Closed to new Entries!

I'll put this here in the Tavern, 'cuz we're gambling, right? Dice, geekgold? Perfect!

Inspired by the Kickstarter RPG Projects - 2015 geeklist that Steve is maintaining and some joking around about wondering how many dice kickstarters there will be, I decided to pony up.

At this point in time there is a 260 prize for the person who guesses the closest number of dice kickstarter projects there will be in 2015. In the event of a +/- tie, the one who guessed UNDER the number of KS's wins.

This will include any failed, successful, restarted and cancelled projects.

Current reward pot: 270 !!
To-date (12/21/2015) there are: 8 4 dice KS projects.

2. Steve may miss a few Kickstarters, but in the event that happens I'll be using his official count for the final tally.
It's important to note that I generally look for new KS projects using the Kicktraq Categories/Games filter, and every once in a while someone will start a dice KS in another category (usually under the broad category of "Design"). Please feel free to add any of those that you might catch yourselves to the list as I may or may not see them.

I like that idea!

1d100 = (9) = 9

I'm calling a mulligan. I'll stick with the next roll whatever it is.

1d100 = (89) = 89

There. 89 is my guess.

How are you defining a dice kickstarter?

Just functional dice?
Dice for a specific game, eg a new design of Fate/Fudge dice?
What about a full dice game, like Zombie Dice?
What about games with multiple mechanics, eg Bang The Dice Game?

Where are you drawing the line?

I'm not running the show in terms of the contest, but I personally will only be tracking those projects that are making just dice of some variety, not associated as an add-on of a particular project or a needed component of a game.

This.

Not "dice games", but "Hey, here's something you've never seen before...dice made by my dog chewing on a piece of plastic!", or "Hey, metal dice...'cuz no one has done them yet!"...y'know. Dice.
