About this project
Our goal has been to create some of the best quality and unique tabletop game pieces. We set out last year wanting to make unique, hand crafted solid copper dice. Not only were we able to make those a reality, but thanks to Kickstarter, we've been able to create other amazing dice & game pieces over the past year. Since we first created our solid copper dice, we have had numerous requests for us to make some with silver plating and even PURE Silver, so let's try to make it happen!
Are these dice over the top? YES! But let's be honest here, isn't any metal or ornately designed dice? If the point was only to just generate a random number, we could all use plain white plastic dice. These dice, along with all the dice we have created are not only intended to generate your random numbers, but do it in style and help submerse you into the game.
About the Silver Plated Dice:
Underneath the lustrous silver finish, the core of these dice are made out of solid, pure copper. By making them out of solid copper, it give the added weight and density to the dice to give them that heavy metal feel. Each dice is antiqued and darkened in the area where the numbering is stamped to define their look. These dice are then given a special thick plating of 999 silver to give them a beautiful look. The final step is to coat them in a clear finish to keep them from tarnishing over time and retaining that beautiful silver finish.
About the SOLID Silver Dice:
Making these dice will no doubt be a difficult task, but we're always up for a challenge! We already have a source lined up to get the 999+ fine silver from. To create these dice, we will first need to make a cube mold in order to pour liquid silver into. Once the rough cube is cooled, we will then form in into a perfect cube using a special die set we are creating and under pressure, the silver will take the shape of the cube form. The dice will then be stamped by hand with the desired numbering designs. We have had a lot of requests for this, however the setup cost to make the pure silver cubes is very expensive and we need your help!
Each of these dice measure a standard 16mm on each side. The Copper & Silver plated dice weight around 1 1/4 ounces and the Solid Silver dice will weigh about 1 1/2 ounces.
Handcrafted. Quality. Consistency.
I've always been told since I was young, that if something is worth making, it's worth making well!. While I will state that these are not casino quality dice that are 100% balanced, we strive to make sure that each dice that's handcrafted is the best quality we can make! We've had a few messages of people asking how balanced our dice are, so we figured we would do a little video clip of one of our dice spinning. You decide!
You can choose from any the seven different designs that we have for EACH of the dice you order (as well as any stretch goals that's met). Your design requests will be collected on the survey after the campaign ends.
New Stretch Goal Designs:
Now you can also choose from the 3 new stretch goal designs! We now are able to offer Bone Numbers, Dragon Prints, & an amazing marked number, "1" side for the pure silver dice!
Add additional dice to your pledge:
If you need a specific number of dice, you may add additional dice onto any pledge level.
- For Silver Plated Dice please add $12 to you pledge for each dice.
- For PURE Silver Dice, please add $55 to your pledge for each dice.
We have a few stretch goals that we are hopping to achieve. We would love to get enough funding together to make some new die stamps for the dice. Once these stretch goals are met, we will post examples of the new designs. We are hoping to use the money raised from this campaign to go towards making them happen!
$3,500: Two new dice designs to choose from (NOW AVAILABLE)
$5,000: Create setup for Gold Plated Dice (NOW AVAILABLE)
$10,000: FREE Plated Dice to backers of EVERY Level!!!
We are also offering our 9" x 12" leather mats to use with these dice. These mats are designed out of very thick, high quality leather and designed to protect both your tabletop as well as your dice. These can be pledged for by themselves for added onto any pledge level for $30.
Thanks for your Support:
Once again, thank you to everyone who has been supporting our ideas here on Kickstarter. We are a husband & wife team and have been having a blast making our ideas a reality. If anyone has any questions regarding these, please send us a message and we would be happy to help!

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk with this project is purchasing the silver. Since the price of silver changes on a daily basis (even throughout the day), it will be important for us to keep up to date on silver pricing. We intend to purchase the silver right after the campaign is over to reduce this market risk. We already have a supplier lined up to acquire the 999 Fine Silver & Silver Plating, and since we have made other dice and Kickstarter projects, we don't believe we should have any issues with this.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
