Behold three new layered dice designs:

"Reality Shards", "Supernova Dice", and "Neutron Dice"

  • The 'all-fathers' of dice, the Reality Shards, are the preternatural parents of dice. They feature 5 pearlescent layers with an awe-inspiring A-B-C-B-A color scheme.
  • Painstakingly designed, Reality Shards toss the limits of dice design on its head. 
  • Each set is named after the quintessential reality that they represent.  Watch the campaign video for the full story! 

Reality Shard d20s, are particularly special in that they feature a castle tower icon on their 20-face.  No other dice in the world (even on this campaign) do this!

Reality Shards are the direct parents of what you may know of as Halfsies Dice, a symbol of "Unity through Gaming". 

...but Halfsies Dice, have a half-life ending in a dynamic explosion creates our next design...

  • Supernova Dice are 3-layer dice ...with a perfectly transparent center! 
  • Carefully designed, the center of what is otherwise a traditional Halfsies Die has been blown out and replaced with a 100% transparent resin.  
  • The result: The vertices and viewing angles cause various colors to dance through the center as you roll them!

...but when dice go nova, their cores are not destroyed, only ejected!  They can be discovered floating throughout the cosmos in the form of:

  • Neutron dice are 3-layer dice ...turned inside out. 
  • With a perfectly transparent top, and bottom, bearing a single thin pearlescent sparkling layer of color through the center. 
  • The result: depending on your angle of viewing, they may appear as a solid color, half colored yet half clear, or perfectly clear on the top and bottom with the beautiful layer of color seen in the center.

Watch a few seconds of this video to see how cool these dice are...

Quick view of the designs unlocked, with full details further below...

Each single d20 in the image below represents the full 7-die set unlocked with it, now also available as 11-die, 12d6, or 10d10!

  • Gate Keeper Games dice are heavier, denser, and better balanced than what you're used to.  An authentic quality and balance upgrade to your collection.
  • We center the high and low numbers on the color halves so you can always find these important numbers quickly, speeding up game play!
  • We offer a money back guarantee on all our dice.  Love or return em!  

Now that's funded and we have over 20 sets types and colors unlocked, not even including the 12d6 sets and 10d10 sets available in every unlocked color & style, and we're ready to kick down doors on some new colors! 

Let's take a look...

The first unlocked Dice Family is:

You may have noticed that we priced all 3 set types: Reality Shards, Supernova Dice, and Neutron Dice the same, despite the various MSRPs.  We hope you appreciate the choice to align them to the lower price of the 3-layer designs, something I did to save you money on your early pledge making your decision to back easier!

The second Dice Family is:

Stretch Goals!  

Unlocking quickly, it's only $3,000-$6,000 per goal.  Occasionally, 2 sets at once!  

The next dice Family is:

The final dice Family is the BACKER CHOSEN...

Don't stop there!  Look at what we're giving backers for FREE by reading on in the "Bonuses by Tier" section...

The following items are available to add on to your pledge.  

To add any item, simply add the value of the item to your pledge amount, that may cause you to jump up a Pledge Tier and earn more "Bonuses by Tier"!  The designs that you choose will be sorted out in the pledge manager after the campaign.

Got questions about what your pledge total should be?  Ask in the comments.  We'd be happy to help.

Looking for Halfsies Dice? 

They're all available on our website at www.GateKeeperGaming.com.

As a bonus, all orders that come in on our website during the campaign go toward improving the campaign on the back-end!

I want to make "Reality" a better place.

Thus I'm going to make a donation to a specific cause in response to each and every set ordered during this campaign.  

All the causes are outright charitable and a universally-agreeable way to make reality a better place (like feeding children).  So I want to help them!

You don't need to do anything other than pledge as you normally would.  When you order the dice you love, we donate to spread that love. 

The more sets YOU order, the more I donate! 

Here's the cause list:

We have not chosen a specific organization for every given cause just yet because we're open to suggestions (via private message please) and we do excessive research on the viability of any orgs we donate to, and that takes time. 

Fine Print: Funds will not be taken from campaign funding under any circumstance.  Any backer may opt out, for any reason during the pledge manager.  This has been pre-approved by Kickstarter staff and meets their TOCs.

Our estimated shipping date is May 2019.  

We've spent the last 18 months speeding up our turn-around time with both production and delivery, and have made vast improvements.  While any timeline stands a chance of getting delayed as there's a always chance of hang-ups with dice production, given the changes we've made in the last year... we outright intend to deliver early.

Shipping rates are guaranteed not to increase after the campaign, even if we see an increase in costs.

These dice will not be available after the campaign for late pledges!  

...and only existing backers at the close of the campaign will be able to add dice during the pledge management process.  This is to ensure the most rapid turn around of dice production by initiating the most immediate and accurate order possible.  

So get your pledge in early, even if only for 1 set; as you can always upgrade later.  It also helps all your fellow backers by unlocking more dice sets faster!

Our family style:

Gate Keeper Games provides the best customer loyalty and service in the dice industry.  Our policy is to give way more than what is expected, because we understand that you have family and friends you support too.  When you support GKG, we support you like a guest in our own home.

Like or return it: 

Thus, we guarantee you'll love your dice AND your time with Gate Keeper Games, or you can return the dice within 40 days for a full refund.  The ultimate dice jail.

Like it or get it free:

Further, if, after making it this far in the campaign, and discussing it with your friends, you can't find a single dice set that appeals to you in style or color enough for you to back this project today, we ask that before you leave you back it for just $1 so that we can send you a free sample during fulfillment.  If it still doesn't convince you of the quality and beauty of our dice, then we'll buy you a set from another designer.  True story.  We're that confident in our product.

A special note of thanks to: Don Reents aka: "The Dice-Father" of Chessex, for inspiring us all these years; to Mike and Mark from Crystal Caste, for never ceasing their creativity and kindness to me; to Brian Wade of Kraken Dice for his kicking down of doors; to Todd of Die Hard Dice for setting a standard of customer service that inspires us all; to John of Roll 4 Initiative, for being honorable in all his dealings; to our factory and their workers for being the best in the business; to all of our World Tour Photographers, you'll always have free shipping from me; and to all of our past backers and customers, whether you return and read this, or not, you got us this far, and I'll never cease my prayers and gratitude for you.  

To each and every one of you above, and to YOU reading this right now... Thank you! 

Whether you decide to back or not, you gave me your time today, and that's a much more precious resource than money or dice.  For that, you'll always have a place at my gaming table!

Risks and challenges

In the last 18 months following the house fire and manufacturer issues, we've had a lot of time to regroup, reorganize, and re-calibrate our life, our ties, and our connections. As a result Gate Keeper Games is a better, stronger, and faster dice and game publisher. We've literally spent a year and a half only working re-calibration and designing new products. That is how we are able to bring you so many amazing new products so quickly and easily.

That said, the only real risks are the classic ones of ships being hit by meteors, California customs sinking into the Pacific, or Thanos getting to the dice before we do.

This also isn't our first Kickstarter. It's number 10. And every one has has been successfully completed and fulfilled. We welcome you to contact our previous backers to hear how well we communicate, deliver, and most notably: take care of our backers like our own family.
