Adam Stewart said...

When is the next batch of dice going to arrive?

Chris Doary said...

Hi Adam,

Thanks for posting the question.

Earliest estimated arrival is the first week of January, or in about six weeks time.

Arch Arch said...

Hello, is there a new arrival of dices ?
Thanks per advance for your answer.

Chris Doary said...

@ Arch Arch,

Thanks for the question.

We spoke with production earlier today. Fingers crossed, we should be restocked the last week of January, or 14-18 days from now.

Sorry for the delay. Our "free shipping" special (all dice orders over $50) will run until the end of February.

Chris Doary said...

I can confirm that our dice shipment will be here by 29 January, or in a few days.

Sorry for the lengthy delay.

Michael DeCicco said...

How precise are these dice? I see the word precise but nothing on how far off each side is in weight?

Chris Doary said...

Hi Michael,

Thanks for posting the question.

The short answer is that the dice are equally weighted on all sides as a result of the manufacturing process. They are also checked with a micrometer as part of quality control. The tolerance is in the neighbourhood of 1/10,000th of an inch, or less than the thickness of a human hair.

For a more detailed explanation of how precision dice are made, I recommend that you read my post below.

Cheers,

Chris

Pierre Turcotte-Tremblay said...

Hi, can I order thé 16mm pink dice or are you out if stock right now.

Pierre Turcotte-Tremblay said...

Follow up question, is it possible to have thé 16 mm pink without de serial number. All of my dices do not have a serial number and I would like to keep it that way. Thanks

Chris Doary said...

Salut Pierre,

Thanks for the questions.

None of our dice have serial numbers stamped on them.

At the moment, we have no pink (or green) backgammon dice in 16mm. We do have two black with pink spots in 16mm.

We also have plenty of pink dice in 14mm.

We will not have more pink in 16mm before May. Sorry.

Bonne journée,

Helen and Chris

Hello,

i couldnt find an option to get information about SH Costs to Europe(Austria).
Can you just give me an estimate for 2 Pair of 16mm backgammon dice?

best regards.

Chris Doary said...

Good day/Guten Tag Mike,

Thanks for the question.

If you only need two pairs of 16mm BG dice, shipping is $8, for a total of $44, based on July's prices.

Cheers,

Now available: light-blue dice with orange pips.

Watch for photo of these (and green dice with orange pips) this weekend.

Samuel Cameron said...

Hey there,

I've had some bad luck with backgammon dice with the pips rubbing out or fading, has this ever happened with your dice? Or is there a dice or pip colour to avoid to decrease the chance?

Chris Doary said...

Hi Samuel,

Thanks for the question.

We have been selling precision backgammon dice since 2010. During that period we have not witnessed fading of the pips. That said, it is certainly possible that some of the colour pips are less stable when exposed to sunlight for long periods, but then you shouldn't leave precision dice in the sun to begin with. Extreme heat or cold may lead to expansion and contraction that might cause a pip to pop out of its well. To our knowledge this has only occurred once in seven years.

As for the pips rubbing off, that would require a belt sander, or some other aggressive treatment. Have a look at the post below (if you have not already done so). You will note that each pip is composed of epoxy roughly 3mm or 1/8 of an inch thick. The pips are recessed into the body of the dice, and polished flush with the surface. They are not painted on the surface of the die, as is the case with most dice.

http://asl-battleschool.blogspot.ca/2011/06/what-precisely-are-precision-dice.html

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Samuel Cameron said...

Thanks for the quick reply, that was very informative. Just one followup question, you say the pips are recessed then polished flush. Just looking at the blue dice w/ pink pips, it looks like the pips are certainly not flush with the dice, in this case is that pre-polish, or are those ones different, or am I seeing them wrong?

Chris Doary said...

Hi again Samuel,

That's a bit of an optical illusion with the pink pips on the blue die. They are flush.

What you're seeing is the side of the wells. It makes the pips appear to be floating on the surface of the die. The top of each pip is level with the surface of the die. Each die is milled and polished flush after the epoxy sets. Alll photos are of finished dice.
