CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Many board games and role-playing games (RPG) involve rolling dice. Rolling dice means adding numbers and writing scores. If you’re an RPG player, that can mean serious adding. If only there was a better way!
Particula has launched a Kickstarter campaign for GoDice – connected dice and an app that does all the adding, calculations, and scoring for you.
The dice connect via Bluetooth to your Android or IOS device. Each die contains sensors that determine when they are being shaken and rolled as well as their final position. They feed this information to their app that can input that into whatever game you are playing for scoring and roll options.
The app contains multiple games with more planned.
If you are an RPG player, higher-level rewards include shells for various games.
The carrying case is also the charger. Each die contains a supercapacitor. The case can charge the dice for an hour of gameplay in only ten seconds.
The app lets you do some statistical analysis, recording stats and providing odds for the next roll.
Rewards are as follows:
- Starter – $59
- Basic – $69
- Pro – $79
- DND – $99
- DND Ultimate – $169
Their Kickstarter campaign is already funded over $355,000 on their original goal of $25,000. The campaign ends Thursday, January 16, 2020, at 9:16 AM EST.
If you’re into dice games, it might be worth taking a roll of the dice with GoDice. For more information, check out their campaign on Kickstarter.
