Hi! I just want to know if it is possible to get some leftover dice or did I have to wait for the next wave?
Cheers


I did keep a few spare sets back to replace any sets lost in the post.
I've chased up everyone who I have yet to hear back from and give them till August the 7th to let me know if there are any problems.

Once that date comes round I'll announce in this thread if there are any left and will put them up on e-bay.

Unfortunately several coaches have been in touch with me to say their dice have not shown up.

I’m leaving it a couple more days and will then assume the dice have been lost in the post and will send out new sets. The rest of my spares will go up on e-bay. So if your dice are not with you yet and you haven’t contacted me then do so now! After the 7th August I won’t be able to replace them and can only offer a refund.

The deadline has now passed so I am assuming everyone who has not contacted me got their dice.

Based on that I have the following spares.

Black Opaque - 4 sets

To start off with I will put 1 set of black up on e-bay tomorrow as an auction starting at £4.99. Will see how that goes before I decide what to do with the others.

I'd love to buy a set of black opaque extras as a gift for my borother who is just joining the game, if you are looking to sell any of the other three sets.

The first set of black dice sold on e-bay for £62 and so they will be sent off very soon. Subtracting the £8 it cost me to get them made, that is a £54 profit that I will split 50/50 with the site. I’ll do a single donation once all the other spares have been sold.

I had a bit of good news that one of the green sets I thought was lost in the post finally turned up. So have put them up for auction along with the 2nd black set. Green Pearl and Black Opaque.

After these end I will have one final set of black dice to auction along with another set that is a little bit different.

62 British Pounds! My word. I wonder if that is a fumbbl supporter or just a BB fanatic.

Well the 2nd set of black dice were even more popular selling for £82 with the green going for £43.

I'll be putting my final black set up along with a special set tomorrow.

Have put up the last of my spares on e-bay now. These are the 3rd and final black set and a “tricolour” featuring 1 of each of the 2017 dice; black opaque, red pearl and green pearl.

Once these go I will have none left and can make the 2nd site donation based on half the profits from these 5 e-bay sales.

As promised I have made a second donation to the site, splitting the profits from the sale of the spares.

They went for the following

Black set 1 – £62.00
Green set – £43.00
Black set 2 – £82.00
Tricolour set – £21.00
Black set 3 – £104.00
Total = £312.00

Unfortunately the first set were lost in the post. I’ve part refunded that buyer and given him my spare set of the original Fumbbl kickstarter block dice as compensation.

That brings the total down to £250

E-bay and paypal fees comes to about 10% of the sale which makes £225.
The 4 sets costs me £32 to make which gives a profit of £193.
A 50/50 split between myself and the site gives £96.50 each

Thanks to everyone who bought dice either here or on e-bay. My blog has a screengrab of the 2nd donation.
