Kickstart Monday: Your Dice Empowered by Thrones

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! If you are new to #KickstartMonday then we tip our hats to you. We dive into crowdfunding applications like Kickstarter and Gamefound to find two or more crowdfunded tabletop gaming projects that we think you should know about. You’ll find board games, gaming accessories, gaming furniture, RPGs, dice, miniatures, and more on #KickstartMonday.

On this week’s #KickstartMonday we dive into a very dice-themed week. Let’s dive into this week’s projects!

Reliquaries: Hand Painted Dice Thrones by Dwarven Forge

Reliquaries: Hand Painted Dice Thrones by Dwarven Forge is a unique project featuring cool pedestals to give your dice the proper respect that they need. We have all had dice that just will not roll well, but what about rewarding those dice with the special treatment that they deserve. Each of these reliquaries is hand-sculpted and painted with an eye to detail.

So besides being places of honor for your dice you can actually put these to good use. Leverage them for tracking ability stats, damage, skill modifiers, or any number of things you might need markers for in your games.

While I feel that Dwarven Forge markets these a bit more to the RPG market, I can see myself using these to track the turn in a game of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, mark the damage taken on a miniature in battle, or track any number of effects.

If you are like us and love dice then you want to give your dice the respect that they deserve. Don’t jail your dice. Give them the place of honor that they deserve.

Handcrafted RPG Character Cat’s Eye Gemstone Dice

These handcrafted RPG character cat’s eye gemstone dice from Diving Hippo Studios is unique in a market filled with polyhedral dice. Each dice features a symbol that represents one of the 12 most popular character classes in Dungeons and Dragons. This really lets you have a unique set of dice that really represents your character.

The dice are made from Cat’s Eye which is a semi-transparent gemstone. The dice are hand-carved. Since they are gemstone they are heavier, not quite the weight of metal dice but weighty still. Though the carving process won’t have quite the same perfection as the sides of manufactured dice, it does mean that these dice will be truly unique and made just for you.

If you love to own unique dice, have a player character that’s truly special, or a class that you love to play then pick up a set of very unique dice then this is going to likely be the set you have always been wanting.

Like most gamers these accessories are all optional. In addition, I have sorted them a bit by how important of versatile they are to the collection and by general category. Not all of these items will be good fits for your game room or the types of games you play. Hopefully though, you will get some ideas of what to add to your room. We would love to hear about things you are using to accessorize your gaming room so give us a shout out if you think we missed something.

Kickstart Monday: Firey Dice and Blinging Your Games

Welcome to 2021!!! That’s right, we are finally out of 2020 and with a new year comes our first Kickstart Monday! For this week, I stumbled into a metal dice Kickstarter that would be great for your RPG games. I also found a project that had some amazing components to bling out your favorite board games!

Dragon Scale RPG Metal Dice Set

Dragon Scale RPG Metal Dice Set by Dragon Scale features a full set of metal dice for your role playing game. There is something that can be appreciated about the thud sound that a metal dice makes when it hits the game table.

Offered in different colors, what makes these dice unique compared to other metal gaming dice is the scale patter that is designed onto each dice face. Personally, I am really partial to the red dragon scale dice myself. Let us know what your favorite color is.

Upgrade Your Games: Season 2

We have all wanted to have amazing components for our board game. With Upgrade Your Games: Season 2 by Vesuvius Media Ltd. this dream can be made true.

With a number of unlocks yet to go, this Kickstarter project features some really amazing component upgrades, player token upgrades, and metal coins. If you are like me, then adding great components to a game really helps with the immersion.
