KS Campaign For Dice Carved From 50,000 Year Old Kauri Wood

Although dice as we know them can be traced back for 5000 years, Cillian Joseph McMinn has started a Kickstarter campaign for truly ancient dice, carved from one of the oldest sources of wood known. New Zealand’s Kauri trees were toppled and buried into peat swamps during a Stone Age tsunami 50,000 years ago, and have remained preserved ever since. The Ancient Dice Kickstarter is offering intricately carved dice made from this rare and precious wood, sourced from Ancient Wood, Ltd.

The Kickstarter Campaign for Ancient Dice will continue through August 22, and the dice are expected to deliver in September 2017.
