Dear, Team Doublesix,
Happy New Year (all you Gregorian Calendar adherents)! This is looking to be a great year for me and Doublesix dice, thanks to all you delicious backers.
$70K Stretch Goal, UNLOCKED! We just smashed the $70K mark, and today is trending to be our biggest pledge day ever! (you can track that here). How, I ask? Not sure, but I imagine it has a lot to do with your energy and sharing. Thanks so much.
CHART: Superbacker Monty Clover made this handy chart to help us keep track of all those damn stretch goals everyone is getting (Thank you, my four leaf):
Add-ons are $5 for a 6-pack of one type, and $25 for 48 (8 6-packs, your choice). Stretch Goals DO NOT apply to additional dice ordered now or later.
Remember, feel free to overpledge now, or add-on more funds and orders after the campaign ends via Backerkit.
International shipping: at the moment, for add-ons on top of your original tier: + $4 per 6-pack, + $13 for Bulk add-on (8 6-packs, so 48 dice). Maximum shipping charge to Canada is $20, and rest of the world is $24 (for orders under 4 lbs).
I am looking into cheaper ways ship outside the US, so stay tuned.
TRIPLEFOURS: As I have mentioned, I am planning on producing at least two designs (see the last update): the numeral in triangle, and a variation on the Quad (still being finalized...follow along in the comments section). There may be one or two more designs to go into a final poll, which will partly confirm if/which two designs are worth casting new molds for.
As you know, it is looking like the first game to officially feature Doublesix brand dice is Secrets of the Lost Tomb. The SotLT Kickstarter is ending on the 7th, and they are moving towards making custom-engraved Doublesixes (which means they won't necessarily be needing Standard emerald with gold Doublesixes). Incredibly, they also have a game score of 8.66/10 on their Boardgamegeek Site. Check it out, and please feel free to comment, or become a fan.
We are also in discussion with Mega Man, The Board Game (check out their Kickstarter here). I played all of these games on the Famicom as a teen (It was called Rock Man overseas, where I played it), so I am also excited about this one. The Doublesixes will look like the little rocks he shoots.
We are going into our final week! Let's see if we can hit $90K! And if we do, maybe I will add the previously teased marbleized emerald green with gold pips dice (aka SotLT dice) as the final $100K Stretch Goal! Stop the madness!
