Risks and challenges
As with any Kickstarter, there is a chance of failure, however, I already have the manufacturer lined up and the artwork is complete. I am also currently getting the dice molds made. The only thing left to do at the end of the campaign is manufacturing the dice and shipping them.
I have budgeted approximately seven months to get the dice manufactured and shipped. In my experience, this is likely to take less time, but I wanted to make sure I didn't have to send delay notes to you. I aim to under promise and over deliver.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
