Frequently Asked Questions
You can add any device you wish to your reward via option "Manage your pledge" by adjusting the sum of pledge in your reward tier.
To do this, simply add the cost of the device to the cost of devices in your pledge with additional costs for shipping fee for the additional device/devices you might choose. You can indicate all the devices you pledged for in the survey after the campaign in the Kickstarter questionnaire.
Please notice that the shipping cost will vary depending on the add-ons you add. To find out the shipping fee, please use the online Ugears Calculator or sum up the weight of the models in your pledge, including add-ons, and find the corresponding value in the “Shipping fee” table in the Campaign section of the project.
To make the math easier you can use the Ugears online calculator that we created for this campaign. The Ugears calculator link is placed above and under “The Shipping Fee” table in the Campaign section the project

The Algorithm is as follows:
Step 1 from 3. Select your reward tier (for example, the Dice Tower)
Step 2 from 3. Select your Add-Ons (the Deck Box)
Step 3 from 3. Select your country or region
and you can see the models you have chosen (the reward = the Dice Tower and the add-on = the Deck Box)
Amount for your pledge (cost of two devices)
Shipping fee for the Dice Tower and the the Deck Box.
and Total sum of pledge (inc. shipping fee) == X
Step 4. Final. In your pledge "the Dice Tower" you can see the cost of the Dice Tower reward and the shipping fee for the Dice Tower model for your country and the total sum of your pledge. == Y
Press button " Manage your pledge" at the upper part of the project page -->Press a button " Change your pledge" and simply adjust the sum of your pledge so that X (got with online Calculator) =Y (inc. shipping fee)
You can use this algorithm for any combination of devices you might choose.Last updated:

Many of you would like to customize your Ugears devices for tabletop games: paint or even to put a finish on it.
The Ugears devices are made of natural high grade three-layered plywood boards which are already polished with #100 abrasive paper. It is important to take into account that coloring will impede the mobility of the movable details – so we recommend to avoid coloring moving parts.
Basically you can apply everything (stain, lacquer, paint...) except wood veneer. We recommend to put a finish/paint on the Ugears devices after the assembly. Even in the very beginning of the assembly you will have left-over parts - so you can test the color/type of wood stain on it and choose the best coloring option. Also you can paint Ugears models.
We recommend to use watercolor paints, gouache or wood stain.Last updated:
