Looking great! Nice vid too.

 

Seeing the dice being rolled in a box made me recall an old episode of GameTek by Geoff Engelstein (twitter thread here: https://twitter.com/gengelstein/status/1072558227341090818), which talked about the Pop-o-matic mechanism in games and how, whilst seemingly producing random results over a long time frame, actually has a recency bias with the mechanism more likely to 'flip' a die to it's opposite side than to be truly random. 

 

Where I'm going with this is to ask if you made sure the coffins were chunky enough to ensure the dice could 'roll' enough and make sure things were random?

Yes. Although that basically means making sure people are aware that they're sturdy things and to give it some welly. Also I remember that GameTek episode!

After playing forks and how it look i was sold already but that video was even cooler(well seeing the game plays really :P ) Ive played forks with about 12 people* - ill tell them all about this, I know one will love it as its dice based. Looking froward to seeing the kickstarter live on Tuesday.

 

 

*not all at once - just a good short game to start with before we start a bigger game in the group
