I've talked with Adam Hackett of Metallic Dice Games and he's agreed to work with me to provide dice for all the stretch goals for this campaign. They make some really nice dice and though it almost seems a shame to modify them in any way... they're going to make some seriously sweet Dice of Curiously Strong Attraction.
Here's what Metallic Dice Games has to say about this campaign for Dice of Curiously Strong Attraction:
"Hal Zucati's Dice of Curiously Strong Attraction are a new way to show off and use beautiful gaming dice."

Norse Foundry - ADDED March 21st
Norse foundry has joined forces with me to bring you an option to just polyhedral sets, they have added their COMMANDER PACK of 5x D6 SOLID METAL DICE in 5 cool finishes available as sets you can choose from. These sets are available in place of any other set of SOLID METAL DICE dice available in this campaign. Want to mix it up? Now you can. But wait, there's only 5 dice in this set... Right you are, that's why if you choose the Commander pack of 5x D6 dice. You will recieve TWO Commander packs for a total of 10x D6 dice. AND YOU PICK WHICH TWO FINISHES YOU WANT.
So to summarize:
1. Substitute any 7 piece SOLID METAL DICE set for two 5 piece sets of D6 SOLID METAL DICE (That's 10 dice instead of 7)
2. Pick the finishes you want for each of the two sets of 5.
3. All pledge levels stay the same. You simply select these sets of D6 Dice in the end of campaign survey along with each sets finish in place of one or more sets of 7 piece polyhedral dice sets, and your all set.
What are the Dice of Curiously Strong Attraction?
High-quality dice with curiously strong magnets together form:
Dice of Curiously Strong Attraction
Bright colored dice custom machined to hold a .25 x .25 neodymium magnet capable of holding 8oz of vertical gravity resistance on a fridge door that's moderately clean and goo free. These are not your standard magnets either, they're Grade N48 through thickness magnetized each capable of 6.1 lbs of pull force. They're triple nickel plated for strength and beauty.
Ok, I admit it, I had to look up what N48 really means...
From this article: HERE
"This number represents the maximum energy product in Mega-Gauss Oersteds (MGOe) where 1MGOe (cgs units) equals 7958kJ/m3 (SI units). The range available used to be N24 up to N52. The lower grades are no longer made and the range now starts at around N30 or N33. N50 is the highest readily available grade. N52 is possible but only in certain sizes."
Ok, so, like... N48 is almost the strongest available magnet. Ok ,now I understand why I can wear a pair of D20's for earrings. (not that I do, or would... never mind.)
How much force?
What has this Hal Zucati guy done previously?
You may remember me from such Kickstarter projects as: The INTERNET (prop-replica) and Dice Base Zero. Two of my recent projects which both funded to 100% and either have been completely fulfilled or are close to completion. Check out the updates and comments to get a good picture of how I like to run my Kickstarter campaigns. Simple, clean, and professional. Not to mention the fast fulfillment.
These dice are custom machined to fit their inserted magnets perfectly and flush. Unlike other projects you may have seen where large chunks of the dice were removed or the magnet sticks way out of the die, these dice are 100% (minus the magnet pocket) intact and fully usable as dice, magnets or whatever else you'd like to employ them as. (I'm partial to using them as note holders in my workshop.)
All dice will be milled on the "1" or equivalent space and all dice still roll and lie flat on the face where the magnet lives. I did not do that for these prototypes as I honestly hadn't thought of it before I made these. Doesn't change how well these work but it does change which numbers are displayed.
These dice come in a variety of colors and pledge levels, from single random colored selections to full and multiple sets of dice.
Things you can do with Dice of Curiously Strong Attraction

Risks and challenges
Risks are minimal as I am, as you know from past projects, a master craftsman. No late fulfillment, no excuses, no delays.
You get your reward when and how you picked it on or before the date indicated at your pledge level.
Delivery of materials may delay progress if I cannot get the correct dice in the correct quantities. I have chosen the most popular colors however and all major dice manufacturers have these colors as open stock, so it shouldn't be an issue.
I plan to run this campaign back to back with my Dice Base Zero campaign, which I'm finishing up now here on Kickstarter. The DBZ campaign will be fulfilled by the end of march, before this campaign ends.
Additionally I plan to run another dice campaign here on Kickstarter: The DICE of DEATH and DISMEMBERMENT, which will start towards the beginning or middle of April.
All these projects are designed to be staggered so that fulfillment for one is over before its time to work on the fulfillment of another, and in the case of the D.O.D.A.D. campaign fulfillment will be 6-10 weeks from the end of the campaign, so there's no chance of overlap there.
Still, things happen that are unexpected and unforeseen delays may occur. I have and will do everything in my power to prevent these things from affecting your rewards. So far so good. 100% on time and on-schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
