Latest Updates from Our Project:

Quick Update
25 days ago – Wed, Apr 24, 2024 at 10:14:48 AM

Summer is quickly approaching! 

As stated in the campaign, our goal was to begin shipping come summer 2024. We still are focused on this deadline, and things are looking good! 

This message is a quick reminder to please make sure addresses are up-to-date in your Pledge Manager via Backerkit. We are showing that there are still roughly 40 surveys that are incomplete - this can delay shipping of your item, so if you have not completed your survey please do so here:  

The final product is really coming together and we will be sharing photos soon in a much larger update - we just wanted to touch base and let everyone know we are excited to show you how everything has been coming together, and begin getting organized to avoid delays in shipping. 

Thank you for your continued support as we roll into summer!

February Update - On Target
4 months ago – Sat, Feb 03, 2024 at 08:36:52 AM

February is here! 2024 is under way!

(Painfully we typed out a long and well crafted update but somehow it timed out while posting and we've been unable to retrieve it. Going to attempt to share the information as eloquently as we had it laid out before...)

Greetings dear backers! As the days grow longer and the sun shine gets warmer, we get closer to the promised time frame of delivering dice in June.  It is wild to think that is only 4 months away, but we continue to remain confident that we will be able to make this target as production remains on track. 

While it has been a little quiet the last few weeks, we thank everyone for understanding the slower updates while we recovered from holidays and allowed for some time off. Production is back in full swing at the Tux & Roll Studio, and we have some fun updates cresting the horizon. For now, we just wanted to take a moment to let you all know we are here and working diligently to deliver on our promised goals. 

In the meantime, we wanted to share some company history. February is always a special time for us because it is our anniversary! We made our very first set of dice to celebrate Valentine's day. They were berries and cream inspired and... full of holes, made of the cheapest materials and crafted in a friend's living room. In other words, they weren't great, haha! But we still are so proud of those dice. They are a testament to how far we've come, and how honored we are to  now be making dice professionally for the gaming community we love. Please enjoy these photos of our first ever set of dice - and remember to share love this year for the support in your life, but also for the passions you have! The start of a great journey begins with a simple step. 

Happy gaming and much love!

Happy Pawlidays!

**For anyone who might be gifting Animal Print Dice this holiday season, please scroll to the end of this update - we have created a certificate you may print to share! There are two styles - please enjoy!**

Greetings backers and supporters alike - we hope you are having a wonderful holiday season, wherever you may reside, and how ever you enjoy celebrating - we wish you well and hope the season brings you peace and time with loved ones (and of course LOTS OF GAMES!) 

With only 11 more sleeps until Christmas, we are eagerly awaiting Santa Paws over here... 

 We are happy to report that production has been going well, with no major hiccups. Our dice are crafted in layers, where a core is produced with the design and then the numbers are added with a second resin pour. Currently we continue the process of molding the cores and adding the animal print design. We are aiming to have this completed early 2024, and we are on track for this milestone. 

As we roll into 2024, our New Years resolution is to have more activity in the social media department including Tiktok, Instagram, and X (Twitter). Right now production is more on the boring side of things, but we still would like to take you along on the journey. Often when in the grove of resin pouring, or taking dice out of the molds, it is hard to remember to turn on the camera. However, a little elf told us Santa Paws will be bring some tools to help us in that endeavor. We even would like to do a few livestreams where you can join us and watch us do some pours and add some spots. Would that be of interest to some of you? 

As we wrap on 2023, we want to thank each and every one of you for your support. Because of you we get to live out the dream of designing and creating gaming components for a community we love and cherish so dearly. We are fortunate to have some of the best backers out there, and we look forward to sharing our dice with you next summer. If you are gifting Animal Print Dice for the holidays, we crafted up a couple of certificates you could use; please see below:  

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year! We look forward to an exciting few months ahead - we hope you do too! Until next time, please follow us on social media @tuxroll on all your favorite platforms!~  

Add-ons and Survey Reminder
7 months ago – Sun, Oct 29, 2023 at 07:13:37 AM

Hello, and happy fall ya'll! 

For those that celebrate the season, wishing you a fun, safe, and spooky Halloween! We will be spending ours playing games - of course! 

As far as updates go, production is well underway and making great headway. The dice are made in 3 stages - create cores, place patterns, and finally, add numbers. Currently we are in the core pouring stage for all sets with a goal to start adding patterns by mid-November. We are currently on track for our delivery goals. 

Final Reminder

Taking a quick moment to remind everyone that on November 1st Backerkit will be collecting funds for any additional items purchased from add-ons. Thank you for your continued support, and we are excited so many of you were interested in expanding your collection beyond your original pledge. 

This is also a reminder to please complete your Backerkit survey if you haven't yet - this will ensure there are no delays in production and we are able to deliver your item on time. 

The "late pledge" store will remain open for the time being, so for anyone who missed out, feel free to check it out here !

Thank you all again for your support - and we'll see you next month with more updates! 

Happy Halloween from Tux & Roll~!

End of Month Update

Good day lovely backers! 

Sharing a quick update to first and foremost, say, "thank you!" 

Nearly all the surveys have been completed - enough to get started on production; one of the many benefits of making our dice in house. As a reminder, we kindly ask that surveys be completed by November 1st to provide the most accurate counts for production. This is also the time that all accounts will be charged for any add-on purchases such as additional dice and sets, so please keep that in mind.

Lost your survey or didn't receive it? A link to access it can be found here:

 https://tuxroll.backerkit.com/ 

This is also where the late pledge and add on store can be found for anyone looking to still get a set and/or some of our super cool add-ons! 

Speaking of which... we have some fun photos to share! The inspiration/challenge coins (d2) arrived today! They are stunning!! They have a great weight to them, very detailed, highly textured and bound to make others at the table jealous (we may have taken a couple to the pub with us today to test that out with great success...!) 

Finally for news, we also received a photo of the enamel pin from our manufactures and we should have them in hand soon. Thanks everyone who put trust in us delivering on these products and purchasing them based on concept art alone. Your support truly means so much, and we are excited to be able to share these limited edition keepsakes with you as our cherished backers. 

Thanks again everyone, and we will be back in a few weeks for a final survey reminder and production update! In the meantime, feel free to follow us on your favorite social media outlet - as we do post regularly. You can find the link tree at www.tuxandroll.com

Farewell until next time!
