Are those D6 Anodized Aluminum dice really balancing on their tip?

Yes they are. For real. Nothing touching them and nothing holding them in place but precision, gravity and physics.

Just one of the ways that our EleMetal™ dice stand out as being the best dice made today.

Meteorite and Cases

All meteorite dice from the sets to the singles will come in in a custom case. We're still working out how these cases will look but all meteorite dice will come with case of some sort. I'm working on a case with an impact crater for the D20 singles and some other ideas, we'll see which work out. In the mean time, rest assured no loose meteorite dice will be sent out un-cased.

What's the deal with the 700 backers and the free dice offer?

When the campaign reaches 700 backers all 700 backers of record who remain on the campaign till the end receive a set of EleMetal Aluminum dice as a bonus for helping the campaign reach 700 backers. We're shooting for 1000 but we figure that with 700 enough momentum is built up to get us there... we'll see.

Also, just to be 100% clear on this. We're handing out 700 sets of free dice total. 1 to each of the first 700 backers who pledge $25 or more and who both remain backers all the way through the campaign funding stage. Backer number 701 is out of luck for this promotion... but perhaps they'll be something else for them... you never know...

Those 100mm GIANT Polyhedrals and their case....

Yes, case. We're working on a lidded case for transport, storage and display of the GIANT 100mm polyhedral dice. If we can get it done in time to show in this compaign we will, otherwise all backers of these dice be assured. You will not have to move these around individually loose.

Those Ebony Wood Dice...

I said before they were precise to .003... and that's true in some dimensions... in others however well, they could use some improvement. Buyer beware that these dice are not 100% square, they're symmetrical but not square. This comes as the result of error in my table-saw and at this point is not correctable. This is the 1st production run and as such has 1st run issues. The dice roll well and don't appear after several hundred rolls to be favoring any one side... so just be aware... these dice ARE NOT PERFECT.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://zucati-elemetal.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
