Why This dice collection:
Here in Riot Dice we are all obsessed by design, doing this job we try to communicate through the design. This is why we use D6 with sharp corners only, they give us room where draw our ideas.
One evening in the last October we were driving back home from a convention. The sun was a shining red ball just over the horizon and we were talking to stay awake. We fell into a discussion about how strong is the need to show what group a human belongs to. Using flags pins uniforms, colors, kilts, huts... and talking Marco said:
"look at camo flags on camo uniforms, even when we try to stay hidden, humans have to show their sense of belonging"
... well... nothing left to add, the idea was born at that moment.
Political note: we have lots of worries here in Italy with our domestic politicians, we don't have time to think about US ones. This campaign is here because we love its design and because it is incredibly cool.
Why US Flags? Simply because Italian Army doesn't use the camo flags.
Why Pledges seem so expansive? our is an artisanal job, every die is handled several times during the process, we are very close to say that our dice are hand made.
Each set is made by 6 16 mm sharp corners dice, laser engraved and opaque paints in them. One face holds 6 stars and numbers from 1 to 5 on the other faces.
All the backers who will do their pledge in the first 24 hours will receive an exclusive commemorative die.

Risks and challenges
Production will be completely made in our workshop in Italy. If the project raises levels over our expectation production times could be longer, anyway we still have agreements with other companies to give away same part of productions so you should not worry.
The estimated delivery date is September 2018, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.
We've done our best to minimize these problems as much as possible, and we are always happy to refund pledges if, for some totally unforeseen reason, the project couldn't be delivered at all. Since it is 90% complete, we don't believe this will happen.
We have no ongoing projects currently other than The Camo Flag Dice so we're 150% on it.
We can refund you within 14 days of the campaign’s end, fees included. After that, we have a policy of no questions asked, though that’s minus Kickstarter and payment processing fees (which we can’t get back from them after 14 days). However, if we’ve begun packaging your pledge for shipment (usually 4 to 6 weeks before the actual shipping date), no refunds are possible. If a component cannot be delivered AT ALL, we refund that completely, including fees.
All refunds after the 14 days close of the campaign may be processed via Paypal.
This project is being funded in Euro and any refunds processed will be in Euro for the exact amount received in Euro, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.
