    GOAT Dice: Changing the way we Roll

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/goatdice/goat-dice-changing-the-way-we-roll What are GOAT Dice? Polyhedral 20 sided dice that produce a visual swirling effect when rolled. The effect is akin to animation or holographic. Don't believe me? Watch the video! Handmade and Artisanal. Each GOAT Dice is produced by hand by one person(me). The process takes 4 days total with many overnight curing processes. The dice are made from resin and secret proprietary ingredients to create the visual effect. Are these dice fair? The #1 question asked. The truth is, I don't know, but I think so. I've rolled these dice hundreds of times to shoot the very videos you see here as well as having played with them and they don't seem to be unfair based on my experience. They cannot be tested by the infamous salt water trick because they sink due to their higher than normal weight and density. They roll just like any other D20 with one small difference. The inertia from the spinning core causes a drama moment at the end of the roll, sometimes the inertia is strong enough to make the dice flip one more side and other times the inertia is not strong enough and it does a bounce back. This does not effect the randomness, but can create tension. Shipping. I've done shipping like this, on a good month working full time I can make 300 total GOAT Dice, so I've split that in half and adjusted the shipping accordingly. The early backers, the first 150 dice, I am expected to get out before the end of December and with any luck delivered before Christmas. Then I batch them into 3 months (450) for each quarter of 2020, so if you miss early backing then your delivery will be targeted for end of march, if you miss March, end of June and so on. Best case scenario all dice are shipped in half the time allotted. When one reward tier is out of stock, another will be added with +3 months on expected delivery. GOAT Admirer $1 You like what you see and want to support this project. You can adjust your pledge at anytime and choose a reward. If you adjust your pledge for a reward, I will do my best to place you in the correct shipping timeline based on your time of pledging. If you want dice, best practice would be to back one of the other tiers. Petting Zoo GOAT $25 You will receive a single GOAT Dice of your choosing. Mountain GOAT $45 You will receive two GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $22.50 for additional GOAT Dice up to 4, if you want more than 4 you are upgraded to GOAT Shepherd. (you may choose the same color twice or more) GOAT Shepherd $95 You will receive five GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $18.00 for additional GOAT Dice, no maximum.

  3. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1398817948/polyhedral-dice-advent-ure-calendar-1?ref=discovery_category_newest About Step inside traveler! Leave the wind and snow and troubles of the road outside and have a seat by the fire. Welcome to the Holiday Tavern where all adventurers are welcome and the merriment never ceases! Black Oak Workshop is proud to present our first Advent-ure Calendar! The holiday season is fast approaching and we have a dice themed advent calendar to help count down your season in dice-loving style. Inside this calendar you will find 24 custom polyhedral dice that feature all new, never before seen designs. They come in holiday themes and colors to lend some special magic to your season! This is a very simple project. Production samples of all aspects of the project have already been completed, reviewed and approved. Based on this and the timetable for production, we have decided to begin production - it is already underway! As such, this is not an open-ended production run and we have capped the number of units available on the project. There is a reserve quantity to satisfy projected retail orders, but essentially this is it. We feel great about this project! At the outset, we are already farther along in the process than normal. The Advent-ure Calendar is designed to stand up and be used to test roll your dice! The back folds down to reveal a warm and welcoming tavern interior and you can even roll your dice on the tavern floor. Plus, there is some cool hidden stuff in the tavern interior illustration! Below are some photos of the actual production samples. Note the dice in the photos are NOT the ones inside the calendar, though they are the same size (we included them for scale purposes). The interior features a vacuum formed tray that safely holds each die in the assigned location until you break the perforation on the related day. Now is your chance to secure one of these for yourself! Quantities are strictly limited and, while we plan to return again next year with another in the series, this version of the calendar and the dice inside will never be produced again. We are offering these calendars in quantities of 1-3 (by reward levels). Additional units will not be available in the pledge manager as we must have a firm handle on quantities post funding period. If some units are available after this project has fulfilled and retail orders have been satisfied, we will list those on our main website. While we are steadfastly choosing not to reveal images of the dice inside to preserve the magic and fun of opening an advent calendar, we can tell you the following: All the dice are larger Black Oak sized dice - these are big and fun to roll! All the dice feature entirely new custom designs and they are not available anywhere else! These dice are exclusive to this project! All the dice are unique - there are no duplicates inside! All the dice inside feature either solid, swirl or glitter styles! There are three 7 dice RPG sets included. Each set is different from the others and features a matching theme reflected in the design and color choices. There are three additional d20s that each feature unique colors and designs. The package art embraces an 'adventurer's tavern' theme and features beautiful artwork to help bring this theme to life. In addition to everything else, a bonus surprise waits inside! That's all we're saying!! Collectible! Except for two d20s inside the calendar (see Special Singles below), none of these will ever be available outside of this project.This is it! A Sample of our Dice We always strive to provide a fantastic product to our backers while also putting a focus on value. This project is no exception. We have $60 retail value of our dice within the calendar (plus a cool surprise) and everything is presented in our first formal retail packaging that doubles as a fully functional advent calendar. We commissioned the Fraim Bros to do our box art and we feel they really brought the magic to this project!

