About

Hello, Gamers! 

I'm Daniel Gallant, owner of Dan The Dice Guy, and I love dice. From the pointy D4 to the beloved D6 and D8, the handy D10 and D12, to the ubiquitous D20 and more, I sell them all. But with games like Magic: The Gathering and Genesis: Battle of Champions on the market, I found there is something missing. There is no easy way to keep track of your health if you go above 20. That is why I'm creating the Spin Down D30 dice. A way to keep track of your health from 1 to 30 on just one die.

No more are the days where you need to use the randomized D30, which is a pain to use to keep track of your health. Or use multiple dice to keep track of one number. Now you can use one dice to keep track of your health going from 1 to 30 in sequential order.

Even more, we've partnered with Haunted Castle Gaming Inc. the creators of Genesis: Battle of Champions to release special edition dice for their game.

The Dice  

To keep your costs down and to make the dice more portable, we have designed a 25mm  triacontahedron dice which fits perfectly in a dice tray or in your bag. For our initial run, we plan to start by offering the following two colours:

Crimson Red, which will be a standard 30 sided countdown die.


Ivory White, which will be a 30 sided countdown die but the 30 will be replaced with the Jaelara symbol from Genesis.

This is the Jaelara symbol

The Costs  

Our goal is to raise $3,200 CND to create the moulds, manufacture the dice, and get this product to you. The breakdown will be as such:

The Stretch Goals

Getting these dice to you would be amazing but that doesn't mean there aren't more awesome ideas we have in store. 

$5,000 - A new colour of Spin Down d30 to be voted on.

$6,500 - A larger 34mm Spin Down d30 available as an add-on.

$8,888 - Everyone gets a Kickstarter Exclusive Bright Green Spin Down die with a Dan The Dice Guy logo in place of the 30! Show it to the folks at the Dan The Dice Guy booth at a convention for 10% off all purchases. You will also get a special discount code for DanTheDiceGuy.com.

$10,000 - A new colour of Spin Down d30 to be voted on.

$50,000 - A metal Spin Down d30 available as an add-on.

Genesis: Battle of Champions Patreon Members

If you are part of the Genesis: Battle of Champion Patreon, you can opt out of getting your dice shipped to you individually and we will ship the dice to you in your Patreon reward package. 

Also, all of the Genesis Patrons who back the project will get an additional premium promo card in their package for the month.

Backerkit

For your convenience, we will be using Backerkit to manage your dice choices as well as your shipping. "BackerKit is a backer survey and data management platform that helps crowdfunding creators send surveys, sell add-ons and pre-orders, and manage backer data for rewards fulfillment." (Link to BackerKit's website)

Shipping Estimates

Below are our current shipping estimates. We will be looking at several other options for lower shipping.

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter, there is a chance of failure, however, we already have the manufacturer lined up and the dice molds are made. The only thing left to do at the end of the campaign is manufacturing the dice and shipping them.

We have budgeted approximately two months to get the dice manufactured and shipped. In my experience, this is likely to take less time, but we wanted to make sure we didn't have to send delay notes to you. We aim to under promise and over deliver.
