Dice as we've known them have served us well for 1000's of years. Dots have been the standard way to represent 1 - 6, but there is more then one way to graphically count to 6. It's time for a refresh on the old D6, to make it more interesting and to enhance game play in new ways.

Code + Dice = CoDi

We've created 3 new symbol families (as well as classic dots), each with it's own unique personality, laser etched onto standard-sized 16mm stainless steel and brass cubes. They have a nice, solid feel to them and deliver a long, satisfying roll with surprisingly little effort. 

CoDi are designed to enhance any game, either to replace the cheap plastic dice that came in the box or add new rule sets by pairing classic dice with additional 'code' dice. CoDi are a fresh, game-changing addition to any dice-powered game!

Meet the family!

Our goal with this project is to introduce the first edition of many graphic and material editions, each aimed at exploring new ways to enhance and expand what dice can contribute to gaming: 

Tally

A rif on traditional hash mark tallies, Tally has a refined old-school feel.

 

Symbol

A language all their own, with a symbol-centeric pattern, each symbol can represent a wide range of functions.

 

House

Inspired by building construction, a structure built in 6 steps. The House code can be an alternative to simple dots or it can represent new modes.

 

Classic

The family wouldn't be complete without classic dots! Mix Classics with House, Symbol or Tally to add new features to your game play.

 

..........................................................................................................................................

Update or UPGRADE!

With CoDi, you can simply replace your traditional dice for a new look or you can combine Classics & Codes to add interesting new rules, functions and features to a traditional 2-die game. 2 classics can be used to determine the number of moves, 2 codes to determine additional features of your choice. You can mix Stainless and Brass in the same game as well - the possibilities are endless!

Regardless of the pledge level, we've made it simple for you to choose the graphics and metal choice of each die - pairs or mixes of families or metals are both welcome.

..........................................................................................................................................

CoDi Bar

Dice need a home base! The CoDi bar is crafted from solid walnut and comes with each 4 or 6 dice set. Keep your CoDi organized and ready for action.

$25K Stretch goal!

Help us hit $25K before the end of the campaign and we'll include a dice bag with each pledge! For the 8 & 10 dice pledge levels, we'll include 2!

Project

We use CNC lathe turning and laser marking processes often, and have several well-tested shops whom we trust to work with. Predicting shipping schedules is always difficult, though, without knowing exactly how many pieces we will ultimately be producing. We’re confident that we will be able to BEGIN shipping in April.

 

So far, we have been very successful with our project planning - our average ship start time on out 16 crowdfunding projects has been about  6 weeks.

..........................................................................................................................................

Shipping

Our default worldwide shipping method will be by US Post. We've had a very high success rate with it on past projects, but please note that it will not include tracking past the US border. We're happy to help make alternative shipping arrangements with tracking at an additional cost if you require.

..........................................................................................................................................

Made in our neighborhood

Originally inspired by the local food movement, 'Onehundred' is named after the 100 mile radius around our studio where we seek out interesting, talented manufacturers, assuring that we can spend time getting to know them, their experience and capabilities. 

Over 16 successful projects, we've learned that our 'Made in our Neighborhood' philosophy improves quality, delivery speed and attention to detail. It also cuts the carbon footprint of our products by as much as 60%!

We've successfully shipped over 10,000 pledge rewards to 82 countries - welcome, world!

Risks and challenges

We have been working with our shops for several years now; we have a great relationships with them and they do quality work. Additionally, they have considerable capacity with multiple machines - always good to know in case this project requires larger than expected quantities! The biggest risk to beginning shipping on the stated delivery date, as always, is their production capacity or scheduling of other work at the time of our actual order.

For those of you who are new to our projects, we have a lot of product development, crowdfunding delivery experience and we communicate often!