    Nuclear Dice

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/901436411/nuclear-dice?ref=discovery About 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.

  8. About Hello! And welcome to Knot Dice Squared - 26 more knot dice in three new designs for you to combine with the original for more inspiration. Create larger and more intricate Celtic knots while playing with these amazing dice! Add some new twists to your knot dice games...Include more friends...Design larger beautiful patterns...Play through an entirely new set of puzzles...Challenge yourself further with Knot Dice Squared. Shipping is free in the US, and low worldwide. This project is EU, Canada, Australia, and China Friendly. If you're already familiar with Knot Dice, you can skip ahead to the next section. Knot Dice are big beautiful dice, a forest green pearlized acrylic with indented silver lines. The designs are continuous around the entire die. They don't have numbers on the sides, but placing them side-by-side forms amazing Celtic knot patterns. Some enjoy having them around just to make designs. But they also can be used to play a large number of games and puzzles. The original Knot Dice set includes rules to 12 games and 7 types of puzzles, with dozens of individual puzzles. There are cooperative games, competitive games, speed games, puzzle games, storytelling games... Individual descriptions of each of the games and puzzles are available on the original Knot Dice Kickstarter page, and full rules and video instructions are on the Black Oak Games Knot Dice page. the original Knot Dice, some of the new Knot Dice, and a design using both I definitely recommend playing with the original Knot Dice first, before diving into the expansion, so if you order the Complete set (with both), don't open the expansion until you've gotten familiar with the original! The original is also available separately right now on the Black Oak Games web site. Knot Dice 2? No, this is expanding Knot Dice to four dice total, so it's Knot Dice Squared! These new dice allow you to create a wide variety of beautiful new designs, they come with an entirely new book of puzzles, and they add some new twists and increase the player counts in some games. The four dice are: crossed (the original), squared, rounded, and bridge. Crossed dice have all paths crossing when they go over an edge; squared and rounded dice have all paths parallel when they go over an edge; and bridge dice have both parallel and crossed paths going over the edges, enabling the original knot dice to connect with the new knot dice. (I'll go into more detail about this in the first update.) The dice are still 20mm, much larger than normal 16mm dice: They still have that great hefty weight to them. And yes, the lines are still continuous around the dice.

    Timaze: D20 Dice

    For those who really want to throw their money around!
  10. About this project The invention of dice can be traced back almost 5000 years. However, the dice you see before you now, retain a much deeper history than that. Crafted from the world's oldest wood, these dice are carbon dated to be 50,000 years old - 10 times older than the invention of dice themselves! This is your chance to own a rare artefact of our planet's immense history! Introducing the most fascinating gaming accessory in the world... The Wood: Ancient Kauri Ancient Kauri is the oldest and most exotic wood in the world. Not one tree was cut down to harvest it. Tsunamis levelled the mighty Kauri forests during the Stone Age, leaving the trees buried just below the surface of the ground and preserved in the water of peat swamps. The Ancient Kauri wood has neither petrified nor turned to coal. This underground resting place, sealed from the air, became a perfectly balanced cocoon that preserved the giant trees for 50,000 years. The wood used to craft the Ancient Dice is sourced from the awesome people over at Ancient Wood Ltd. All wood comes with certificates of aunthenticity. The natural iridescence of this incredible wood resonates the historical significance behind these dice. There is a very limited amount of Ancient Kauri on the planet. These dice shift the barrier between present day, and The Stone Age. To own one is to own a genuine prehistoric artefact; a glowing relic of truly ancient history. 50,000 Years Old To give some context as to just how old these dice are, here’s some info on how different things were here on Earth, when the trees used to carve these dice fell: Population was less than 10000 – humans faced extinction. Spoken and written language did not yet exist. The Ice Age persisted. Humans lived in the Stone Age - coexisting with Neanderthals. Europe's population was 0. Since the trees fell, the moon has orbited Earth 675,925 times.

