About

Introducing Deco Dice from Dirty Vortex, a polyhedral dice set with an unmistakable look characterized by style, simplicity, and design. Here at the studio, we understand that gamers can never have enough dice in the collection. The DV team has been inspired to create something special – a unique, high-quality dice set inspired by the streamlined aesthetics of the Art-Deco movement.

We've been working closely with our production partner over the last few months to ensure the molds for the project were complete and physical samples received prior to launching the Kickstarter. The physical dice look great and production is ready to roll! 

To kick off the project, we are offering 4 colors of Deco Dice. Each of these colors will be available in the 7 piece polyhedral set and the 10 piece D10 set.

Pledge Levels have been kept simple with each tier reflecting a total count of dice sets that you want to order from 1 up to 10 or more. Ordering 5 sets of dice? Select any combination of the Core Sets listed below. Additional colors and set combinations will be made available via Stretch Goals and, where applicable, these will be made part of the Core Sets that can be ordered as part of your default reward tier. 

Once the Kickstarter is complete, we will verify which sets you want to receive via the BackerKit Survey.

For ease of reference you can see which sets are currently available on the below chart.

As we progress through the Kickstarter we hope to open up a lot of great Stretch Goals. Each Stretch Goal will be marked as either a Core Set, Add-On or Upgrade. Core Sets will be added to the list of default options you can select as part of your pledge. 

Will be added to the list of Core Sets and made available to order as 10 piece D6 sets in a single color. Backers may choose from any of the 4 colors available.

We have many more Stretch Goals planned if we are lucky enough to make it this far!

All of the Core Set options that are made available via Stretch Goals can be ordered as part of your default pledge but a select few options are only available via Add-Ons. If you would like to include any of below sets as an Add-On be sure to adjust your pledge amount accordingly. We’ll verify exactly which options you want to order during the project survey which will go out shortly after the Kickstarter finishes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Hand Finished Add-Ons are currently only available to backers in the USA and the Add-On will be marked accordingly below.

Each of these sets are taken directly from the mold with no polishing or ink applied. They have a light polishing applied by hand before being finished with a food grade mineral oil to bring out the luster. Each set is hand finished by the DV team here in Los Angeles, California and inspected prior to shipping.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Hand Finished Add-Ons are currently only available to backers in the USA and the Add-On will be marked accordingly below.

Each of these hand-finished Add-Ons will take an unpolished set of dice straight from the molds and have the numbers filled with clay or putty. They have a light polishing applied by hand before being finished with a food grade mineral oil to bring out the luster. These have a sharper edge than the Core Sets since they do not go through a machine polish cycle at the factory.

As a way to spread the word on Deco Dice and start building a community, we've introduced Community Achievements that we hope will generate a range of interaction on Social Media and beyond.  As those stars turn Gold, we’ll open up a range of bonus rewards.

If sharing the project link on Facebook, tweeting/retweeting on Twitter or posting/reposting via Instagram, be sure to use the hashtag #decodice so that we can track the progress of the Community Achievements and unlock the rewards!

All shipping costs will be collected after the Kickstarter is complete via BackerKit based on actual weight and dimensions of the final shipment. We are investigating all options to improve the rates and any savings will be reflected in the final shipping costs.

The rates above are current estimates, so fluctuations can be expected.

Risks and challenges

Although this is one of our first Kickstarters under the Dirty Vortex label, the team is comprised of individuals who have worked on a series of successfully funded Kickstarters for companies such as Make Believe Games, Cubicle 7 and Green Ronin Publishing. This experience has been invaluable during the project preparation and will continue to be key in shipping a quality product to our backers within the stated delivery timeline. That said, there are many variables in the supply chain that can impact on time delivery. Delays in production, shipping or customs clearance are common and we’ll keep the backers informed along the way on how the project is progressing.
