Dragon Forged LED Dice Vault and Polyhedrals by Gravity Dice

 Gravity Dice™ Dragon Forged Polyhedral 7 Dice Set and LED Dice Vault, plus new D6s.

Up until now, the focus of our company has been to create high-quality aluminum dice that are perfectly balanced. We have been blown away by the reviews and comments that customers have given us about our aluminum dice sets and have taken their feedback into consideration.

One of the biggest requests we’ve had is for an entry-level dice set that is more affordable than our metal dice, yet still made without compromise. After a bit of research and tinkering, we’ve come up with precision-crafted PMMA dice that we think you will love.

One of the biggest requests we’ve had is for an entry-level dice set that is more affordable than our metal dice, yet still made without compromise. After a bit of research and tinkering, we’ve come up with precision-crafted PMMA dice that we think you will love.

The Anatomy of a Perfect Dice

Our Gravity Dice™ have been designed to not only be as precise as possible in their manufacturing but also to change the way dice roll to make them more enjoyable, more random and completely unique. Each angle, corner, and chamfer was analyzed and reconfigured during weeks of testing.

Why We Use PMMA

PMMA, also called acrylic glass, has a high surface hardness, meaning it is very scratch resistant. It is also easily machined, easily cleaned, and lightweight. PMMA is also fully recyclable (although we know you’d never throw your awesome dice away!).

With a precision of less than 100 microns and engineered to enhance your random roll mechanics, these PMMA dice are simply amazing.

 Our Polyhedral Dice Set

We are offering a full set of polyhedral dice which includes 7 Dice: D20, D12, D10, D10%, D8, D6, and a D4. Each of our dice will have the numbers formed into the dice and will then be color-filled to help maintain the perfect balance.

Polyhedral sizes are as follows
The D20 measures 20 mm from face to face (FF) and 21.98 mm at its peak. The D12 is slightly smaller at 18 mm FF, the D10 and D10% measure 18 mm Point to Point (PP), the D8 is also 18 mm PP, the D6 is 16 mm FF and the D4 is 16 mm PP.

 Our first available colors: Translucent Red, Translucent Smoke, Translucent Blue, Translucent Teal, and Translucent Purple. As we reach our stretch goals we will unlock new colors and options, such as:

LED Dragon Forged Dice Vault:

The Light-Up Dragon Case will be in a solid color with translucent dice to match and will come with white LEDs and replaceable batteries.

Vault Specifications:Inner plastic tube casing: Height: 6.25," Diameter: 1.25"

The vault can hold up to 9 dice, depending on the size and shape of the dice. It comfortably fits our set of 7 polyhedral dice or 9 D6s.

D6 Sets

We took our famous Aluminum Gravity Dice and made them in PMMA just like the Polyhedral Sets. Each dice has a perfect center of gravity as well as mathematically calculated perfect random rolls. Each dice has the pip numbers at different depths and inked in either silver or gold dots.  We are offering a 6 Set for $12, a 12 Set for $20 and the Mega 36 Set for just $35.  You can also add these to your existing pledge amount if you want more than just D6's.

Add-Ons 

*Please check our FAQ for a description of how to include add-ons in your pledge. Here is our list of options:

  • We will also be doing a pack of 10 D10s for $20 (just like the D10 pledge level)n as an add-on option

 Game Mats - $15 each (Retail $25)

 Gravity Dice Game Mat v2 are made to be 14"x24"x1/8" with a stitched boarder. They are designed to give you superior protection for your tables rated up to stainless steel dice rolls. We also designed our mats to allow players to pick up gaming cards easier by just pushing down on one edge of the card. We achieved this by doubling the thickness of our previous mats. The stitching is also there to keep the edges of the mat from curling or warping. Select from multiple custom-designed game mats. They are the perfect size to use as a mouse pad too!

You must have backed a level of $15 or greater before adding these on to combine shipping. If you have backed the $5 level you must add $4 shipping to that level for US and $12 for international.

Risks and challenges

We have already started machining the molds. Our biggest hurdle will be hitting the color and appearance we are working towards. We are working with a material specialist that has over 30 years' experience in material mixtures and colorants. We are expecting to get the colors spot on, but we could possibly have a short delay if shipping the samples back and forth takes longer than expected.

Our second hurdle will be shipping. We have learned a lot about fulfillment since we started Gravity Dice in 2014. It will be a hurdle if we get more than 7,000 orders, but we are confident in our new shipping setup. We have greatly improved our shipping process to get your Kickstarter products to you quickly.