  13. About Over the last two years Halfsies Dice have taken the dice market by storm in the form of 7-die RPG sets, but up until this time there has been no option available for Halfsies Dice in bulk. In fact, to date, Kickstarter has never had any campaign for dedicated bulk dice sets ...and frankly, it's eaten away at us this whole time. "What about Fireball!?", I think. "What about Warhammer!?", I think. Well, the time has come to appease the fist, and fill it with the heaviest, densest, and most well balanced resin dice on the planet! Time for some serious dice chucking! This campaign is unique and special in the following ways: This is a Kickstarter-exclusive product. You won't be finding these at your FLGS post-campaign. Production stock is limited. Pledge early to claim the sets you want before we run out. You'll "Pledge" and fill out the "Pledge Manager" (PM) in the same day. Pledges are final at time of submission and can't be altered. Best of all: Rewards ship in under a month. Shipping: April 2018 ...guaranteed!
  14. Yeah I know. Another dice case/dice kickstarter. I like this one though. Small size. Unique design.
  15. About Hi friends. This is the best dice project you have seen ever! Do you like to play board games, or like dice, or like horror. This Set is for you! First printed protoype Finished 3D printed protoype 35mm & 45mm The first metal model will be ready in a few days! Many of you knows the work of the writer Lovecraft. Usually Lovecraft referred to ancient books containing secrets that a person should not know. Most of the references were fictional, but some occult works existed in reality. The combination of fictitious documents with real ones in one context allowed the first to seem real. Lovecraft gave only general references to such books (mainly for injecting the atmosphere) and rarely made a detailed description. The most famous of these fictional manuscripts is his "Necronomicon", about which the writer spoke most. His explanations about this text were so well thought out that many people still believe in the reality of this book, and this allows some to cash in on the ignorance of others. 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model) 3D (render model)

    Dice of Rolling

    About this project It seems like no matter how many dice you buy, you still never have enough d6s... meanwhile, your collection of unnecessary d20s keeps getting bigger. Dice of Rolling are not rocket science. They’re just regular dice that come in the amounts you actually need, and they use color for more than just decoration. One simple purchase, and you’re good to go for most of the situations you’ll encounter in the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. And since each dice type is a different color, you'll always grab the right ones. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but nobody else is doing it so we're bringing it to Kickstarter. This is the dice set we’ve always wanted for our table, and with your help we can bring it to tables everywhere! We’re keeping the rewards real simple. You can pledge to receive 1, 2, 4, or 20 sets, and each set will include the same 29 color-coded dice + microfiber dice bag.
  17. About Project Background: With every project we embark on, we always set out to make top quality products that you just can't find elsewhere. We enjoy pushing the boundaries of everyday items and turn ordinary objects into extraordinary objects. We typically like to work with Copper & Silver, but in order to form these objects, we first have to make a forming die. In order to make it be able to form these metals, we have to use a very strong, special steel that will never bend or dis-form. To achieve this, we have to use a ultra strong metal alloy, Tool Steel. The Strongest Dice Ever Made!!! We want to set out and push the boundaries a little and create a dice that you truly will never be able to destroy! A dice that will put all other to shame and will literally be able to "crush" the competition! Is it really necessary to create a dice that you would never be able to destroy, it's debatable. But one could then argue that any dice besides a white plastic injected dice is not necessary either! I for one find the dice I use while playing games helps emerge me into the game and even give me that added confidence. Imagine taking these dice to your game night with your friends and "rolling" them out! Knowing that your dice is no match for your opponents, makes it half the fun and boosts excitement for the game! Designs: We currently have three designs to choose from, Traditional Pips, Dragon, and Skull designs. Each of these designs have The Copper Kingdom shield logo as the one side. You may choose from any of these three styles and if you're getting multiple dice, you may mix and match styles to make up your custom dice collection! Style choices will be collected on the survey. Three Style of Choose From: Skulls, Pips & Dragons How The Dice Are Made: In order to create these dice, a combination of precision machining as well as hands on labor is needed. I will be commissioning a local machine shop to create the tool steel cubes. Once I have the special tool steel cubes, I will be individually engraving each dice. Each side will be individually carved, having to be hand turned six times (one for each side). The process to carving all six sides of the dice will take almost an hour per dice due to the strength of the steel and the small size of the engraver in order to create the detail. Unlike other materials that can allow the images to be stamped or formed with the designs, this steel won't allow it. From this point each dice will need to go into a special oven in order to harden the high end tool steel to its full strength. They will get heated to 1750 degrees for an hour, followed by a series of controlled lower step down temps to make the metal fully treated and as hard as possible. The final step will be sand blasting and polishing the dice to the desired finish. Hardening & Tempering Process for these Dice takes 24 hours! How Strong Are These Dice? I will be having these dice made from a high quality Tool Steel. This is the same type of steel that the US Mint uses to stamp coins and is able to withstand hundreds of tons of pressure before it bends or breaks. The steel dice start out only a little stronger than most other steels, but after the designs are carved into the faces, they are forged into an oven at almost 1800 degrees! This process of heat treating and conditioning the special steel takes over 18 hours! Once this process is done however, the steel is incredibly strong. While it may not be be 100% indestructible, for all practical purposes it is. You can drop them, smash them, try to crush them in a high powered press, run over then with your car, hit them with a sledge hammer, and they will still hardly show a scratch!

