Risks and challenges

As you can see from the development cycle chart, we've already completed 4 out of the 7 steps to having happy customers! We have a factory eagerly awaiting orders and friends eagerly waiting to stuff envelopes and boxes full of dice for you!

Our current timeline has a fairly conservative estimate of mid December for delivery, just in time for the major winter holidays. However, delays can happen, so please keep that in mind. We will stay transparent through the whole shipping process to make sure you know exactly what's going on. Frequent updates will be issued!

Thank you very much for your support!
