What are they?

dLUX JUMBO Dice are large scaled versions of dice found in role playing games. While these dice will roll larger in comparison to their normal counterparts we don't guarantee increased luck! They are made from birch ply with 4 potential stains: Walnut, Cherry, Brown, and Clear. The set includes one D4, one D6, one D8, one single digit D10(0 to 9), one double digit D10 (00 to 90), one D12, and one D20.

Basket not included.

How did you make them?

The dice are made with two layers of ply while the outer layer has stain applied by roller. Once dry, the finished wood is then engraved with a laser cutter. All dice are hand assembled here in Kentucky, USA. Finally the glue dries, they're packaged, and shipped straight to you!

Why Kickstarter?

The two of us have spent the last year developing our original JUMBO Dice on etsy. We wanted to expand our capabilities, and deliver a higher end edition to you! Kickstarter is the perfect platform with the reach to get our idea to you all. With your support we will be ready to premiere the dLUX JUMBO Dice, and begin production. By pledging through Kickstarter we can offer free shipping within the United States, and reduced shipping cost internationally. You, our backers, should be paying less than what will eventually appear online after fulfillment. Such as on huntsbrook.etsy.com

Backing here on Kickstarter saves on shipping costs! But be aware that your country may charge "duty and tax" in addition to your pledge.

  • Free shipping for backers in the United States
  • $5 for shipping to Canada
  • $10 in the European Union
  •  $15 everywhere else

Important! About Stains...

Due to limited options on Pledge Settings be sure to contact us if you want your dice stained differently from the default Cherry. You can leave a comment within Kickstarter or contact us directly. Edit: If you are getting multiple dice you can also choose the stains for each individual piece!

We are more than happy to accommodate with any of our options below! 

Timeline

Starting from this Kickstarter in early April our current timeline is the following:

  • Attend LexiCon during April, and help promote the project
  • From April to June we will be building up stock of dLux JUMBO Dice
  • Begin packaging and prep for fulfillment during June
  • We would like to start shipping in July, and finish during October

Quantities may affect the timeline, but we want to get these to you before the holidays in 2019!

Thank you for your interest, and support!

Risks and challenges

Every project has their own obstacles that need to be surpassed. In our case we already have a workshop ready to go, and much of the logistical purchases are set in place. Most of the funding will go into the product instead of making huge purchases on machines that we already have. Once the materials are gathered then labor costs will be considered. We also bring prior experience from our original JUMBO Dice that will help smooth out the process when it comes to fulfillment. We will do our best to stick with our deadlines put forth.
