Dear Team Doublesix,
There has been some confusion about overpledging and add-ons, so I will try to be more clear.
Now AND Later: Kickstarter only lets you indicate one tier with your pledge, but you can still overpledge for additional dice now. Once the campaign ends, the amount you overpledged will be converted into credit. I will be using Backerkit post-campaign to manage orders, credits, and add-ons.
You don't HAVE to overpledge now: can also wait until AFTER the campaign ends to add-on more dice via Backerkit (you will have to enter your credit card again).
There are NO Stretch Goal Bonus dice added to over-pledges and add-ons. There is only one set of Stretch Goal Bonuses awarded to each backer account.
Add-ons: will be in packs of 6, for $5 each. You can order packs of the various colors:
- Ivory and black
- Black and white
- Black and red
- Black and KS Green (will not be available after this Kickstarter)
- Red and white
- Red and black
- Blue and white
There will also be 6-dice packs of FUDGE dice, and Triplefours (final colors and designs TBD). I know FUDGE dice are typically used in sets of 4, so look at it as getting 2 extra dice (packs of 6 will help streamline logistics and fulfillment, as it will be done in China for 2.5 cents a pack).
There will also be an add-on Bulk order of $25 for 48 dice (of one type), as well as a combo pack, which will include:
- 12 Red with white
- 6 Red with black
- 12 Black with white
- 6 Black with red
- 6 Black with green
- 6 Blue with white
FUDGE: these will be easy to design, with simple + and - and blank faces. Colors will be voted on. I have reached out to Fred Hicks of Evil Hat to see if we can partner up (which could mean these could be called FATE dice).
TRIPLEFOURS: We are still exploring design options. I want them to look different from both the Standard Doublesix pip arrangement, and your typical d12 with numerals, so I prefer to avoid both pips and plain numerals.
Please share your ideas on what design we could use to make it quick and easy to read and understand, and different from 66s and d12s.
My current favorite is:
The current fan favorite seems to be this one below. My concern about it is that triangles are 3-sided (not 4), and that triangles on each face will be too busy, with the top tip pointing in many different directions.
I am still wanting the single pip (just the single pip, not the others) to be a hexagon on the Standard Doublesix. It will be barely perceptible, but a cool little easter-egg for those in the know. I will run a poll to see if you overturn me. It will look something like this:
Thanks for Micheal for all these images.
All: please share your ideas, and we will eventually have another poll.
