Around here, we like things a little different.
We are located in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. In this area, there are very few options for roleplaying game accessories. We noticed there was a real need for people outside of big cities to have access to these items; that's where we come in! We carry mainstream staples, such as dice and dice trays, and then there are some unique items that you just won't find anywhere else.
No one should have to go without beautiful gaming accessories!
After years of searching for the elusive 5mm metal micro dice sets, we finally found a few sets. Unfortunately, by the time we found them, it was already too late. The micro dice weren't being manufactured anymore and full sets soon ran out. Disappointed, we looked elsewhere, but found that there was nobody manufacturing these adorable little dice. After years of negotiating with manufacturer after manufacturer, and being told they were impossible to make, we are happy to say that the smallest dice sets on the market will be available to everyone once again!
We spent countless hours negotiating the design of the new micro dice. Once the design was easy to read, and met our standards for high-quality, we began making the molds with our manufacturer. After months of endless hard work, we officially have our 5mm metal micro dice in production! We're starting out with Silver and Gold, and the rest is up to you!
These prototype micro dice will bring you the first in a long line of tiny dice that will roll on the tables and in the dice trays of many adventurers all across the world. With supporters across the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, North America and more, these tiny dice will be brought back into the spotlight once again!
Shipping Fees and Local Pickup
All of the shipping fees, add-ons, and dice color selections will be handled through BackerKit once the Kickstarter campaign has successfully completed. A survey will be sent out through BackerKit allowing you to choose your dice colors and add any extra dice sets or other add-ons to your final selection. We have a brand new option to allow for local pick up! Backers can select local pick up as their “country” and they will be notified when their items are ready to be collected.
Please be aware that backers are responsible for any customs and import fees associated with their items. Orders shipping to Canada and the US will not have any import fees but other countries might. Please check with your local postal service for more information.
Variety is everything when it comes to our love of shiny klik-klacks. With the support of our Kickstarter backers, we will be able to manufacture several new colors of the micro dice that will add to the variety that every dice hoarder... er... dice collector... covets.
Along with our initial colors of Silver and Gold, your support can help to unlock several additional colors and even an add-on d20! If we reach the final Stretch Goal, a Special-Edition color set of Dragon's Heart micro dice will become available to all backers!
Please note: the following photos are actual product photos except for Dragon's Heart. The sample was not available before the close of the campaign.
Where The Money Goes
You might be wondering where we came up with the numbers we're presenting to you. Making custom micro dice comes with a hefty price tag! Here is a breakdown of the basic costs associated with this endeavor.
- $3,000 USD for custom molds (approx. $4,000 CAD)
- $3,500 USD per color released (approx. $4,700 CAD)
- $500 CAD for shipping and customs fees (assuming single shipment)
- 10% for Kickstarter fees and pledge payment processing
- 3% for BackerKit pledge manager
We have tried to set our campaign goal and stretch goals realistically while taking all of these factors into account.
Risks and challenges
This will be a relatively short campaign (20 days!!) because we are going to try to get the 1-3 set pledges shipped out in time for Christmas. Larger pledges will need more time to process so they may not ship until closer to February 2020. That being said, if we’ve learned anything from producing custom dice, it’s that there can be unforeseen delays.
There is always the possibility that manufacturing, shipping, customs, etc. may take longer than anticipated, but we promise to get all pledges shipped out as soon as we can.
