The dice Kickstarters are still in full swing, prompting another big blog post showcasing current projects. Because of the high number of dice KSes, this blog post will focus only on dice. However, there will be a brief mention and links for the dice storage and accessory projects currently ongoing. Remember that there is no special action for creators to get listed here – it costs nothing for companies to be featured. I simply search for dice projects and prioritize dice-only projects first. I often put them in the order in which they appear in the search, and this is meant to be informational, not a review of the product or company.
Divination Dice is a project by Doug Out Crafts and will be manufactured by Q Workshop. Each die has a different “divination” themed design, with the d10/d% differentiated by sun and moon. The d6 design allows the die to function as a d6 and fate/fudge dice, and extra fate/fudge are available as add-ons. The color schemes are black/white or black/teal, but funding has still not been reached.
Good Luck, Crit, and Lucky Dice are polyhedral sets where backers can choose the color scheme of dice from 8 options and then choose from “lucky,” “grit,” and “good luck” for the “20” spot on the d20. In addition to the different color schemes, there are also d20 packs, extended sets, a coin stretch goal, and a hexagon bag add-on.
Table Breakers are hefty polyhedral dice sets weighing in at 207 grams. For reference, most zinc alloy sets are closer to the 90-100 gram range, with polymer sets around 25-30 grams. Table breakers are available in black w/red, copper/bronze, gold, silver w/blue, and likely soon to be unlocked in purple w/white. They come in a case called “The protector,” and a new case is available in a later stretch goal (likely as an add on). Backers can also add d20s and d30s from previous KS projects to their pledge, which match the color styles of the polyhedral sets.
Paladin Roleplaying relaunched their Kickstarter for custom dice combinations. The relaunch allowed backers to choose starting sets. The project had three starting options, but has since unlocked several stretch goals for 9 total colors. There are still 8 prototypes shown that can be voted into future goals as of the time of this blog posting.
Impact Miniatures returns to KS with a campaign featuring five new dice designs: d21, consonant d21, vowel d5, d36 and 2d6, and Pulse Dice (fate/fudge). The company is known for dice chains starting at d3s and going up to d30, and those chains can be purchased through this campaign as well. They feature color styles unlocked in the last campaign like cotton candy and silver glitter along with more traditional black and translucent teal options.
Dragon Scales dice is a KS offering polyhedral dice sets in new dual mix colors. The dice are available in five new dual colors plus the eight original solid colors. There are stretch goals for an additional dual color unlock and designs for dice. Backers can pledge for full sets, d20s, or d6s, and add-on dice are available as well.
Finally, there are some some dice accessory projects currently on KS:

Dice Kickstarters have continued to be plentiful. In addition to the above-mentioned projects, it’s worthwhile to note that the Mad Designs Kickstarter mentioned in the September Kickstarter Blog Post has relaunched and is still up and running. On the horizon, we can expect upcoming Kickstarters for Roll With Advantage, Gio Lasar Designs, and Lucky Hand Dice. Stay tuned to the DMC blog for more Kickstarter round ups!
