Kickstarter - Dice Coins (these are NOT Pencil Dice nor Dice Pencils)
Dice Coins. I'm really not sure what to make of this Kickstarter.
I mean, I have to admit it, the coins look nice. The art is evocative. Everyone likes dice. Lot's of folks like coins. Dice Coins? What's not to like?
I'd say they are cool as a conversation piece and a novelty. As a substitute for dice? Not so sure about that.
How can a spinning coin (that's how it works, it spins on the table like a top) be as random as gaming dice?
So, no statistical testing to prove this statement. Just an assumption. Yeah, not going to be used at my gaming table.
That being said, I like Challenge Coins and these are basically RPG Geekdom Challenge Coins. If you consider Dice Coins to be Challenge Coins, $35 for a set of 6 isn't a bad price at all.
