What are Inverse Dice?
All of Sly Kly Design's Dice are CNC machined from solid metal alloy(s). The precision of these dice comes from being CNC machined one by one. This process is far superior to molded plastic, molded metal, or plated dice.
These Dice are also Perfectly Balanced
The exact amount of material that is taken off once side of the dice is also taken off the opposite side to keep them perfectly balanced and random/fair dice.
Inverse Dice in particular are machined in a unique way. Instead of milling out the pips and numbers directly the mill machines around the pips and numbers to give these dice amazing contrast and a very tactile feel. So they are very easy to read.
There are Several Styles, Colors, and Materials to Choose from:
Solid Dice - Regular Pips and Inverse Pips
Solid Dice - Regular Numbers and Inverse Numbers
Floating Face Dice - Regular Pips and Inverse Pips
Floating Face Dice - Regular Numbers and Inverse Numbers
Anodized Aluminum Color Choices - Red, Black, Blue, Light Blue, Green, Purple, Orange, Yellow and Clear/Silver
Other Material Choices - Copper, Stainless Steel, and Brass
Can I get more than one Reward?
Simply increase your pledge by the cost of the additional desired reward level. If your are a US backer it does not matter the reward you select because all US backers get free shipping.
For international backers please select the reward with the highest shipping cost and then add-on the price of the additional reward that you desire.
Please Note that Early Bird Levels can not be an Add-on!
They are Limited!
After the project you will receive an invite to BackerKit where you will be able to specify the color(s), style, and type of dice you pledged for and select the additional rewards you increased your pledge for.
What are Floating Face Dice?
Floating Face Dice are precision machined from a solid piece of metal into 2 pieces. The middle of the die is loose and moves freely, but will not come out. See images below where I have highlighted the Outside Cage in red and the Inside Floating Piece in Gray.
These Cool and Unique dice are made by machining a circle on each of the six sides of the dice. Each side is machined down until it intersects the other machined sides. By doing this the center is now able to float around and be separate from the outer cage. Currently I am only offering these in the size of 16 mm. The Aluminum dice will be milled down and shaped and then be anodized. That way the pips and the floating feature machined into each side will show off the bare aluminum and give a really good contrast to the anodized surface!

Risks and challenges
Depending on the number of dice that are ordered will vastly determine the time to produce all of the dice as well as ship all of them to the backers.
I plan on being as transparent as possible and provide regular updates because I know how it feels to not get a response to a burning question.
With my background in Product Development and being a Mechanical Engineer I know how to meet deadlines and expectations. But if something were to arise that is going to delay production or delivery I have been in that boat before and know how to push Manufacturers into pushing my item to the top of the list of priorities.
This is my 3rd Metal Dice project and 100% of my backers get their rewards. I have a solid and firm relationship with my material suppliers and machine shops after 2 successful dice projects.
