This is cool.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/customgamelab/custom-game-dice-you-design?ref=discovery

Cheap small-order custom dice (laser engraved and painted).


They've got 2 limited bargain packs. $30 for 24, $125 for 100 (roughly $1.25 per dice). You can order a whole bunch, but only use some of them. You then just pay shipping any time you want more (first shipment included in the KS price if US, $7 International). If you want, every dice can be unique.

I preordered a $30 ($30+$7) two dozen die pack. I don't have anything in mind, but I have certainly thought about making custom dice. I *want* to order the 100 pack, but given that I don't have anything planned, I'll stick with the 24 pack.

Huh, that's funny, I was actually considering using a 3d printing service to print some dice for me. I was going to get the platonic solids with the element each is associated with used to show the number. This is a lot better, and likely much better. Cheers!

Ahh, though after looking at the kickstarter, it looks like they only do standard 6-sided. Ah well, this is still a hell of a cool kickstarter, I might back it anyway!

That dice thing is really neat. I'm so intrigued even though I have absolutely zero use for custom dice.

Those custom dice have me thinking about getting into FATE again (RPG using weird dice) and designing my own stylio. Would be interesting, at least.

Looks very nice! With a lot of thought put into everything. I would certainly back this if I wasn't a broke bastard ;)

Looks like it's already done? Hehe. :]

Not sure I would dig it these days. Years ago, definitely.

The waffle iron kickstarter is lagging ~15K with six days to go. Now I'm worried.

Everybody that 'starred' a kickstarter gets an e-mail 2 days before it ends. So hopefully things change in a few days.
