The centrepiece of my gaming table is a Dog Might box, but I never had a fidget spinner, and so I suppose that gives me a score draw in the run-up to the company’s latest Kickstarter.
On offer are 20 different wood types, 18 designs and 16 dials that go together to create a forest of different combinations of d20 fidget spinners. If you dislike the clatter of dice, then these are an exciting alternative. The Kickstarter has been funded, but there are only two weeks left to join in.
The sculpted hardwood devices are really quiet, handy if you need to dice in secret or just fidget at the table and don’t want to disrupt gameplay. They’re also protected by Dog Might’s lifetime guarantee.
The wood choices are in different tiers. You need to start with a base pledge high enough to qualify for the one you want. Options such as design choice are then upgrades from that base.
We can see the designs likely to be available in the Kickstarter story, but you will have to wait, I imagine with some uncertainty, for the pledge manager to open before you can pick the one you want.
Dog Might primarily works with local mills that are based in the Mid-West. We also order from one or two online suppliers for rare and special order species.
We have visited and had long conversations with each of these mills and are confident that we are working with some of the best in the business. They have assured us that all of their lumber comes from local, sustainable sources that they have worked with for years, sometimes decades.
A pledge of $29 gets you into the classic tier. As noted in this Kickstarter, and with my experience of Dog Might previously, they start to release their physical items in waves. The estimated delivery date of January 2022 will be for Wave 1, but you might be many Waves after that.
The next tiers are at $35, $39 and $45. However, you can also back the spinners in groups with a classic 4 pack starting at $99 and the mythic 4 pack reaching $139.
There are no plywood options as a point of pride. Shipping and import duties are separate.
Add-ons don’t appear here, not in the Kickstarter native system, but could appear in Dog Might’s pledge manager.
