For our second Kickstarter we are introducing a d60 and a d60 spindown. Both of these dice started as a solid billet of aircraft grade aluminum and were milled by a massive 5-axis industrial CNC into a stunningly precise pentakis dodecahedron. After a light bead blast they were subjected to the most durable anodize possible - a type III hard coat anodize. They were both laser marked with the numbers 1-60, but that is where the similarities end.
The Flying Horseduck d60 - the finest d60 ever made
You can find other d60s, but none like this. As far as we have found available for sale in production volume, this is the only precision milled d60, the only metal pentakis dodehedron d60, the only d60 with laser marked numbers, and the most fair d60 ever created. Our crisp edges and flat faces mean the die doesn't take too long to stop rolling and the result is always easy to see. Also, there are tons of cool ways to use it!!
That's right... you can actually use it in your game! We are assembling the most comprehensive collection of d60 resources anywhere and making them freely available to the public on our website. Epic items, dangerous monsters, awesome loot tables, intriguing puzzles, time-saving quick tables, and tips on how to easily bring the d60 to life in your game. Everything is downloadable and printable for free. We have just gotten started - we will continuously add to them with our ideas and the ones you come up with!
The d60 spindown - so much more than your average life counter
Unlike the d60, the d60 spindown was designed to keep track of scores, life totals, hit points, etc. The numbers are in order so you can easily scroll through them by rotating the die. Our d60 spindown offers many advantages over traditional spindown dice. The most obvious is that it goes all the way up to 60 instead of ending at 20. This makes it the perfect counter for commander format or lifelink decks in MTG, an easy way to track the hit points of PCs or NPCs, and an elegant way to keep score in your favorite card or board game.
It is much easier to use than a traditional spindown. All of our numbers are marked so that they are facing up when you use the die making them easy to read. The top and bottom vertex are pointy enough that you can easily spin the die and even operate it one-handed. Although we didn't design it to be rolled as a d60, it is so precisely milled that that even with the numbers in order it is still makes a more fair d60 than others you could buy. The best part about this die is how it feels. It is heavy, cold, and beautiful in a way that is hard to appreciate until you hold it in your hand for the first time.
