Each box is unique, based on the cigar box from which it’s made. Felt colors vary. Order one, and I’ll send a box that I’d be proud to have for my own. A custom box alone is $20 USD.

Three compartments are standard for All the King’s Men games. More than three is typically awkward to get fingers and hands inside, but let me know what you’d like, and I’ll see what I can do. Price subject to change based on design changes.

One box per player is ideal.

Customers outside the U.S.A.: Our shopping cart doesn’t automatically charge you postage. I’ll quote you the best shipping rate possible to your destination, which we’ll resolve in a separate transaction.

From the campaign:

I’m asking you to help me create a very specific product and to make it affordable: 16mm Faction Dice. Recently, a new weird war themed game came out, but it was missing something that many people wanted but could not get. In the shop I even heard stories of the trouble people went through to try to make their own dice or have them made. It got pretty crazy. It seemed like people really wanted US Army-, German-, and Soviet-themed dice with the faction symbol on the 1 and the 6 facing and the rest of the facings blank.

Free Roll Machined Gamers Dice up on Kickstarter

They are durable, perfectly weighted with smooth corners that allow the dice to roll easily and deliver statistically even probabilities. Each die measures 16mm and weighs 11.34gm. No more boring square faced, sharp rigid dice that have a tendency to scratch and cut board games and tables. We introduce you to the new revolutionary RPG gaming dice named “Free Roll”.

After the successful Kickstarter campaign “Eternity Dice” we thinked if it coluld be possible to do new dice, equally beautiful and special. The Vesuvian lava stone is unique and can be found only at the slopes of Vesuvius, but we realized that in Italy and in the whole World there are so many different stones that deserve our attention, so we decided to create a complete collection of stone dice, all completely handmade one by one, containing all the energy and color of our Planet.
Each of these “jewels” combine their history genesis and the echoes from the Mother Earth.

This really is the ultimate collection!

GCT Studios announces releases for Wave 10 for Bushido

GCT Studios is letting us know what’s-what with their Wave 10 releases for Bushido.

This wave is going to see the general release of Bushido’s fifth faction; the Ito Clan. Due to the success of the campaign that not only brought their release forward but has also allowed us to, at launch, release a starter force of 5 models balanced at 35 rice but also an extra four individual blisters. Because of this huge added extra to our normal wave release and the demands it brings we have decided to only include Ito models in Wave 10. Besides it could be an opportunity to pick up a new faction in the Ito, for those that missed the campaign.

Those fans of the existing four factions need not fear, we will still be releasing a faction specific product for each force. This will come in the form of 10 faction dice with an RRP of £9.95. These dice packs come with five attack and five defence dice. They feature the colours of their respective factions as well as the faction symbol on the 6. Show off your faction support in style with these high quality 16mm dice.

So in total wave 10 will land with coincidentally 10 new products for your playing and collecting pleasure.

Eternity Dice up on Indiegogo

Eternity Dice is looking for funding over on Indiegogo. Every gamer’s got a weak spot for dice.

From the campaign:

We have always been fascinated by dice. Somehow we consider them as mystical objects, but all dice we’ve ever bought and used to play with didn’t have a soul. After a walk in Vesuvius National Park, we realized that we wanted to have dice directly from Mother Earth which would be able to evoke old world feelings now lost in the traffic of the modern metropolis. So what material could be more evocative and pleasant to the touch and sight than the lava of a volcano?

Dice Rings up on Kickstarter

Dice Rings is an interesting product up on Kickstarter. They’re Dice. They’re Rings. They’re Dice Rings.

From the campaign:

What is a Spinner Ring?

A spinner ring is designed in a way that an outer smaller ring spins in a grooved inner ring that slips onto your finger.

Features of Dice Rings

Portable – You can take dice rings anywhere. No worries about rolling them into a heater duct or losing them to a hungry pet. They will stay firmly attached to your hand. Unless you’re a zombie… then no guarantees.

Made from stainless steel – Our rings are made from the highest quality 316L stainless steel, a very strong and durable alloy that resists scratches, dents, and unorthodox abuse (troll punching). Like most other jewelry (even gold), it is an alloy. This type of steel contains 10-14% Nickel. For anyone who does not have a sensitivity to Nickel, these rings will be perfect for you. Unfortunately, we just could not get a hold of any adamantium or vibranium.

Produces fair rolls – The numbers are well distributed across the outer spinning band. There are no concentrations of high/low numbers, so they cannot be purposely aimed for or avoided. No cheese rolls.

Occupies idle hands – It is an awesome accessory to occupy idle hands and calm your mind. Spinner rings (also called worry rings) are frequently used as a stress relief tool, and are beloved by people with ADD everywhere.

Stylish – With these you are looking nerd chic!
