My God, These Cast Metal Gaming Dice Are Glorious

This definitely isn’t our first rodeo with Kickstarter-funded gaming dice, but Trayser Metal Works is cranking out some really gorgeous cast metal designs. They note:

This operation is done entirely in-house, by the two of us, from CAD model to finished part. We are not contracting out any step of the production process. Our metal shop is currently capable of producing 200 dice per week pre-kickstarter. Funds raised will be used to upgrade our equipment to meet higher production volumes.

Head after the break to take a closer look at the designs and learn how they’re made.
