Top Shelf Quality

Each die is laser etched and hand painted, providing detail and quality rarely seen in the dice industry.

Our paint is highly durable and designed to withstand the rigors of enthusiastic dice rolling.

All dice are 16mm standard (opposite sides add up to seven). Interested in seeing more details? Here is a link to close-up shots of every design: DiceEmpire.com.

What Gamers Are Saying

"If I'm going to own some dice I want them to have character, and these dice have plenty of character." - Jake Richmond, RPG Game Designer & Comic Artist, Modest Medusa.

"I'm REALLY impressed with the detail and the gorgeous designs. This is a no-brainer for upgrading your favorite game." - Ryan Laukat, Game Designer & Publisher, Red Raven Games. Also, now Kickstarting - City of Iron: Experts and Engines

"High contrast, delightfully designed. A lovely addition to feed your dice addiction." - Tyler Tinsley, Game Designer & Paper Craft Designer.

"Dice Empire brand dice are finely detailed, easy to read, and whimsically designed. These dice are functional art." - Dave Myers, Game Designer.

In the Press

"…couldn’t help but get a little mesmerized by all the sweet designs of these dice!" - Theology of Games 

"…more customized 6D than you’ll know what to do with" - Troll in the Corner 

"The folks at Tinderbox Entertainment have decided to help spruce up the available range of D6’s by adding unique and custom sets for players to purchase." - Initiative Tabletop 

"Was in the 24th century, such as custom-made, Europe Trump · QR code hazard mark the design of the dice 'Dice Empire'" - Gigazine (via Google Translate)        

“Beautifully designed dice. You’re a nerd, you want these. I mean, I’m a nerd and I want them.” - C.H.E.W. Games

In traditional dice bucket fashion we are allowing you to mix and match the type of dice you choose. All our rewards allow you to add-on additional dice to your pledge. Once the project funding is successful, we will send you a questionnaire asking you to choose the design for each die.

Dice Reward Tiers

We have reward tiers for 1 - 100 dice. PLUS, you may add more dice as add-ons at the rates listed in the selected tier. (Tip: There is a slight price break for pledges with more dice.)

Dice Bag Reward Tier

Our handmade dice bags are made with soft black flannel and durable golden stitching. The bags are free-standing and comfortably hold 40 Dice Empire brand dice. This reward tier includes one bag and 10 dice of your choice. Each additional die is $2.00.

Design Your Own Die Reward Tier

If you love dice and would like to design one yourself, we will help you! We'll need a black and white image file of your designs for each side of the die. We will work with you to make sure that the designs look good on the dice and recommend changes, if needed. You may also choose the die and paint color out of those we have available. Dice colors include: white, ivory, black, red, yellow, green or blue. With paint colors, the sky is the limit. We can mix enough for your personal die run.

10 copies of your custom die will be sent to you. Additional dice (either of your design or any other Dice Empire design) can be added for $1.80 per die.

Legal Stuff: The images must not be copyrighted (except by you) and must not violate any applicable laws, either of the USA or of the locale to which the dice are to be shipped.

International pledges: please add $1.00 for every 10 add-on dice.

Designer Die Reward Tier

You supply an idea or description for each side of the die. We will create designs as per your descriptions and will work with you to make sure that the designs meet with your approval. You may also choose the die and paint color out of those we have available. Dice colors include: white, ivory, black, red, yellow, green or blue. With paint colors, the sky is the limit. We can mix enough for your personal die run.

10 copies of your custom die will be sent to you. Additional dice (either of your design or any other Dice Empire design) can be added for $1.80 per die.

Legal Stuff: The images must not be copyrighted (except by you) and must not violate any applicable laws, either of the USA or of the locale to which the dice are to be shipped.

International pledges: please add $1.00 for every 10 add-on dice.

International Shipping

The additional $1.00 shipping pledged per 10 dice add-on is in addition to the flat international shipping fee at the bottom of each pledge level description.

This additional $1.00 shipping pledge per 10 dice add-on is rounded down to the nearest 10 dice (so there is no additional pledge needed for up to 9 add-on dice).

DICE

You may add additional dice to reward tiers "FIRST OF MANY" and higher for $2.00, $1.90, or $1.80 per die depending on your selected tier.

DICE BAG

The Dice Bag may be added to reward tiers "FIRST OF MANY" and higher for $9.00 per bag. Add as many Dice Bags as you like! It won't affect your shipping charges.

 Add-on Tutorial

                                                  

The team at Tinderbox Entertainment is comprised of around a dozen dedicated video game developers, a few of whom have been using their off hours and weekends to design and manufacture dice. It makes a nice break from our daily hardcore video game development tasks.

We have been making our own dice for a few months now and thought we would share our designs with the world outside of our normal gaming circles.

We stand by the quality of our products and hope that you will back our project, but please consider also helping us get the word out.

Risks and challenges

The only risks involved in this campaign are possible shipping delays. We will do everything possible to ship rewards to backers by the estimated delivery date, but the final shipping date will ultimately depend on the quantity of rewards we need to send out.