    Wooden d6 Dice

    About this project For as long as I can remember I've been making things. I am always working on a project of some kind. Lately, I've been making aluminum dice. Both standard d6's and also hex d6's. Working with aluminum is very much like working with wood. It cuts, sands, and finishes mostly the same. So I made a set of wood dice. They were really nice, almost as nice as the ones available online now. With a little bit of help I can get a few things to make them incredibly nice, and for less. I'm not looking to make a ton of money here, just looking to make some nice dice for all the great gamers out there. If there is interest I can add pledge levels for aluminum dice and also acrylic resin dice as well. They all work the same and can be made into really nice d6 dice! Add Ons! Since I can fit multiple sets of dice into a single box with no increase in shipping just increase your bid by the amount of any extra sets you would like and then send me a message with the information for the extra sets. D4 Pledge Level Wood Selection D6 Pledge Level Wood Selection Note: The barrel wood is just basic white oak but is from whisky barrels and will come with a certificate of authenticity. D8 Pledge Level Wood Selection Along with the wood, you will also be able to choose the color of the pips as well! Whatever color you would like!

    Too Many Bones: Undertow

    New 'Expansion' for Too Many Bones. The game is a lot of fun, but definitely has a pretty steep learning curve when trying to figure out all the dice and timing of things.
  21. About this project My previous projects have focused on mini dice but now I would like to expand my offerings. I have always loved big dice and finally decided to make my own. Before GEN CON this year I did a small run of 55mm Monster Mega dice as a sample and have decided to make more. Minimum order quantities for dice are high and make it cost prohibitive to offer new items. This project will allow me to raise the funds required to cover mold cost and meet minimum order quantities. To start I will be offering two color choices: Molten Silver Molten Gold 55mm Scale
  22. About this project 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. Monsters Overview

    HEX: Magically Minimal Dice

    About this project HEX is a new kind of dice that merges the best of magic and minimal design to create an all new gaming experience! The Ultimate in Minimalist Design Each HEX die is machined from two standard 16mm dice blanks. The finished die is placed in an acetone environment to smooth out any ridges or imperfections (note: the prototype is not final and has a visible seam, the real deal will look great, I promise!) Features 21 LED's 16mm Standard Dice Size Ultra-low-power Accelerometer (MMA8491Q) Ultra-low-power Microcontroller (MSP430G2101) 2 LR44 Batteries Leave it to Chance! Get skill and psychology out of the way -- there's no way to tell which side is which in HEX mode until the roll is over! Two LED Modes HEX mode - the die remains blank until the roll has been made, then the result fades into view. Right now I have the opposing side light up too, should that be in the production version? Full Color mode - all LEDs activate when the die is shaken and remain on for about 10s after the roll LED Color Options Based on feedback I am introducing color options! You'll now be able to opt for single color LEDs (all green, all orange, or all red) if you're not too keen on the standard multicolor configuration. You'll be able to choose the desired quantity of each type if you order multiple dice! Long lasting performance The microcontroller, accelerometer, and battery chemistry were selected for ultra low standby current consumption and will easily last a year of casual gaming and a shelf life of several years. However, avid users may need to replace the batteries every few months due to high LED light use. (Note: the dice may be opened with heat to soften the glue) Moving Forward Although the current prototype is good, there are some adjustments that I would still like to make before production. Keeping the lights in well-defined circles so they don't bleed across the surface of the dice. I plan to accomplish this by using reverse mount LEDs that would shine through holes in the circuit board Optimizing the program logic to ensure glitch-free operation Potentially having the shell of the dice injection molded instead of milled from off-the-shelf dice blanks (this might also allow for a snap fit enclosure for easier battery servicing) Of course, I look forward to incorporating feedback from you all as well!
  24. So I know this will probably date me, but does anyone else remember coloring your dice numbers with crayons? I even seem to remember getting a white crayon in the original blue and cyan (or whatever the color is) DnD boxes:) Those were fun times:) I may even have those dice around somewhere in the garage:) A LOT of dice (I like collecting dice haha)
