PlatypusFundraiser:You Have One Week To Place A Dice Order

Postby blackfly » Fri Jan 06, 2017 10:26 pm

EDIT: The colors have changed a bit since I first posted this. If you requested one that is changing, I'll PM you. Sorry for the mix up!


Thank you for all your feedback in the discussion thread. It's time to move on to the ordering phase!



We'll be offering 5 colors of 16mm Chessex D6, with w_w's platy on the 6spot. (Example pictures are included below as a reminder).

Color Options:

  1. Green w/black Pips
  2. Black w/white Pips
  3. Aquerple w/black pips (clearish sparkle)
  4. Black Nebula w/white pips (dark blue/grey swirl)
  5. Borealis Purple w/white pips (Purple with sparkles)
Based on the feedback received, here are the levels I've come up with for supporting the fundraiser


  1. Memento: $5.00 : Two Dice. Colors of your choice.
  2. GameTime! (pick up at Salute) $20.00: 1 Dozen Dice. Your choice of colors, in blocks of 6. (12 of any one color, or 6ea of two colors)
  3. GameTime! (delivered) $25.00: 1 Dozen Dice. Your choice of colors, in blocks of 6. (12 of any one color, or 6ea of two colors). The extra 5$ covers shipping.
  4. Forum Support Super Hero! $75.00: 2 Dozen Dice, Your choice of colors in blocks of 6. And I'll make you a custom random platypus t-shirt. Design TBD. It may be some art we've already seen, but in a color or shirt style that has not yet been produced, or it may be new art. Either way, it will be available only to select platypi in thanks for their support.

Note: I'm trying to keep the options simple for ease of completing this, but if you want more than a dozen but don't want to be a Super Hero, PM me, and I'm sure we can work something out. Might as well take advantage while we're putting the order in.

To place your order:

EDIT: Ordering is closed.

The plan is to dispense as many of these as we can at Salute, but if you won't be attending, we'll get them shipped to you one way or another.

Also, sorry for the US-centric prices, I know 90% of the forum is non-US. But, since thats what the supplier uses, it just makes all the math on the back end easier. :)

Any questions, just ask!

Just a quick update to bump this back onto people's unread radar.

Please see the original post for some clarifications/changes to the colors available. Sorry for the confusion on that bit. :(

Also please note deadline for ordering has been finalized: Feb15 2017.

Thanks!

They'll ship from the UK, via salute dropoff to a friendly UK distribution platypus, such as myself.

Also, money sent BF. Thanks for the legwork fella.
Brave you all!
What a superb game this is and will become, my prediction was weak and we will be many more.
Thank you all and see you again here, in breathing life, never where popular opinion dies

Anyone know what a small packet w/2 dice mailed from within the UK would be? 1£?

Thanks :)

Producing both eggs and milk, the platypus is one of nature's rare custard machines.

Come paycheck day this month I'll be slinging funds over, those borealis purple ones are just outstanding. I think Green will be pushed aside for 6 of those and 6 Aquerple...

Thanks!


Doesn't seem like we need to let it sit quite so long, and if I can't end up getting cleared to get to the UK, I want to leave ample time for sending things over if needed.

Thats two weeks, so I hope it works for everyone. If you need an extra day or two to get paychecks into budgets etc, just let me know now. We'll make it work :thumb:
