UPDATE - WE ARE SO CLOSE AND I'M SO CONFIDENT WE WILL HIT THE NEXT STRETCH GOAL THAT I'LL COVER IT IF WE DON'T - I WILL BE DOING THE 7 SET RAINBOW COLOR FOR SURE. SO PLEASE PLEDGE WITH THAT IN MIND!

You will be able to continue to pre-order these dice after this campaign ends at - 

http://www.miniongames.com/d-and-d-dice-and-bags/foam-and-plush-dice.html

Final color choice order: 1) deep purple, 2) royal blue, 3) deep red, 4) black, 5) dark green, 6) orange, 7) grey.

Perfect for a quiet individual, learning activities, kids toy... OR for throwing at your RPG Game Master, punish an abusive character, or waking up that sleeper in the corner! This is a FULL set (the only foam set with d6 and [stretch goal] Ten's d10 being included at one low price) of large soft foam polyhedral dice.

These soft foam dice are great for many uses. From your spawn's first set of dice (ages 3+), to helping the hard of sight old fart DM see the numbers, to educational uses (yeah I said that), to just throwing them at your Game Master!

The basic set will include six dice, 1 of each of these 2" (tall) foam dice:

  • 4 sided die (1-4)
  • 6 sided die (1-6) (numbers not pips)
  • 8 sided die (1-8)
  • 10 sided die (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)
  • 12 sided die (1-12)
  • 20 sided die (1-20)

These dice are just the right size to fit in your fist and they are squishy too! Fondle them without shame. Roll them and knock over miniatures without remorse. Best of all the 4 sided die doesn't hurt when you step on it!

If you want two rewards, you can just add the total of the other reward to your pledge.

.

NOTE: The dice shown in the video are very similar dice but not the actual dice we are making. They are only shown for demonstrational purposes.

The final color of these dice will be done all in DEEP PURPLE with white lettering- unless we reach the stretch goals that allow voting. The font will change to something more stylish but very readable.

These dice are made of non-toxic Polyurethane and then tampo printed (stamped) for long lasting markings. Child safe (if they don't eat them!), Cat friendly, and recommended for ages 3+

For a video demo of rolling the dice: http://youtu.be/YMLuz2h27Rg

Prototypes from the factory:

The dice will come packaged in a plastic bag with a printed cardboard hang top.

.

NOTICE: Add-Ons can be only added non-EU and non ESSEN orders as we do not have these extra items in the EU to ship them and would cost an extra shipping charge. If you still want them, you can pay for an International shipping charge instead of EU to get them there. We can probably stick a bag into a first class envelope to get to you though. So again, NO LOOSE DICE will be shipped to the EU.

To buy any item off the ala-carte menu you simply need to modify your pledge to add the dollars listed to your total pledge amount, but leave your reward set to the original reward. After the campaign finishes, we'll use a system called BACKERKIT to allow you to spend your over pledged amount in a cart like checkout system.

RETAILERS: We encourage backers to name a local store in their area they would like to pick up their dice from instead of having them mailed. These dice will also be available in distribution later this year but you'll be the first to get them if you back us here.

We will include a 7th die for FREE with ALL sets!  This will be the 10's 10 sided die that has 00,10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90 on it. Perfect for rolling percentages (1-100).

* REACHED! ALL SETS NOW INCLUDE A 7TH DIE!

(Kickstarter Exclusive) * REACHED!

EVERYONE GETS A FREE BAG! A large 8x8x5" velvet draw string bag to put your dice in! I've tested it and 10 dice fit great.

* REACHED! ALL SETS OF DICE COME WITH 1 BAG.

Vote for 2nd Color! * REACHED!

If we get this many backers we'll take a vote on the color of a second set of dice. We will allow everyone a vote on the color. We will still make the purple with normal numbers so we don't confuse the people who see them here. There might be a couple rounds of voting so keep paying attention to our updates.

VOTE HERE: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DiceColor

Possible colors:

The voting link is in a private update #4 on this campaign that only those who back our project may see.  Here are the results as of 6/2 with 348 responses:

.

Color Choice! * REACHED!

We will make the dice in three different color sets. Still 1 color per set, but we'll make yet another set of a different color. We will use the second place votes.  (We will still make a purple & white sent with normal font)

More Color Choices!* REACHED!

We will make the dice in yet another color set. Still 1 color per set, but we'll make yet another set of a different color.

More Color Choices!* REACHED!

We will make the dice in yet another color set. Still 1 color per set, but we'll make yet another set of a different color.

More Color Choices!* REACHED!

We will make the dice in yet another color set. Still 1 color per set, but we'll make yet another set of a different color.

Rainbow Multi-Color set! *Guaranteed!

Now that we'll be making 7 colors, not only will we make dice in the 7th color choice but also we'll also make a set that contains 1 die of each color in it!

NOTE: We will not make 2 shades of green, so Dark and Light green will count as one color and we'll pick the one with the most votes, thus moving to the next most popular color.

UPDATE: Font vs Color survey results clearly show people want more colors instead of an expensive font change... so I'm updating the stretch goal below.


Shipping is included in all rewards.


Participating Retailers:

Please ask your local retailer to help us out and let them know you want a set so they order enough! 

Why are these better than Learning Resource's dice your retailer may have? Well we include 7 dice instead of 5 for the same price. LR doesn't include a d6 die! Ours will be a bit smaller and all the same color so they look less like kids toys. Ours is sold in normal distribution channels so they don't have to special order. We have more/different colors and FUDGE dice for all your collector customers! Plus you'll save an extra 5% here at this campaign and have them before anyone else.
