I've hesitated posting this here, but figured that at least some of you might find it interesting. I've designed a few dice over the last couple of years, and now I'm running a Kickstarter campaign to get some of them made in metal. It's fully funded, I'm not here stumping to meet the base goal, I just figured some of you might appreciate these dice.

Tally ho!

Edit: Would you possibly be interested in a one-off special order? There's something specific I've been wanting to get Mr. Jenny for years but haven't found.

Also holy cow, you're in Orem? That's where my in-laws are. I was just there like 2 weeks ago.

Thanks, mates. I 'm just not much of a salesman; it always feels like spamming to me I'm always happy to get the designs out there and making people happy, though. ;)

Jez, yup, I've been in Orem for almost two decades now. I rather like it here.

I may well be able to do something for you as a special order, send me a PM with details and I'll see what I can do.

Edited to add: Oh, and Twittly, thanks! The cards are coming, I just need to get them approved (in processing), and get the KS set up. Really want to do it soon. :)

Too rich for my blood, since my only dice games of choice can both require over a dozen d6s at any given time and I like my dice to match. Awesome stuff, though!

Thanks! Yeah, speaking as a consumer, they are too rich for me, too. I actually did a campaign for plastic dice first, since those are more cost effective. It didn't get traction, so I offered the metal dice. Those caught on.

*shrug*

Might revisit the plastic at some point, but it seems I have my plate full at the moment. :)

Someone just pushed us over $11,000, so we'll be offering leather bags to everyone instead of the cloth bags!

Cloth or Leather?

I'm really not quite sure what will happen from here, but I'm brainstorming ideas for $15,000, should it become relevant.

Thoughts?

Aye, I've been rather stupidly busy, and I totally neglected to mention the deck here. Thanks for the mention!

At the moment, the deck is funded, so we will be making the Tinker Deck !

We're just trying to get to the Rusty Tinker Deck now as a stretch goal.

Oh, and we have the first photo of the Tinker Dice. They turned out really nicely, and I'm really looking forward to getting them out to everyone. :)
The photo is kinda... big (it breaks the forum formatting), so I've set it up over on my blog, thisaway:

Why did I not see this while it was active?

Also, wow, you live close to me. I thought I was the only PP player in Utah County.

I am fairly sure you could still get a deck if you asked nicely! He is still taking PayPal orders. :)

My wife and my friend and I play, albeit sporadically. So that's at least four of us in Utah county. :)

I played a lot more a few years ago. I really miss having that much spare time to just go memming or pillaging.

edited to add: Oh, and yes, we still have some of the Tinker dice (added: and plenty of the decks!) for sale via PayPal. Annoyingly, we're still waiting on the Gearpunk dice production, though.

Hehe I'm the guy from Canada who is causing the havoc with USPS not playing nicely. ^_^

The ones you shipped a week and-a-half ago haven't showed up, but I'm not too worried due to all this poor weather that has been happening recently!

We've finally been able to take another stab at making these in plastic, and expanding them into the other polyhedral dice, so we'll have full RPG sets. The metal dice are really sweet, but plastic dice are a bit nicer to tables. We'd love to have your input on the possible alternate colors!
