Yay, we've hit our initial funding goal and in an amazingly short time too! Hugs all round ;D

This means that we can all shade our eyes at the glory of Coral Reef (and you'll be able to select it as one of your colours when I send out the survey at the end of the campaign).

Our next target, and one I'm very excited about, is Croc Hunter at $1750. I really hope we hit this target, I am in love with this colour scheme!

Greetings from country victoria, i am interested in your dice, and will prob send off for some in the next week.

Awesome stuff, thanks Marni!

I know what you mean about Drop Bears, but I didn't want to scare our friends from overseas with some of our deadlier animals so I thought it best to call it a Koala instead ;)

I'm happy to announce that we've smashed the Croc Hunter goal and are well on our way to free Baggy Green's for every contributor.

We have also had another new design set up via our "Design Your Own" perk. The MBBL have decided on Blue with Metallic Silver, and these can now be added as a standard colour choice:

This makes six unique colour options, increasing to seven if we break the Baggy Greens goal (and with 20 days and less than $100 to go, I'd say that's pretty likely). For those keeping score at home, if you get the Six Sets perk you can get all seven colours for just $60 delivered to your door :)

Hi all, I've updated the campaign with a host of new goals:

$3300 - Dog Tag Bottleopeners

One of my favourite items I've ever produced for Eucalyptus Bowl is my dog-tag Bottle Opener, made for Euc Bowl 2011. Keeping with the Aussie theme and the Bottecap tokens, I've decided to make a new bottle opener which will be added to all perks at "Three Sets" or above.

You'll also be free to add $5 to either your pledge or via the "Extras Perk" to get more of these awesome bottle openers.

I can't stress this enough, this is a ROUGH DRAFT of the final product, obviously I still need some time to work on the design!!

Image

$3800 - RAINBOW SERPENT
Image

Ever since early on in this process, I really wanted to get a set of multi colour block dice done, but the setup costs were too high compared to standard dice. However, due to the success of this campaign and the size of our order, I've managed to make this work in the existing budget.

If we meet this goal, I will add Rainbow Serpent as a standard colour choice. I will also add free copies to the higher level perks, starting at "Six Sets". This means anyone getting "Six Sets" or higher can continue to get one of each colour on offer.

$4000 - MORE BOTTLECAPS

I've had a very positive initial response to the Beer Bottlecap designs, and so to celebrate hitting $4000 I intend to release a second set of six bottlecaps, this time using inspirating from soft drinks. Check out an early sample of some designs we may use:

ImageImage

If we meet this goal, I will double the current bottlecap allocations for all existing perks, and add one set of bottlecaps to the "Three Sets" perk (you can choose between Beer and Soft Drinks).

$4500 - NEW COLOUR AND MORE DICE CHOICES FOR ALL "CHOSEN COLOUR" SETS

If we manage to get this far, I'll add a new colour combination (I'll update this with an image this evening).

I will also add one extra chosen colour to every perk (more at higher levels) except the Random Set perk. So, if you're getting One Set, you'll get to choose two colours (plus your free Baggy Greens), if you're getting Three Sets you'll get to choose four colours and so on.

$7000 - PAIR OF MATCHING D6 FREE WITH EVERY SET OF BLOCK DICE

Yep, sadly that's the sort of cost involved and this is why I ultimately decided not put the D6 ahead of the other goals listed above.

If we reach this goal, I will add a set of two D6 in matching colours with every single set of block dice, regardless of what level of perk you receive.

WHO GETS WHAT?

And because it's starting to get confusing, here is a chart of who gets what with their pledge.

Hello everyone,

Things are going really well over on the Campaign, we've now passed the "Rainbow Serpent" and "Soft Drink Bottlecap" targets. Some perks have extra sets of Rainbow Serpent and Bottlecaps added to the rewards. Here are the Bottlecap designs:

Image

Our next goals are "Uluru Twilight", a Purple dice design at $4500. After that we have "Matching D6" at $7000, which is a maching pair of D6 with every set of Block Dice you get (so each set goes from three dice to five dice total).

We have four possible designs for "Uluru Twilight", and I'll be putting up a survey soon for everyone to vote for their favourite. Here are the options:

And here is an updated chart of rewards, which includes the two upcoming goals (so obviously if we don't reach that goal, the reward is not included in the final perk).

Just four days left to go, and we are $1600 away from getting free pairs of matching D6 with every set of three Block Dice.

We have recently unlocked Uluru Twilight, our last colour combination for the campaign:

Image

This makes 9 unique colour combinations. Almost all of our perks have been enhanced as a result, with more dice for everyone getting the "One Set" perk or higher.

We are also offered free tournament support, worldwide. Everyone who contributes at least $36 can nominate a tournament, and we will provide them with a free prize pack of dice. Please see the campaign updates page for more details.

I hate having this big gap between the Uluru Twilight goal and the Free D6. I can afford some of the D6 now, but not all of them... and everyone will have their own favourite colours, so if I (for example) unlocked three of the D6 now, loads people would be unhappy because their colours didn't get picked!

However, everyone is getting at least one set of Baggy Greens. So, as the most universal colour, the exclusive for the campaign AND the most Australia colour of them all... I'm unlocking free D6 for the Baggy Greens immediately.

This means that every set of Baggy Greens will also come with a set of two matching D6. The rest of the D6 remain at the goal of $7000. I really hope we make it that far!

Wow everyone, we've reached the goal and unlocked free D6 for everyone!

This means each "set" of Block Dice now includes: 3x Block Dice, 2x D6

We have one final goal to be unlocked, an Australian Tournament Coin from Eucalyptus Bowl at $7750. If we unlock this coin, everyone who is getting a free Bottle Opener will also get a free Coin (so at $36 or $60 you get one free coin, at $90 you get two free coins and at $120 you get three free coins).

If you would like to buy extra coins, you can add $7.50 to your order right now. Even if we don't hit the $7750 goal you'll still get any coins that you buy!
