US is free. We do have to charge a little extra for overseas shipping.  

Manufacturing  

As independent designers, we partnered with Q-Workshop, one of the best dice manufacturing companies in the world to bring our concepts to your gaming table. 

We have the designs, the materials, and some kick butt prototypes, now all we need it you.

Add-Ons and Substitutions

In addition to our main goal of molding the black dragon dice, we will also be doing short runs of laser cut dice from all of our unmet stretch goals. All backers will be able to Add-On, or Substitute, unmet stretch goal dice through a BackKit survey at the close of the project.  

Because the unmet stretch goal dice need to be laser cut, and not molded, there will be additional costs for making them. But the good news is that backers who order our unmet stretch goal dice, will have some truly unique dice. Since only about 100 of each style of our unmet stretch goal dice will ever be made. 

The cost for Add-ons and Substitutions is as follows: 

Add-On Dice: (i.e. Pulsing up the number of dice in your reward) 

1 Black Dragon Dice (one color) $2
1 Black Dragon Dice (with a red side one) $3
6 Black Dragon Dice (one color) $11 
6 Black Dragon Dice (with a red side one) $17 

1 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (one color) $4
1 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (with a red side one) $7
6 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (one color) $22 
6 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (with a red side one) $36

Substituting Unmet Stretch Goal Dice:
(i.e. Exchanging the Black Dragon Dice that are already part of your reward, for Unmet Stretch Goal Dice, thus keeping the total number of dice in your reward the same) 

Trading up for 1 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (one color) $2
Trading up for 1 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (with a red side one) $4
Trading up for 6 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (one color) $11
Trading up for 6 Unmet Stretch Goal Dice of any Style (with a red side one) $19 

Risks and challenges

The manufacturer we are working with has an amazing track record of supporting Kick Starters. We do not foresee any problems with them. If problems do arise, the worst thing that would happen is a delay in shipping. In that case, we are committed to keeping in contact with backers and delivering everything on time. Our goal is to make sure you get the dice well before Christmas, just in case you would like to give them as a present.

There is also a risk that we will not be able to fund all of the stretch goals. Some backers may be hoping that one of our stretch goals will be met so they can get their perfect set of dice. Because of the cost associated with die molds, we really do need to fund the stretch goals before promising all of the designs will be available.

The only design challenge to date has been maximizing the level of detail on the dice to ensure their unique themes carry through. All dice have been prototyped, and only one issue remains. The figure on side five of the social networking dice prototype was not filled in due to some size issues of the image. You can see it on the graphics above. We are working with the manufacturer to make sure that the final graphic on side five of that specific die ends up looking great, and is something we can be proud to share.
