Ako Dice

By: on September 28, 2015

Ako Dice are what happens when an architect gets his hands on the gaming world. Kacha took his architecture background to product design with a trio of Kickstarter campaigns. Here you see his latest and most successful foray, Ako Dice.

Ako Dice represent Kacha's aesthetic overhaul of a game piece dating back at least 5,000 years. Now that dice are mainstays and collector's items in gaming life, Kacha thought his techno-futuristic redesign might be well received. 6,564 Kickstarter backers suggest he was correct. Ako Dice are made of aluminum and finished either naturally or in a selection of anodized colors. In place of the traditional embedded pips, these dice feature custom engraved lines to represent numbers 1 through 6. Each beveled side is also connected by a pip line to create links between the numbers.

While Kacha has completed Ako Dice distribution to all Kickstarter backers, at printing he was still working on getting his own online store up and running. If you're interested in purchasing a pair, follow the link below and sign up to be notified when they are available.
