“Alea iacta est”. Handmade solid stone dice for Demanding Gamers.

Update#29 - The final countdown!

We are really proud of our backers and all this success!

We would give a little of color to this campaign, and here is the black & white version: our dice in lava stone, with a special edition in marble.

If you like it, you can add the white version (ONLY Standard D6) to your pledge, adding $10 for each die of it, or simply chose it as extra-die (if you have a pledge of $58 or more), in the final survey.
In the photo below, there is also a fac-simile of our certificate of autenticity.

Update #27 - Dice Box available

Hi guys,

we are really enthusiast for the dice-box success and we noticed that many backers already added $5 for the dice-bo. So, it's time to unlock this feature for all backers.

You will receive the wood box (made for 5 dice), adding $5 for each of it you want.

We have always been fascinated by dice. Somehow we consider them as mystical objects, but all dice we've ever bought and used to play with didn't have a soul. After a walk in Vesuvius National Park, we realized that we wanted to have dice directly from Mother Earth which would be able to evoke old world feelings now lost in the traffic of the modern metropolis. So what material could be more evocative and pleasant to the touch and sight than the lava of a volcano?

Straight from the slopes of Vesuvius and forged one by one entirely by hand, these dice made of lava (sculpted solid stone) are a worldwide exclusive that we present here on Kickstarter for the first time. All dice will be finely worked and certified by an artisan from Torre del Greco (Naples) specialist in the processing of lava. Lava is an ancient and eternal material and today it is a really rare stone, because the last eruption of Vesuvius occurred in 1944 and the volcano is currently dormant.

The lava of Vesuvius is different from that of Etna or the Aeolian islands since, modifying itself during the centuries, it has become rich in potassium and decreased its quantity of silice, coming to be harder than marble.

During the 17th and 18th century the magnificent Vesuvian Villas of the “Golden Mile” had statues, columns, fountains and marvellous stairways made of lava stone. Masons then established a deep relationship with the lava stones they worked, passing on their craft techniques from father to son. And today, thanks to their knowledge and commitment, the Eternal Dice are here for you.

FAQ

  • They are handmade from solid lava stone, directly from the Vesuvius. We will post photos and video of processing and extraction of the stone.

    Last updated:
  • The dice will be tested to be random and the holes will be perfect. The photo shows a test and is not completely finished. This is an handmade product and lava stone is really hard to carve, but we are working to do it more accurately we can!

    Last updated:
  • You have to add $10 to your pledge for the worldwide shipping. We will send dice from Italy (Vesuvius) where they are made.

    Last updated:
  • Unfortunately kickstarter doesn't allow more than one pledge, but you have two options:

    1) You can add your new pledge amount to your actual pledge and notify this action to us with an email on kickstarter.
