Title: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (12:43:09/02-01-16)
Some interesting new dice-focused Kickstarters:

Cast Metal Gaming Dice (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/837745346/cast-metal-gaming-dice?ref=users)

Darn you (https://youtu.be/2Dvggfv3T7c)! <sigh>

Why are dice so shiny, fun and rolly?  ::)

Funny...when I pose that very question to my wife, she looks at me like I have 2d6 heads ;D

Game Box for Infinity the Game (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2097161002/game-box-for-infinity-the-game)
This is designed for Infinity, The Game and the box could work for many games but the 12 pound level should be of interest to any Runners. Ir is a cyberpunk dice roller.

If you play any miniatures games than look at Infinity. It is a Sci-Fi, cyberpunk, anime mash up that uses a small number of figures in squad based skirmish games where both players act all the time (action / reaction within the same phase)

It's been a long while since I posted anything about dice...time to rectify that ;)

Precision Polyhedral Floating Face Dice (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/slykly/precision-polyhedral-foating-face-dice?ref=users)

I counter your attempt to draw me into another dice KS with these two Kickstarters!

Mega Gemstone d20 Dice (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/579878362/mega-gemstone-d20-dice-35mm-now-engraved)

The Dice Tool (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1979384538/the-dice-tool-the-first-titanium-dice-shaped-multi) - not technically a die, but close enough!
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (10:54:58/07-17-16)
Bastard!! ;D

Actually had seen both of these, but not really to my tastes. ;)
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: cantrip on (01:08:55/07-18-16)
Perhaps - something a little different  (http://kck.st/29oC2dc)then.  ;)
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (07:24:46/07-18-16)
Nice ;D I have to admit, that this one completely baffles me...just don't get the appeal of it at all. But, then, that's one of the beauties of KS... ;)
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: cantrip on (23:34:00/07-18-16)
Oh, agreed on this one! But it is interesting to say the least -- it would be kind of neat to send up your own dice, just to say they've been in 'space' - though I'd rather they go up on something like something from SpaceX or even better my own personal sub-orbital! Sorry got sucked into the SR realm again...it happens. ;D
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: cantrip on (10:33:47/08-10-16)
It is time for another Dice Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/norsefoundry/wondrous-dice-precision-6061-aluminum-multi-colore)!  ;D
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (11:09:11/08-10-16)
Nice one. Don't understand why their d6 have rounder edges...all the other polyhedrals are nice and angled.

I don't mind the aesthetic on this KS (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/slykly/precision-polyhedral-foating-face-dice?ref=profile_starred)...maybe the floating face design balances it out.
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: cantrip on (23:50:41/08-11-16)
Nice - those look very cool too!

I actually like some of the steampunk themed dice they have on their store of the KS I posted as well.

And as a complete aside, I recently started getting some FATE dice - as if I need another type of dice to get.  ::)
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: cantrip on (00:10:54/08-12-16)
There you did it again - I had to pick up some Precision Polyhedral Floating Face Dice (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/slykly/precision-polyhedral-foating-face-dice)!  ;)
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: cantrip on (09:21:58/08-23-16)
And another one (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/13-and-15-sided-dice-d13-and-d15-w-dcc-and-other-s) if you are into non-standard dice. I'm picking some up...well, cuz I think I have a problem...  ;D
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (18:47:20/08-24-16)
Well now, those are certainly interesting ;D

Ah, missed that one! Did you pick up a bullet case or six?  ;D

AKO (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429341405/ako-poly-dice?ref=user_menu) has hit i out of the park again. Another great design, vivid colors and clear, easy pledge levels.

Wonder if they'd be willing to carve a custom set of malachite or Apache tear dice?
Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (07:35:11/11-07-16)
Given enough time and money, you never know ;)

They do have a number of gemstone options lists on their website (http://shop.metallicdicegames.com/)...maybe they have something that already hits your sweet spot?

Those are interesting - I'll have to check them out - as if I need more dice!  ::)

John Wrot has another one up for his halfsies dice (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/johnwrot/halfsies-dice-world-tour) - fairly standard as dice goes, but there are going to be quite a few color options. And voting. :D

Title: Re: Dice Kickstarters
Post by: AJCarrington on (21:04:10/02-21-17)
I find myself rather intrigued by the hollow dice, but really struggle with their practicality (reading them) and the price...sigh ::)

Post by: cantrip on (10:54:02/03-09-17)
Elder Dice (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/davidlarocca/elder-dice-lovecraftian-themed-dice-for-all-tablet) kickstarter is doing well. They have a d6 add-on, I'm just sayin'.   :)

Would be some fine dice to be using in your Court of Shadows / Tarot themed games! As if I need an excuse for more dice...  ;D
