Now On Kickstarter: CuCu Dice
March 31, 2015 - 7:16pm
Lovers of Arkham Horror and Eldritch Horror have an exciting new project on Kickstarter CuCu Dice. This is aimed specifically at the needs of players of the Arkham and Eldritch games. Offering an easy to see answer for dice rols of whether you have met success. These have three different dice faces with 3 blue faces, 2 green faces and 1 red face which allows you to have easy answers to success based on what result you are looking for from a 1 in 6 chance to a 5 in 6 chance of success of failure. This project features 5 different pledge levels and has already met its funding goals. It is set to fund on May 3rd. It is indicated that stretch goals will be announced. But at this time there have been none actually specified. In addition this is a project that has identified that it will be kicking it forward which means a portion of the money raised will be going to back other projects. While this project is very interesting looking it does come with some risks not the least of which is that this is a first time project creator. Additionally dice projects in general on Kickstarter can be a bit hit or miss on delivering near when they are slated to. This has to do with the difficulty which dice present. If you remember Wizkids having difficulty last year producing dice in enough quantity that is because dice are not necessarily the easiest thing to produce especially when they have custom elemetns to them. Within his risks and challenges area the creator does point out that production delays may be an issue. He say that he has worked to eliminate a lot of these issues. But has identified actions taken to mitigate some of these delays including doing work on production already and lining up multiple manufacturers. for full details on this project you can check out the Kickstarter page here.
