      How about them pencil dice? There's been enough time to grow the trees, cut them down, have them hand-carved by the indigenous people of wherever and delivered one by one by legless couriers to each backer. Gosh. I'm beginning to think this kickstarter might have been a big sham to just steal people's money with no intent on ever delivering anything.

      Cheers for the heads up. Noticed he had put up a post regarding a pallet of stuff he is doing cheap. Had to ask if there were any Pencil Dice in there :-)

    3. Jolly Blackburn on July 24, 2017

      Ken bought a game store. He might be too busy for such trivial stuff as pencils.

      A year ago we were complaining about how things were supposed to have been done a year before that and were told we'd have to wait another year. It's July 2017 now, that time that felt so very far away back in 2016, and by which we presumably were to have forgotten all about this.

      Maybe we should lower our expectations a little. Instead of demanding the product, we can demand, and I mean *DEMAND* an update with some vague wording and a meaningless promise of a new delivery date. And we deserve one now.

    8. Jerry Behrendt on July 12, 2017

      Are the pencils at your warehouse yet? They must be arriving pretty soon if you're going to have them delivered in August like you promised a year ago. How about some pictures of the stock?

      Unless of course the whole "August 2017" was a total lie from the beginning.

      any pincels yet? I understand it takes many months to create a really good poncil..

    10. Jason Zajdel on June 29, 2017

      Do you think Ken can ever make another KSer? I mean, Pencil Dice was used to help fund a previous project...

      where are the PHOTOS?

    12. Rastl on June 19, 2017

      @Geoffrey - to be fair it isn't summer until Wednesday so he's got 3 months after that to meet his promised deadline. /s

    13. Jolly Blackburn on June 14, 2017

      Geoffrey latest on Ken is he's been laying down tracks as to why he won't deliver on his promise of fulfillment in August. No surprise there.

      So it is the summer of 2017 and almost a year since the last update. Has there been ANY movement in getting these out to backers?

      where are the photos of production?

    17. Jolly Blackburn on June 4, 2017

      One of the easiest dirt simple to fulfill kickstarters ever - and nobody got squat (except excuses). Collect the money, pay the printer and ship the product. What happened here was criminal IMO.

    20. William Baker on May 17, 2017

      I have moved since I pledged. Please be sure to contact me before you send out my dice/pencils.

    21. Shea Antoinette on May 9, 2017

      came to see if i managed to miss an update on these... nope... last one is still from july of last year... what a surprise....

    22. Jolly Blackburn on April 23, 2017

      Hey won't be long now. Ken's last update here was

      "Dear Backers.

      We have set a new release date for Summer, 2017. Of course we hope to get your project to you way before that date, but would rater surprise you then disappoint you again.

      Can't wait to get my pencil.

      Deltah on April 16, 2017

      Sigh. I suppose I should have clairified my tone. I regret the wording of my previous comment. It's not so much that I genuinely think it will be fulfilled any time soon (if at all), it's just that I am exhausted by this whole thing, and maybe I'm too polite with how I chose to express that. Rather than describing how extremely frustrated I am, I instead expressed how WONDERFUL it would be if Ken was to fulfil his obligations. But I assure you, the polite hints that I am dropping come from a place of major disappointment.

    24. Geist de la Muerte Gatito
      on April 15, 2017

      @Deltah: you seriously think that Ken is even interested after all this time to make good on this campaign? How long until you realize that this will never get fulfilled? 5 years? 10 years? 20?

      Deltah on April 12, 2017

      After two years, it's likely that the crew may have to eat the pencils to survive the trip! But in all seriousness, Ken, we're counting on you to make good on your promises and prove our concerns wrong.

    26. Jolly Blackburn on April 12, 2017

      Ken how is that ship doing? Has it crossed the Pacific yet? I really hope the crew brought a lot of provisions. I mean, hell — they set sail two years ago with those darn pencils.

    27. Geist de la Muerte Gatito
      on April 8, 2017

      Wow. I send Ken one comment on the BossDiva's FB page and he blocks me! The wanker.

      Not all that surprised really. I might just make up a new profile and post directly to his page.

      listen, he wants to be accurate and thorough in his work. don't bother him. you might piss him off.

      The rapid pace of updates and information here from Ken Whitman is blinding.

      that's what I love about games. they really help with logistics and planning for the future..

    31. Chris Sanderson on February 21, 2017

      @Pat Fuge - Pencils are never coming, just search for Ken Whitman on google to get an idea of the scale of the frauds (plural) he has been perpetrating.

    32. Pat Fuge on February 19, 2017

      Well, we are nearing the end of year 2 waiting patiently for our pencils.

      Any word as to where the money we sent for these went and why the factory wasn't paid? We have contacted them a few times and their response has been we are waiting for the payment to produce these.

      Ken? is there any reason for us to believe that these will still be delivered?
      A simple honest yes or no would be appreciated. No BS.
      A "I spent the money on makeup and acting lessons would be fine". Just let us close the books.

    33. Chris Sanderson on February 17, 2017

      August 2017...are you sure Ken Whitman didn't mean 2117? Long ago gave up believing this thief will ever deliver on this project, he's a liar a thief and a scum bag and I welcome any desire he has to threaten me with jail time.

      FYI this production company is looking to press charges against Ken Whitman. They are looking for other 'victims' who are interested in the same thing. Feel free to contact them.…

    36. Jerry Behrendt on February 6, 2017

      Ken just reiterated the August 2017 delivery date to me in a Facebook message. (after he contacted me to threaten me with jail time for a "federal crime" because I sad something snarky about him on the internet) I'm sure that means that everything is on track and that we'll all be deluged with more pencil dice than we know what to do with come August. I'm marking my calendar now.

      @ Matt Voss I would support your campaign.

    38. Alex Starcrash on January 23, 2017

      Loving these comments on the ship...which is now a ghost ship filled with containers of Pencil Dice.

    39. Rastl on January 20, 2017

      Yay! Only 6 months before he signs on and gives us another estimated ship date!

    40. Shea Antoinette on January 6, 2017

      That ship must have taken the scenic route...

    41. Michael Sprague
      on January 5, 2017

      Maybe the ship wasn't coming from China, instead, it was a ship heading TO China, with Ken on it....

      @Matt Voss: Count me in.

    43. Geist de la Muerte Gatito
      on January 4, 2017

      @Jimmy Hudson: We are never going to get the pencil dice. The ship that left China disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle and hasn't been seen since.

    44. Jolly Blackburn on January 3, 2017

      So has that ship that Ken claimed left China in May, 2015 been spotted yet? Should we organize a search party?

      Just checking in again to see where we are with this project :(

    46. Michael Sprague
      on December 17, 2016

      Been a while since I checked in to see if this joke ever got funny.... It hasn't....

      I'm a bit confused over this second campaign - are you suggesting we give you more money to get what we already threw our money away on???? I wouldn't touch it.... These pencils would not be worth paying twice for them....

      Sorry, it's not that I wouldn't trust someone else to do it - but I don't have money to throw away - Ken robbed me and my son, has no remorse over it..... Not sure how he sleeps, must feel real good about himself.
