We're planning on sending surveys out by the end of the week, so stay tuned!
I don't get it! How does this all work?? You'll get an email with a link to the survey. Once you're there, the survey will guide you through a few short steps kind of like an online checkout. It's really easy.
Is the survey where I enter my shipping information? Yes!
Can I change my shipping address after I've entered it? Yes. We'll only lock down the survey right before shipping, and we'll send you a reminder a couple days before that happens.
Can I change my pledge and/or add on more sets? You sure can!
Kickstarter dropped my payment. Can I fix it? Yes, if your payment method was rejected you'll be able to fix it.
One more thing...
I want to give a quick shout-out to an awesome project called Stat Trackers. If you're a GM (or shopping for one), this project could make your life way easier. Be sure to check them out.
THANKS!! And Happy Gary Gygax Day :)

This morning as the campaign was coming to an end, we started to see mentions of "Gary Gygax Day" on social media. Believe it or not, we had no idea this was coming. Our dice campaign accidentally ended on Gary Gygax's birthday. Happy Gary Gygax day, everyone!
Final campaign stats:
- 1,543 Backers
- $40,508 Raised
- 810% of Goal
- 2,114 Dice Sets
THANKS so much to everyone who backed! Now the real work begins. We'll continue to send out updates and let you know how things are going between now and when we ship.
What to expect next:
In about 2 weeks, you'll receive a Backerkit survey. It's called a survey, but it's more like a special web page where you can manage your pledge. The Backerkit survey is where you'll enter your shipping information. Even if your address changes, you can go back to the survey and update it.

Final 48 Hours / Now Using Backerkit
22 days ago
– Wed, Jul 26, 2017 at 01:23:28 AM
We're officially in the final 48 hours of the campaign! Tell your friends! Tell your grandma! Tell your pets!
In other news, we've decided to use Backerkit for pledge management. A few of you have asked if you'd be able to upgrade your pledges after the campaign is over, and at the time we said no. Now that we're using Backerkit, you'll be able to upgrade your pledge or add on extra sets after the campaign is over.
A couple weeks after the Kickstarter is over, all backers will receive a Backerkit survey. When you fill out the survey, you'll be able to upgrade your pledge and/or add on extra sets. If you've already over-pledged on Kickstarter to receive extra sets, those funds will carry over to Backerkit and can be used to pay for any pledge upgrades and add-on sets that you select.

We did it!!! The Sahara Sands one-shot is getting made! I don't know about you, but I can't wait to play it.
Thanks for all your help getting the word out about Dice of Rolling. Seriously. This might go without saying for a Kickstarter project, but we couldn't have done it without you.
It's really exciting to us that we're going to be able to release a dice set with extras that are so great for new players. Here's the running tally of what will come with a set of Dice of Rolling:
- 29 Color-Coded Dice w/ Microfiber Dice Bag
- Digital Download: 5th Edition Action Cards
- Digital Download: "Sahara Sands" One-Shot Campaign
- Digital Download: "Party Potions" RPG-Themed Drink Mixing Guide
- Digital Download: Laser Cut RPG Token Pack Template
For those of you who are seeing this and wondering "Action cards, party potions, and token pack? When did that happen?", let me catch you up. I released the token pack in a previous update, which you probably saw (it can be cut for free over at Ponoko). The Action Cards and Party Potions have been available on our website for a while. You can get them there right now by signing up for our email list, but I'll also bundle all these digital extras together into a nice package to be delivered digitally along with the the dice sets when they go out.
This project has been an amazing journey for us so far, and putting it out there has been a very personal experience. We had the idea for Dice of Rolling while playing a game late on a cold Friday night. Sahara Sands is created by one of the players from that same group. These ideas are literally coming from our table to yours, and it's been wildly uplifting to see so many people receive them with open arms.
You guys (and girls) are awesome.
