Have a question?
Peeking in out of curiosity. I still love the dice, and feel I owe an updated review video for you! I wonder if I can borrow the production equipment from work...I'll message you if I manage to get something put together.
Checking back in for 2017..
@Andre: awesome to hear that you got all your players to switch over! Thanks for the support and sneezing.
@Ryan: I really hope to get that last update out soon, to close the loop, update and thank you guys, and eventually clear the deck for the next KS I am itching to run.
@Jazzy: thanks! I hope it went well, and I hope you pointed out the dice named after you :)
@Barry: i love hearing that they were used in math class! Have you checked out https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1820628033/playsmart-dice… (perfect for math class)?
@Impact: sorry...I was MIA, for many reasons. I saw your emails and have replied, and plan to do a much better job in 2017.
Has Matt gone fully MIA? I've tried contacting him 4 different ways and been unable to reach him.
kids in my maths class loved the dice, we did some experimental probability using them and they were all asking me where I got them!
I will be pushing DoubleSix at our local convention http://xenocon.weebly.com/ XenoCon in early October in Eastern Iowa. Still have a decent variety to sell of both pipped and others. Everyone loves the dice!
So....final update and next project announcement?
Hi, I just wanted to let you know "Oh Great Dice The Galaxy", trekkies will recognize the quote, that I have played with the dice and since then all my rpg players have switched to double six.
It is great not to have to arbitrate disputes around throws. It simplifies my life as a Game Master during battle resolution.
@Kevin: i have lost lots of steam, but still not giving up on the Bulk backers map. Next on my list, for the final update.
@Chris L: yes, that was an awesome video, and caused a huge spike!
@Chris H, Kenn: You are welcome! and Thank YOU for ordering, sharing, and using.
@Justin: Not sure I got robbed, but I did get scolded.
@Rick: yeah, Dungeon Crate reached out to me and we struck a deal. Fun partnership.
@Jazzy: thanks for the link, and congrats on making your goal! I hope the pledges keep coming in. Still thinking about the next KS, but still dragging my feet. Hope to pick up momentum soon. Gotta wrap this one up first (still one update pending).
@Vasii: thanks for your incredible patience.
@Jesse: lets talk...
Hey Matt and Team DoubleSix, as requested we finally have our next KS going: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/273403520/diabolique-engines-customized-poker-playing-cards
Matt, how are you doing on your next Kickstarter?
My buddy got a Trip 4 in his Dungeon Crate. Congrats!
Your dice just helped me win a huge Warhammer 40K event this weekend. Thank you bud.
I LOVE my dice! :D
Finaly, I've got my dices! :)
2013 - 2016 it's not a long way ... :)
Thanks averyone for the job.
I hope you both also sent him a message via kickstarter. He probably doesn't check these comments anymore.
I never received my dice either
Am I the only one who didn't receive my dices?
I'm confused...didn't you try to donate some funds to a school and Kickstarter busted you for it? There's a project going on called "Masmorra" and they have an Addon where they are donating all funds from it to a youtuber (of all things). I asked KS about it and they said the project creator can do whatever they want with their money. WTH? Their rules clearly state no donation or charity fundraising.
YOU GOT ROBBED!
Looks like Belarus is out of Earth...
No dices, no info, no answers...
Thanks Chris for the youtube link. I saw only one critical review and for the life of me it must be by someone who enjoys cheating at dice based on his comment that dice should roll less not more. In fact, if you search on "how to cheat at dice" you will find a number of short clips on cheating. (Caution: the one by Komiinc is loaded with about a dozen F-bombs). My point in all this is that the double six dice pretty much eliminate any chance of cheating by anyone. After watching the other youtube vids I am going to insist that anyone who rolls old fashion cubes has to use a dice tower, lol.
Thanks for the dice! I got them and gave most of the white ones to my gaming friends and kept all the colored ones! We use them! Thanks for completing your project!
Matt, If you suddenly see an influx of orders, then you can thank Chaz Marler, cause he just put up a fun video reviewing your dice:
Well, out of the 100+ dice I bought I'm down to 12. I actually gave away the rest to friends & gamers. Actually wish I had more white ones to give away. I'll be attending Owl Con in a week and a half and could have handed them out there.
Hey Matt, have you figured out a good way to list all those Bulk order backers favorite websites?
Back from a small break and trying to get the online store up and running. Still planning on the final Kickstarter Update in the next several weeks.
@Asher, Vasili: that sucks...once it gets handed over to the local carrier, tracking stops. If it doesn't turn up, let me know, and I will send replacements.
@Matthew, Paul, Doug, Francisco, Dennis: thanks for the love!
@Dennis: I actually call them DD6, which makes more sense (D6 is your typical old-school die, and these are D as in Double D6s).
@John: sorry about that (thanks 4ier).
I'm pretty sure we've called them DD6 in the comments here, too. No worries. :)
Sorry ment D6D, for some reason I call them DD6 in my head.
