Round dice? Blaster Light has crossed the €300,000 in pledges mark as gamers are persuaded by their spherical dice.
Will these dice roll forever like other round dice you might have tried? No, say Blaster Light, who have put internal weights in each of their Orbidice. You can check out the latest totals and join in from the pitch page.
Blaster Light are up-front about their target market; tabletop game enthusiasts. People who have dice already, but not these dice.
Three themes have been unlocked, the black and red scratch set shown in the video, white red “dragon eggs”, and blue and black “two-sword village”. More are likely to come.
Orbidice are made from a softer but still very stiff material that will hold shape and all the intricate details, but make them very resilient to accidental drops from the table.
Orbidice have their insides specially shaped allowing a metal ball to move freely inside as the dice rolls, before being caught by one of the special grooves, making the die stop within an incredibly short distance. Then you read the number that is on the top like you would from normal dice!
Also available is a “dice tower” or Orbitray which lets the dice spin around to add some drama to your tabletop.
The pledge tiers exclude shipping and any import fees.
A pledge of €49 (about £43) will get you one set of Orbidice. You get to pick from any unlocked theme and any applicable stretch goals.
Set up to €77 (£67), and you get the Orbitray too.
After that, we’re into multiples as you can get two, three or even more sets.
Shipping is likely to add about €20 to your order.
