I hope all you United States of Americans had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. I had family in town so was a little busy, but am now back to continue to help rock this Kickstarter.
1) THE GIFT to a local high school math club via Ron Larson (original patent holder): Several of you alerted me that charity and donations were forbidden by Kickstarter. Even though KS initially approved my proposal (which mentioned the gift) I wrote them and double-checked: "I mentioned wanting to give a portion to the original patent holder (patent has expired) or a charity of his choosing. Can I still give the funds to him (not a charity)?"
And they wrote back: "Thanks for writing in! What you're suggesting is explicitly prohibited by our guidelines. Projects cannot promise to donate proceeds."
Oops. Sorry about misleading you all. I thought it would be a nice gesture, but turns out it is verboten. I'll try to think of something else creative to do with the $300 I had earmarked for that cause.
2) BULK ORDERS: Some of you have requested options for more dice. I emailed KS with that, too, and this is their response: "Thanks for writing in. Our guidelines limit rewards to no more than 10 of an item, and expressly prohibit bulk rewards. We've already made an exception to allow your 12 and 50 die tiers. Please do not add any further bulk tiers."
So we will stick with 12, Random Roll (I need to check with them on this one), and 50 dice.
3) STRETCH GOALS: Yes, there will be some. I plan on soon polling you all (hopefully Tuesday) for what other colors to be adding, and thinking about an easy way to offer/give these extras to you.
4) LOGO: As promised, we are going to crowd-source and crowd-determine the logo for Doublesix Dice. We are now taking submissions via 99designs, and soon, I will be asking you all to vote on the finalists. Want to throw you hat in the ring? Submit your design here, where the Qualifying Round will last for 4 more days.