It was great to see DD6 on Dice tower! Thanks for sharing that with us @Chris Larsson and @Christian A. I have to say now that I have my dice in hand I can't stop touching them! They never fail to get a reaction when I show them off on game nights, or when I am passing down time at work with the few I tend to have in my pocket. I have to say that, of all the 60(ish) table top/rpg game and accessories, including other dice, I have backed, these are what I have gotten attached to and I love it!
You will need to finalize the survey to get rid of the reminder.
It was intended to make sure everyone got the message to complete the Backerkit survey, since update emails/notifications can be disabled.
Here to say that i got hold of my bags of dice today. Really happy about the product. Also, congratulations on a project well fullfilled. If you let me a suggestion, once the tides are down, you should gather your experiences and write up a Kickstarter Adventurer's Handbook or something. ;) Regards from Perú.
The Reward Survey said I did not need to complete the survey, and I have received my dice. Do I actually need to complete the survey to remove the reminder banner for it, or is there another way to disable that banner in kickstarter?
New Year passed...
still nothing in Belarus :(
Happy New Year Matt and everyone who was part of this KS!
Matt you ran the most transparent and best communicated KS of 2015. You are the champion sir!
All the best.
Just dropping by to wish everyone happy holidays and I saw @Barry morgan's comment. I would like to echo his sentiments. In many ways this has been the model KS project in that the journey has been worth the entry fee and the destination is just the icing on the cake for me. It's been a hoot but as Barry says, maybe a bit more stress free next time wouldn't bee a bad idea.
So thanks again to Matt and to all my fellow backers on Doublesix Dice.
They show up at about 9:30 in the video.
Here's a link to the video:
Doublesix Dice is featured in episode 107 of the Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast. Congratulations!
I still haven't received mine, even though they arrived in the country 26 days ago. Not sure what to do... tried to email but it bounced as my email address being unrecognised by your server... so any ideas what to do? Asendia only tracks until it lands in the country, then it's "talk to the courier".
Got my replacement dice here in Japan the other day! They look great. Thanks, Matt! The triplefours are really nice!
@James: Glad you got em! Sorry about the extra charge!
@Nicholas, Robert, David: Thanks for the kind words!
@Dennis: That was awesome! Thanks much. I will post in the final update.
@Jazzy: good luck! thanks for the reminder.
@Chris and Vasili: please check your messages.
@Barry: thanks much for the praise :) and yes, looking forward to making things with less stress.
I'm quick enough to have a moan when I feel its needed so I also need to praise when its due. I received my dice a while back and they are great. this project took much longer than originally anticipated but Matt was on point on keeping us updated with his latest and best information on a timely basis - he showed empathy and respect for us as backers and his regualr updates outlining his trials and tribulations meant I had none of the frustrations I have experienced with other bigger organisations campaigns. any other shadows of brimstone backers on here?
I hope you are now able to leverage what you've learnt and make some sensible stress free money next time round....
I'm still waiting for my dice.
Still waiting in Belarus. Maybe someone already received dices?
Get it. in Czech
I did some 3d art for this... and did the card design and concept art. Might want to check it out its fun for the whole family and up to 8 players.
@Matt: I sent you some design by gmail... did you get them?
For anyone that wants to hear a fat guy drone on, I posted a video about the D6 and my thoughts. I've never done a youtube video before, and am sorry for everything. Quality, non scripted rambling, having to look at at my face, everything. Hope this helps Matt
The dice arrived in Germany this week - they are wonderful!
Got my dice a few days ago and gave them a look over. About 1/3rd had either drilling or pip painting blemishes but really nothing bad at all. They feel great to roll and I love the variety of colours. Thanks man!
I received my set(s) a few weeks ago and just wanted to comment that I love them. Can't wait to make an excuse to play with them. :)
I know there were a lot of problems with manufacturers, but from one backer who's usually just a quiet guy sitting back and waiting, thank you for producing a high quality product. To me, this was one of those projects that Kickstarter was made for and I do love the dice. Thank you!
Yay, mine have arrived! They were indeed being held hostage by customs! :(
I knew I was close to the threshold but I was close enough that a change in the GBP-USD rate took me £0.90 over the limit, resulting in a £2.10 charge and an £8 admin fee! Arrgh.
Ahh well, I love the dice and am dishing some out instead of Christmas cards :)
Continued thanks for all the feedback!
@Martin: wow! That is a lot. And sorry about the missing Fudge! Please let me know if I can refund you for it, or give you a big discount code or something.
And yes, I still plan on getting the list and map of Bulk backer up eventually.
@Kevin: glad you like them. And thanks for letting me know about the 404! Fixed now.
@Matthew: sorry about that. I just messaged you.
Mine arrived today (UK), really pleased, better than I expected :) Six of them have already been appropriated by my wife :)
Took a while, but well worth the wait, thank you - very happy!
