      It has been years now. I still want my pencils, but I have moved and don't know how to update my address in your records. I would ask for a refund, but the card I used is no longer active. Help us out here, man. We gave you money. If it isn't going to happen, give it back.

      38,161 dollars in the wind. I thought maybe i missed something- looks like this was a total scam.

      Came to check on this.. Perhaps I missed an update or something... Nope...

      I wonder if I went to the actually address listed on his website, would he refund the $5 I spent on this campaign?

      I suspect my dice pencils, carefully crafted by the indigenous people of wherever, have been lost in transit. Surely, they have been sent by now, as this was Ken's promise, wasn't it? Surely, Ken did not outright lie and deceive us, right? Surely he has a conscious and wants to do the right thing by providing the product backers paid to have made and delivered. Surely.

      "Q. Will we actually see a finished project.
      A. Yes."

      Who'd have thought that making a few pencils would be so difficult...

      "Be respectful and considerate." Why? No one who can or will do anything about it reads these things. This experience did not scare me away from Kickstarter projects, but it sure did make me more careful about what I back. So, thanks for the expensive lesson, lying scumbag.

      So much for an August delivery. No updates. Project abandoned.

      I found a store that sells Pencil Dice...

      http://www.sebastianbergne.com/product/pencil-dice/

      Apparently, "This Edition, first produced in 2008, is designed and produced by Sebastian Bergne Ltd."

      that's real interesting, he's a game HUSTLER. this PIECE OF SHIT will never get another dime from me.... we/you/he must be INSANE if we/you/he thinks it takes years to create a printed pincol.. poncil? pencle?

      I just bought some black pencils. Ticonderoga 12 pack. So I've got that going for me...

    15. Jolly Blackburn on

      I think Ken has abandoned these projects completely and won't even bother with any more updates. He's gone, gone, gone.

      OH man I can't wait to see the EPIC lies that come out of this post today. Let's see what BS we get spun today.

      I wish I could sue Ken for this.

    17. JML on

      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.

    18. Adrian Jones on

      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 :-)

    19. Jolly Blackburn on

      Ken bought a game store. He might be too busy for such trivial stuff as pencils. https://www.facebook.com/LittleMonsterGamesandComics/

      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.

    24. Jerry Behrendt on

      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..

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

    28. Rastl on

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

    29. Jolly Blackburn on

      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?

    33. Jolly Blackburn on

      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.

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

    37. Shea Antoinette on

      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....

    38. Jolly Blackburn on

      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.

      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.

      @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

      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.

    42. Jolly Blackburn on

      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.

      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.
