We love dice. Using them is vital in hundreds of board games and RPGs and the satisfaction they bring when rolled is unmatched. When implemented well, dice based mechanics can sure feel amazing when playing. Gamers, who have more experience often start thinking about upgrading their dice to something more unique than your regular plastic set from a local game store. Here’s where Kickstarter comes to help as the platform has tons of great dice related campaigns running at all times of the year.
Today we’ve decided to show you 3 great looking sets of dice that all can still be backed on Kickstarter.
The Witcher Hybrid Dice
The Witcher Hybrid Dice are one of our top choices right now. Apart from the amazing IP, beloved by millions of fans, the technique used to craft them is extremely rare. The guys at Q Workshop merge two different materials to create them. This includes mixing wood with metal or composite with plastic. The attention to detail is incredible here. Dice have stylish numbers, emblems of the Witcher’s Wolf School, Witcher Signs and other details that will please the fans.
Also: the most recent unlock has added new insert style decorated with Cat School insygnia.
The dice are offered in a variety of sets. If you want to play RPGs you can get 2 different sets that work with most popular RPG systems. If you need regular D6s, there’s also an option with these. Fans of The Witcher video games can also get their hands on something really unique. A whole set of dice crafted to recreate the Dice Poker minigame known from the first two installments. It comes with its own wooden box and enough dice to play proper matches.
All in all the Witcher Hybrid Dice seem fantastic: from their design to pledge variants made to suit all sorts of backers: from various types of players to dice collectors. We also love the hybrid technology used here and hope that Q Workshop will continue to use it in their future projects.
Dice by Wyrmwood and Dispel
The newest dice sets by Wyrmwood were created thanks to a collaboration with Dispel, merging the experience and style of both dice crafting companies.
The dice come in tons of material options. You can get dice sets made of plastic, gemstone, wood or even glass. There are also tons of colour options to pick from. Backers can for example get light blue dice with little golden stains called Last Voyage, green and pink set called 80s Kid, or even a set named Scarlet Blade that’s blood red and slightly transparent.
Campaign add-ons include Dice Vaults made of various types of wood and designed to hold your dice. They can be rectangular or hexagonal depending on your choice.
Finally we want to show you this set of dice made out of metal. The amount of choice is smaller here but the designs make up for it. Each single die is covered with a maze themed decoration. The designers have used a technique that allows the dice to be empty inside and consist only of their great looking labyrinth-like shapes.
Rolling Maze dice come in a number of varieties: silver, golden, blue, black and many more are still being unlocked. Additionally, backers can also get their hands on triangular boxes made to hold the dice.
