Elder Dice - Cthulhu Mythos themed dice for tabletop gamers

Elder Dice add the perfect magical touch to any fantasy or horror roleplaying game. They are also perfect for enhancing the dice in any boardgame. We have designed three different dice sets, each packaged in a matching spellbook box with a magnetic closure. We also have sets of six-sided dice in each design for everyone who needs to roll d6s by the fistful.

Each set of Elder Dice contains the complete set of nine polyhedral gaming dice: 1 four-sided die, 3 six-sided dice, 1 eight-sided die, 1 ten-sided die, 1 ten-sided percentile die, 1 twelve-sided die, and 1 twenty-sided die. Each is packaged in its own matching grimoire box with a magnetic closure.

Elder Dice are packaged in matching spell books.

If you pledge for less than all three of the sets, you will choose which sets you would like after the campaign through a pledge manager. Shipping will be charged through a pledge manager after the campaign.

Elder Dice is ready to send to the manufacturer. All designs and artwork have been complete, and the molds for the dice are ready to be made. We just need your help to fund its production. Without a successful Kickstarter campaign, Elder Dice will not be manufactured. But there are also other reasons to back now:

  • Kickstarter backers receive a large discount off of retail pricing.
  • Your pledge can contain special Kickstarter rewards if the stretch goals are unlocked.
  • Elder Dice may never enter retail channels. Pledge here on Kickstarter to have your Elder Dice rewards arrive at your door.
  • The Elder Dice Collectors Set will not be available off of Kickstarter. If you want to receive the complete set of Elder Dice with the special extra six-sided dice, you must pledge here.

For all these reasons, make your pledge today to make sure Elder Dice gets to your gaming table!

Do you need extra Elder Dice or sets of d6s? No problem. Just select one of the pledge levels and then adjust your pledge by the appropriate amount according to the add on you would like. We will follow up with a pledge manager after the campaign to make sure you get exactly what you want.

Shipping will be charged through a pledge manager after the campaign closes. This will allow us to keep shipping as low as possible for everyone. We are also coordinating with several international fulfillment partners around the world to bring Elder Dice to gaming tables as easily and as swiftly as possible.

Risks and challenges

We are very excited to bring Elder Dice to the gaming community. It's a privilege to be entrusted by so many people to bring this project to life. We will work hard to make sure it is as smooth as can be. Together David and Heath have completed a combined six Kickstarter campaigns. Each Kickstarter project brings many valuable lessons learned. Because we have so much experience, we feel very confident in our ability to deliver a quality product to you.

We have allotted time to finalize the project at the conclusion of the campaign, and then we will roll right into production. Strong relationships with our international fulfillment partners are incredibly important and give us confidence in our ability to deliver your rewards in a safe and economical manner.

With our experience, we also know that unexpected issues can arise during the production process. Final preparation after the Kickstarter campaign could take longer than expected. There can be manufacturing delays that are beyond our control, and when the product is inspected for quality control, a flaw could be found and a part may have to be remade. We will not sacrifice quality, even if it pushes the schedule back!

Also, please remember that the images shown on the Kickstarter page and in the video are of our prototypes. The final dice may vary slightly in detail and in color. But, when you support Elder Dice, we promise to keep you up to date about its progress from the campaign’s close all the way to when the dice are shipped. As you can see from our previous campaigns, we regularly post updates. We will let you know what we know, when we know it!
