What is it?

The ideal solution for keeping track of each player's life total during casual games of Magic the Gathering.  Each “G10” set includes a pair of dice and dice cradle for up to five players. Together, the two sequentially numbered ten-sided dice display scores between 0-99.

Benefits:

Spin-Down D10's!

When it comes to incremental life-tracking, regular D10’s are good, but Spin-Down D10’s are fantastic!  

The G10 : 0-99 Spin-Down Life-Counter is:

  • More satisfying to use than pencil/paper, wheels, spinners, or phone apps.
  • Easier to see from a distance than standard D20 or D30’s.
  • Resistant to accidental bumps.
  • Compact.
  • Looks great.

 

3D printed prototypes and standard D10's.  The finished version is injection molded and includes spin-down D10's.

 Express yourself. The dice and cradles may be mixed into a variety of color combinations.  Compatible with standard ten-sided dice.

Spread the Word: The greatest thing you can do for me (other than backing) is spreading the word about this campaign. All casual Magic: The Gathering players will benefit from this product… they just don’t know it yet. Ask around. I'm certain that you know someone who knows someone else who plays Magic: The Gathering.

Stretch Goals:

Once we hit the $15,000 goal, I’ll include a micro fiber dice bag with G10 logo on all pledges of $20 or more.  Thanks for your support!

Once $30,000 is raised, I intend to make G10's available in additional colors.

Risks and challenges

Building custom molds is expensive and time consuming. I have self-funded much of the project on my own, but additional funds are needed to produce the cradles. The custom dice and cradle are currently in production (cradles made in the U.S.A. & dice made in Poland) and both are on schedule for completion by mid-June. Since each manufacturer is producing their parts simultaneously using different mediums, I speculate that the shading between the dice and G10 cradle may vary slightly.
