Polyhedral Dice Coins
Coins that function as polyhedral dice. Split into even segments they have the same random probability as dice, but in coin form.
Attention Span Games has teamed up with Tailspin Games to produce the Tailespinner. A polyhedral die with the shape and weight of a quality coin.
The side with the numbers on it is the front, the other picture is the back, and it spins like a top on the little gold dot in the middle on the back.
After bringing our Prototypes of D20 Tailspinners to a number of conventions and other geeky gatherings, we have decided that the Tailspinner must be brought to the masses. So our goal is to launch a polyhedral set of high quality metal coin dice. And hopefully in the future release other designs.
In order to hit the minimum order requirements for each of the 6 designs we are aiming to do, we need to raise a minimum of $6000. This will provide us with the capitol to do a run of iron coins with an electroplated metallic finish with enamel fill on the colored sections, in each design. And if we can manage to surpass that, we have already lined up a number of add ons as thank yous to our dear supporters. Including, cases, pouches and even pins that allow you to wear your Tailspinner and still use it, because we like things to be stylish nerd cred, and still be functional.
This time around we are doing a motif that is direct and simple. Each coin will have an image of the polyhedral die it represents, in the center of a 10 point star.
Below is the image of the 6 designs we will be using. Each coin will effectively be the one shown above, but with slightly different art.
6K: Base Goal
14K: Stretch 1: Free Pin for all Backers. Pin Add on available.
21K: Leather Pouch add on available.
37K: Free Coin Tube with Hand engraved KS exclusive Thank You on it.
50K: Free Exclusive KS Backer Tailspinner to all backers that ordered at least one coin. Additional available as add ons.
Both the big and small batch perks allow you to work with our designer to design the center section of a coin in your choice of the probabilities we are producing. If you already have a logo or design you would like to use, we can put that in there. Simple color is allowed. And if you get either of these perks, we will have access to the die for a year before they get discarded. So if at a later point, you want more, we can work to make that happen.
Current Add Ons:
Any of the coins can be added on to any backing for $20. Just let us know which coin you want and we will get notes added in.
Watch case setup for your Tailspinner. Add $18 to your pledge and we will send you your Tailspinner in a pocket watch casing.
Risks and challenges
We already have the prototypes that work beautifully. The Manufacturer will be sending them straight to the Attention Span Games' shop so I will be in full control of making sure everything gets out on time for the holidays. We are launching now, so that in all hopes we have product by the end of October, and even if there are delays, that gives a buffer so that there are no disappointed gift receivers out there for the holidays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
