We received an email this morning from the company producing the Tinker Dice. They sent us a photo of the first Tinker Pentagear Fudge dice, hot off the press, as it were. These are plated in nickel.
The funny thing is, the Tinker Pentagear Fudge dice main production run will be entirely in antiqued bronze. We consciously limited their finish to bronze because they were a promotional design to coincide with the Mechanika campaign, not our standard dice that we wanted to offer in multiple finishes.
So… these are an oddity, a rarity… something that may never really see the light of day for sales. (The Mechanika guys may do another print run someday using these, but for now, if I understand the production company correctly, there are only these four and two others in existence.)
But they are still pretty cool, and I wanted to share the photo to show you what they are doing with the designs. I’m quite happy with their work, and I’m really looking forward to getting all of the dice made and shipped out to everyone. I’ll share more prototype photos as they come in.
Oh, and as a reminder, we’re approaching the main goal on our sister project, the Tinker Deck, and we’re really looking forward to going for the stretch goal of the Rusty Tinker deck. Thanks to all of you who have joined that campaign, too! If you have a minute and the interest, please spread the word about the cards. We’d love to get them out to as many people as we can, too!
