What is The Monster Dice?

Hi Kickstarter!


This time we made the coolest dice on Earth. Do you love playing board games? Then, our Monster Dice will make your time more enjoyable! Also, for both board game players and other people, it will be a marvelous decoration. The weight and visual pleasure will satisfy your appetite much more! Monster Dice will definitely stimulate your imagination while playing games or even watching the game.   

  

  

Why we chose Monsters for the design? 

When we were spending time playing board games, we instantly came up with one idea. There are a lot of cool board game figures, but, why can't the dice be cool? Since we love bizarre things, we wanted to make the monsters permeate well on the dice. We were inspired by monsters that are well known to us in various myths. Each monster was redesigned by our own feelings. However, since we could not destroy the balance of the dice, forming monster dice had a lot of limitations.

The weight of the dice should be the same in all directions without leaving the corner of the base frame.

That was an impossible task by hand, so we actively used 3D simulation.

Monsters Overview 

 

  

Maintaining Balance 

Since monsters have to be crafted in a degree that maintains equal balance(probability) of the dice, the whole process has been challenging.

We have created a well balanced dice through computer simulations and 3D printing prototype tests. 

However, the balance may be slightly tilted compared to other normal dice due to complex process of designing monsters on the dice.

If you help us to successfully accomplish our campaign, we will be able to complete the perfect balance of Monster Dice by controlling the weight of inner part of the dice. 

D10 Python Dice is the least balanced among other dice. The reason is because D10 Python Dice model has the most decorative shape which makes it harder to equalize the balance of the dice. However. we gained confidence that we can make this dice more balanced from final sample test of D10 Pyhon model.

Christmas Delivery

I strongly believe that there are numerous backers who want to receive their products before Christmas.

We'll do our best to deliver products to backers in time.  

However, for the perfect quality of the products, a minimal amount of time is also required. 

We now know that the delivery can be delayed during the last months of the year. 

So, we decided to offer a special 'Christmas Delivery' service to backers.

If you make a pledge at 'Christmas Delivery' reward, you will receive products before Christmas with no delay. 

The first finished product is released on December 1st.

We plan to receive the initial supply first and send it to backers by air express. 

This will inevitably involve additional costs.

However, it is a minimal cost and we will cover the extra costs. 

This service is only available for 400 backers. 

If you want to meet our gorgeous Monster Dice before Christmas, please pledge at 'Christmas Delivery' reward. 

Important Info 

  • There are three colors available (Copper, Silver, and Titanium Black)
  • Information regarding shipment fee is all provided in a pledge box)
  • Please carefully read the information in each pledge box before you pledge.
  • If you have further questions about us, please leave a comment below. We will carefully check your comments.

 

Risks and challenges

Production & Risk .

We have long manufacturing experiences.

As a result of such experiences, we have high considerations of how to produce products from the planning process, and design.

We control the whole production process and final process directly.

Therefore, we think that there is a little chance of low quality problems in producing high quality Monster Dice.

However, in the first kickstarter campaign, we lacked experience with bulk shipments, so we were not able to deal with unexpected situations.

This time, however, we have prepared various shipping plans so as not to repeat such mistakes.

There will be no problems for your safe delivery.
