For about six months, we've been working on a design for a more modern looking dice than the classic style and we're so proud to finally launch our first Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pookin/xlp-dice)!

We designed this with the idea of removing an equal amount of material from each face, resulting in an extremely accurate and balance die. For comparison, the amount by which the dices' center of mass is off from true center is less than the diameter of the average human hair (.004").

Every dice is precision CNC'ed on each face. While we mostly use acrylic for the plastic dice, future dice released may be made out of other types of plastics (such as resin). However, the exact material information of each dice that varies from the acrylic will be specified with its release.

Each metal dice released will be made specifically out of the material it is named after. For example, the aluminum dice currently available are made of 6061 alloy. We are also close to our next stretch goal, which will release a new type of metal, chosen by the backers. The choice is between copper, bronze and brass. If you would like to participate, please vote here (http://goo.gl/forms/3x2jBXeahx)!

If you have any questions regarding our project or process used to create the dice, please don't hesitate to ask! Also, any comments, suggestions or constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated!

Peoples indulge in various muscle building activities whether I talk about isometrics, gym or opting any kind of muscle building sport and as we all know that it is not an easy task you have to give your best to get the best but getting the type of body that you want is difficult, as shred and muscular body can not be achieved in single time so you have to decide what to choose. http://health786.com/testo-factor-x/

These actually look insanely amazing! As someone who uses a lot of dice on a pretty regular basis (in addition to being a 17 year old author I am a huge nerd and make my own games..most of which use dice). Because I'm currently traveling full time with my family, and the reason I have my Kickstarter up is because I can't afford to pay for publishing costs like printing, binding, etc. I, sadly, cannot directly contribute to your campaign. But I would love to share, retweet, etc.! If you let me know what your Twitter handle is I would happily follow and retweet; I'm trying to get all of us who are doing our first projects on Kickstarter to really help each other out. You can find me on Twitter at @arkstorm1 as well.

Thanks! You too, have been followed (not in a sinister way I swear) and I have retweeted one of your posts, which I shall try to do regularly about the Kickstarter ones. If you could recommend me to any friends or anyone else, it would be much appreciated. I've already recommended you to a few friends that play D&D. I don't, but I figure they might have some use for showing off really cool dice like yours!

Great concept. I like the idea of re-doing an existing thing. We are doing some with our product, trying to re-invent the water bottle.

cool idea

but they are hard as hell to read.

can you make the outer shell from a dark resin and the inner from a lighter one so you can see the numbers more clearly? then they'd be perfect

actually - the blue aluminium ones are easy to read

It's really nerdy and great that you rank them by "common, uncommon, rare". Just seeing those words gets me in the mood for some gaming.
