    You will receive 1 set of the Gray D-PAD D6. - - - - - - This is where dreams were born, the great equalizer, where children and adults alike could vanquish dragons and blast sprites into pixel-dust from the comfort of their living room. This reward tier smells like the best Christmas gift you still remember, feels like the finest paycheck you’ve ever spent, and though none of that is actually true, we hope you love these sweet OG dice. This is where it starts.

    You will receive 1 set of the Black D-PAD D6. - - - - - - It’s been years since your console released. Your collection swells and the buttons on the ol’ OG Gray just aren’t clicking in the way you’ve grown to love. That’s when you see it. So slim, so sleek, so ELITE BLACK! You hit the inhaler in disbelief. It’s too splendid not to buy! When you try the new controller it feels like driving a blacked-out Pontiac Trans Am, racing through the Midnight streets, an 8-bit saxophone soaring in the background as you repeat the same pixelated scene a thousand times over.

    You will receive 1 set of the Pink and Blue D-PAD D6. Golly, you’d never seen someone so beautifully radical. You went to the mall and there they were, standing apart from the crowd, dressed in a pastel scarf, a sunny jean jacket, long droopy pink socks, and sporting the wildest pixie-hawk you’d ever witnessed. They were a natural. A legend. Capable of the slickest comebacks and the flyest combos. Their custom bubblegum controller was holstered on their hip between matches, making them look as if a gosh darn Shogun of the Arcade. You were gobsmacked and determined to one day look so cool while doing what you love.

Someone to shout with, throw your controller with, drink straight sugar and binge play with! The neighbor’s kid is just the coolest person you’ve ever met. Soon it’s all you two can ever talk about. Maze Castles, Ghouls and Gobbies, Bulletproof Heroes, you’ve lived a lifetime by the age of 10. And you’ve done it with your best-friend by your side.

The snows have kept everyone inside, and one day, out of the blue, your BFF brings in that shiny plasticy beauty. Holy smokes! It’s gorgeous. Next level! You, your BFF, and your younger sibling play the same game for months on end waiting for the next release. Suddenly, High School dates and team sports don’t seem so important.

    MIX & MATCH - You will receive 4 sets of Dice. Select from any of the dice sets made available during the kickstarter. - - - - - - It finally happened. After the years of triumphs, after so many losses and victories, so many trials and tribulations, they sat down and picked up a controller with you. The regular squad comes over to find you shoulder to shoulder with your parent, the two of you laughing as PUNCHED OUT! explodes onto the screen. Soon there’s four of you crammed on the couch, hunched forward with your faces glowing in the glory of the game. You’d never felt closer. Literally, their elbows are crushing you. But you wouldn’t have it any other way.

    This is a reward tier for brick and mortar retail stores only (we will check!). MIX & MATCH - You will receive 6 sets of Dice. Select from any of the dice sets made available during the kickstarter. Add $10 per additional set above $60. - - - - - - Most of the Arcades have closed. The only times you hear the jingle and jangle of games are usually at Casinos and Bowling Alleys. Yet, ever faithful and stalwart, is that local games shop. Still there to make your town feel like home. Decked out with pinball machines, two small arcade stations, some card tournaments, RPG nights, and the most excellent Super Night LAN! This is your community, where you take your family and see your friends. And when you dug up your sweet OG Gray relic? Unburied your console from the decades of dust? Well, you couldn’t help but smile when it booted up. When the crowd formed, abandoning their PCs and flashy next-gens, you stood tall shouting joyously at the screen. That night you finally beat Ghouls and Gobbies, and everyone was there to see it. Even your kids.
