This project solves a problem! It started with a search for a more accessible coin flipping method for our pirate board game Yargo (2015). Sure, you could roll a d6 and pick odds or even, but for a more aesthetically pleasing solution, IMP's Coin Toss Dice have arrived! To the best of our knowledge (a quick google search) this is the first die with actual coins set into the face.
Coin Toss Dice keep the feel of coins but accommodates those of us who, for whatever reason, don't want a traditional coin flip. Hand-crafted in wood and brass, so even your grandchildren can roll in style. You can use them in place of any coin toss and they look GREAT on your shelf!
Coin Dice come standard in beautiful Bigleaf Maple, or upgrade to Black Walnut or Oregon Myrtle. All our hardwoods are sustainably harvested here in Oregon, where we take each piece from log form to finished product!
Coin Toss Dice come in two sizes, the limited edition Extra Large dice are beautiful display pieces but the Standard dice size is the best for serious rolling.
The standard pirate coin design is taken from our game, Yargo. A high visibility design will be our first stretch funding goal. Request the Coin Antiquing Add-On to enhance the old-fashioned look of your dice.
More stretch goals with more new designs will be added as the campaign is running, stay tuned!
For our beloved boardgame merchants, we've put together a special 18 piece package deal with half a dozen dice in each species, all in a handsome retail display box with engraved lid.
The first 5 retail backers receive a free custom engraving on the face of the box!

International Modern Pastimes LLC was started in 2015 by Jaerod Case and Andrew Newell. Our original wooden pirate board game, Yargo, was funded on Kickstarter and we finished production of the first edition last year.
International Modern Pastimes is expanding, our new office in downtown Hillsboro, OR is now open!
Production is expanding as well, we've started working with an awesome Oregon wood company, North Woods Figured Woods in Gaston, OR.
Check out if their website if you need wood for a project, really great people! Thanks Les and Susan :)
We really appreciate your support! Our goal for this campaign is to help offset the cost of minting a new batch of tokens, paying media designers, and expedite the launch of our upcoming projects- including the second edition of Yargo.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, we're pretty friendly around here. Thanks for reading and thanks for backing!
