So what’s next?, Add Ons, and Surprise Unlocked Goal

Thank you thank you thank you to all our backers who believed in this project! We were so excited last Sunday as we counted down to the end. Your support means a lot to us!

So… what’s next?

+ We are waiting for Kickstarter to finish charging all the backers and release our funds. We’ve heard this can take up to two weeks. 

+ Complete prototypes so you can see them before you choose your colour.

+ Send out Backer surveys. Aiming to do this by January 22. Please get your survey back to us asap.

+ Purchase supplies: stickers, books, lots of lumber. 

+ Middle of February: begin fulfilling Stickers-only and Notebook-only backer levels.

+ Start building boxes! 

+ Custom boxes will be fulfilled first, then we’ll work on the standard boxes. 

+ Once everything has fulfilled… boxes, stickers, and notebooks will be available for purchase on our website! 

Add ons

We decided to make add ons available. ­čÖé

These will be listed in our Backers Survey when we send it, and you’ll be able to purchase any rewards at your Backer level or lower (excluding the custom box). We’ll invoice you for these, and then include them when your reward ships. 

Surprise Unlocked Goal

We’re adding a new Dragon and colour option! The Fang Dragon design and the boxes will have a natural stain to highlight the natural look of the wood. There will also be a Fang Dragon sticker in the small sticker pack (you’ll get 7 stickers in the pack!) and it will be a choice option for the Large Sticker choice.

What colour should be next?

With only a few hours left in our Kickstarter, we just passed the $6,000 mark. We’re getting so much closer to unlocking our next stretch goal!

If this unlocks, Backers will get to vote on which colour joins the lineup. Voting would happen once the KS is finished. I thought I’d show off the colours we’re thinking of. 

There will also be a natural option (but there’s no swatch for that lol). 

These swatches were pulled from the stainmaker’s website. For comparison, here’s our currently unlocked colours. 

Countdown with us!

We’ll be going live over on our Facebook page to count down to the end of the Kickstarter! 

Join us at 7:30 pm tonight (Sun Jan 3) over at https://www.facebook.com/AdventureDice/

We’ll show a behind the scenes of Adventure Dice, answer any questions you might have, do a sneak peek at new dice coming soon, and there will be pet cameos. 

We hope you’ll tune in to celebrate with us.

Green Dragon unlocked!

Last night we unlocked the Green Dragon! YAY!!!

This dragon design is now available as a dice box in the nifty Hunter Green stain, as well as being an option for the large sticker choice. Plus the small sticker pack will include a sixth sticker. 

Our next stretch goal is Backers Choice! This will unlock a new colour at $7,000. Our backers will get to vote on what our next stain and Dragon choice will be. Purple? Pastel blue? Natural? If we hit 6k we’ll do a Backers-Only post that shows off the colour options and also a poll where you can vote.

Blue Dragon unlocked! New stretch goals added!

Not long after I posted the last update, we unlocked our first stretch goal! The Blue Dragon design will now be an option you can select. 

Our next goal is the Green Dragon design at $5,000. I’ll post some photos of Blair’s test soon so you can see what that Hunter Green stain looks like. 

NEW STRETCH GOALS

We’re excited to announce two new stretch goals where you, the backers, get to decide what our next designs should be! At $7,000 and again at $9,000 we’ll hold a vote for new colour options! 

What colours do you think we should choose? Natural? Purple? Pink? Bronze? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Nearing our first Stretch Goal: Blue Dragon!

We’re getting close to unlocking our first stretch goal: The Blue Dragon! 

This stretch goal includes unlocking the Blue Dragon dice box option. This box is stained with a Deep Blue water-based stain, and features a Blue Dragon by artist Haley Boros engraved on the lid.  

Here’s a peek at Blair’s tests using the Blue stain. I took a variety of photos in different lighting so you had a better idea of the stain. Once we have a completed Blue Dragon Box to show off, I’ll get some more “posed” shots with our light box that hopefully show off the colour better. 

Shot with an indirect light ring. Probably the most true to colour.
Shot using the normal lighting in our house.
Shot in direct sunlight. Look at that wood grain pop!
Shot with a ring light, direct light.
Shot next to a window, with overcast light from outside. Probably the least accurate. The blue is not that bright… and it’s definitely not what my eyes see..

This stretch goal will also make a large version of the Blue Dragon sticker available, and we’ll add the Blue Dragon as a fifth sticker to our Small Sticker Pack. 

Large and Small Sticker Designs.
