The Standard Edition dice will be a single solid color. The color is subject to change from this Kickstarter (for example, the Shadow Thief dice will likely become purple).
The Champion Edition dice will either have a marbled/swirled look or a translucent gem look. Or we may do a combination of the two (for example, magic-centric heroes may have gem dice while physical heroes have marbled). In either case, we will run a poll at the conclusion of the campaign to vote on the dice style *per hero*. Stay tuned :)
We toiled over this point. Some of the cards have quite a bit of content on their front face. Enough that you wouldn't be able to properly see individual card art and it would likely be distracting to the text / activation cost on some cards. So in the end, we decided to have unique art on the hero board, leaflet, and card back, but *not* on each card front. We felt it was more important that you could actually read the cards :)
Dice Throne uses standard-sized "bridge" cards (2.25" wide by 3.5" tall). These are narrower than poker / MtG playing cards. We have recently ordered bridge sleeves and are trying to determine of we can just the vacuum trays accordingly. The biggest thing we need to discover is how much it will expand the trays and box. And then if the boxes are bigger, how many games will fit in a single shipping crate? If the box size pushes us into the next tier of shipping, it could be a very expensive decision. Stay tuned!
The true solo/co-op campaign mode will not be included until our next Dice Throne kickstarter is released (likely in Nov 2017). I (Nate) am a huge co-op fan personally. Thankfully, our 2v2 / 3v3 team-based gameplay scratches that cooperative itch for me in the mean time.
Yes! ;-) Our next Dice Throne kickstarter will likely be released Nov 2017 (subject to change). This box will include 4+ heroes and a solo/co-op campaign mode. This box will be stand-alone & completely cross-compatible as well. You can use the new heroes to battle against the old or the old heroes to team up with the new in the co-op campaign. We can't wait for this version to be released!
1) Purchase card stock and print everything out at home and cut it all up. This actually works fairly well and the cost is low.
2) For a lower quality but even cheaper version, print everything on normal paper at your house. Then sleeve the cards with any standard poker sized card to create rigidity. Our actual cards are standard bridge size and our print & play cards are slightly smaller still. But sleeving them with a poker card will be no problem for the print & play version.
3) Take it to your local print shop and have them print it for you.
Lastly, there are also multiple youtube videos, wikis, and reddit articles that go more in-depth with various options, such as this one:
