About

Our Story

PYE Games is a brand new, family-run gaming company - and we LOVE tabletop games! A few of our favorite games have presented quite a challenge in the number-tracking department. None of us are accountants, and  we don't like to feel like we're in math class when we're keeping score. Thus was born the spinnable point counter, the Gaming Gizmo! And then its cousin, the Spin Dice, came into being when we discovered how much fun they are to spin!

Stretch Goals

You guys, we were fully funded in 17 hours! Is this even real life? We're so excited to now unveil our stretch goals! Once our campaign reaches the amounts below, it will unlock special rewards for our community. Follow along as we unveil a new color at every $500 milestone after $4000!

$3500: Customization (UNLOCKED!)

We now have a Customization Add-on Option where you can choose what words to print on the front - your name, your character's name, etc. - unleash your creativity!

$4000: New Surprise Colors! (UNLOCKED!)

We unveiled all our new colors (charted below) and began unlocking them! 

 $4000-$6500: 6 New Colors (UNLOCKED!)

$7000+: New Color Reveals Using Spin Dice! (every $500 up to $9500)

We'll go live again with our D6 Spin Dice to unlock the next color from our metallic/shiny palette! We really are all about games here! Will your favorite win?! Follow along by liking PYE Games Facebook Page!

$10,000: NEW OIL SLICK RAINBOW COLOR AVAILABLE + one more surprise color revealed!

Rainbow dice with larger gradients, each die incorporating a different small portion of the rainbow.

 The Spin Dice are a great replacement for regular dice in your role playing campaigns!

Let's Talk About Dice

First off, we wanted to make these dice as fair as possible.  These are the things we do to ensure a random roll from each of these Gaming Gizmos:

1. Placing the range of numbers in a random order so they do not ascend or descend numerically.

2. Rounding the points that cause catching or sticking to certain numbers to get as smooth a spin as possible.

Secondly, here are some things you can do to ensure randomization and fairness:

1.  Spin multiple times for each roll, then check to see which number was rolled.  This way, you give the Gaming Gizmo multiple revolutions to land on a number you couldn't predict.

2. Vary the force put into each spin.

Lastly, we are aware that sometimes (~5%), the indicator arrow lands directly between two numbers and neither one can be determined as the result.  In this case, we suggest a hard rule that the number on the right is considered the result of the roll. 

The new D00 percentage dice! Included in the Complete Set Tier.

Gaming Gizmos

Introducing Gaming Gizmos, a fun way to keep track of those pesky numbers when you play board games! 

The small Gaming Gizmo is perfect for casual gaming and helps keep track of victory points, number of turns, or anything needing to be counted on a small scale!

The large Gaming Gizmo is great for tracking health points in card games like Magic: The Gathering!

We were having trouble keeping track of health and gold in the games we were designing and created these fun tools to keep things straight.  Funds from this Kickstarter will help us get more equipment to create these on a larger scale.


We will post updates on how exactly you will be able to choose your colors to customize your Gaming Gizmos to your taste.  Here's what we know so far:

1.  Supporting this project gives you access to a survey at the end of the Kickstarter.  it will ask you to choose the base color for each of your Gaming Gizmos (the main color). Then, it will ask you for its secondary color (the numbers and letters).

2.  The completed survey will be sent to us, and we will make them to your specifications.

Choosing Colors:

Available Original Colors:  

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, White, & Black

New Unlocked Colors:

Hot Magenta, Chocolate Gold, Onyx Black, Turquoise, Silver, & Gold

Retail display stand

Shipping

Shipping is free within the continental United States!  For international shipping, we've seen that it costs anywhere from $23-$25 to ship Gaming Gizmos, so we recommend backing us at higher levels to get more bang for your Euro, Ruble, or Dubloon. 

Add-ons (for any tier $8 and above)

If there are items you'd like to add to your reward, we have several options listed below. Simply select the tier you'd like, and when prompted to enter your pledge amount, add the amount of your selected add-ons to the pledge amount. (If you select the '$45 or more' tier and would like $40 altogether in add-on items, you'd enter $85 under the $45 tier). Once the campaign ends you'll receive a survey asking for shipping info, color selections, etc. This is where you will indicate which add-ons you paid for. You're also always welcome to direct message (DM) us with any questions or concerns. 

You may add as many tiers together as you'd like! Simply add them as you would any other add-ons. (US shipping still free for additional tiers. International shipping: each tier reward added to your original tier will cost an extra $10 in shipping). 

Other Available Add-ons:

A) $5 - Small Gaming Gizmo

B) $7 - Large Gaming Gizmo

C) $5 - D4 Spin Dice

D) $5 - D6 Spin Dice

E) $5 - D8 Spin Dice

F) $8 - D10 Spin Dice

G) $5 - D12 Spin Dice

H) $8 - D20 Spin Dice

I) $8 - D00 Spin Dice (%)

J) $5 - Customization!* (per name change) Ex: If you order a 7-piece set and change all 7 from "Gaming Gizmo" or "Spin Dice" to "Princess Unicorn," it will cost $5. If you change all 7 of them to Princess Unicorn's different sister's names, it will cost $35.

* Limit 2 lines of text, ten characters (including spaces) per line

Risks and challenges

As we get orders in, we will begin filling them. Based on the amount of orders received, there may be a delay in getting them shipped. In this case, those who gave us their orders first will be first in line to get them.
