Wow, those are pricy.  Pretty, but pricy. 

 

Wish they would stop calling it CNC Molding though, since it's actually CNC Milling that's being done... :p

Forgive the dumb question, what does the CNC part stand for?

Given what it takes to work with the stuff, I was surprised that the Titanium was NOT the most expensive option!

I didn't realize it was hard to work with but it would make sense, seeing that you can have it permanently get colour distortions with "relative ease" through various means.  It's also stupidly expensive in thee first place because of its unique properties. 

 

I'm surprised silver is even offered, most of the other metals are at least reasonably hard, but... Silver?  Not used to seeing silver as an option for something that will see regular wear and tear..

The silver just gains more character over time ^_^

The thing that bothers me about this, even though the creator has several small successful kickstarters behind them, is that there is no information about the company or where production is taking place.

 

The projects location says it's here in Vancouver Canada, but the project creator is in Winnipeg, yet whomever wrote the kickstarters text obviously does not have English as their first language.

 

This reminds me of other kickstarters Ive seen where it's turned out the creator is simply importing already existing product from china and promoting it on kickstarter as something new.

 

Even without the high prices this would be an easy pass for me.

The day I pay $300 for a single die is the day I officially have too much money and need to start a foundation to feed or house the homeless. 

 

Sheesh!  If anyone cares or thinks this is an investment, its approximately a 1000% markup on the price of the raw silver.  Its also very easy to work...

      If you pledge before November 14th 11:59 EST (17:59 Paris/CET, 16:59 London) you will get the Ezio the Assassin miniature for free (a $7 USD/ 7€ / 6 £ / $10 CAD value). The miniature will be available as an add-on after that and does not have any effect on the gameplay. 
      Cliquez ici pour une version française de cette page.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a tabletop board game with miniatures aiming to capture the essence of Assassin's Creed® and turn it into a fun, fully cooperative game for 1 to 4 players. 
      It is played in a campaign spanning several months in 1509 in which you play a small team of Assassins in charge of developing the Headquarters of the Brotherhood of Assassins in Venice, after Ezio Auditore da Firenze has defeated Cesare Borgia and his allies, between the events of Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed®: Revelations.
      Players will use their Assassin's skills, equipment and their own sense of tactics to complete various objectives while evading detection from the Guards.
      The campaign will pit you against Templars, let you explore unknown events of the Brotherhood in Venice, and determine the fate of the Brotherhood in the famous City of Masks.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a Triton Noir game under license by Ubisoft Entertainment.
      First time on Kickstarter ? Click here to see how it works.
      The game will be available in English or French. You will be able to choose your language in the pledge manager (after the Kickstarter campaign). In addition, we will offer free pdf files for German, Spanish and Italian languages with the rules, the campaign book and the cards' text.

      Hi friends.
      If you want to blow someone up and make your strategic game more realistic or may be - this is a new big dice project fot you!
      I will try to make a good set, possibly there will be two different sets.
      Till this project be alive - i`ll present new models and after this we`ll decide what to do. Also i want to see your reaction - if this project will be interesting for you.
      And one important thing - i do not advocate war and wish that such things are used only in games. Not in real life - be wise and humanity.
      Thanks to all.
