In March 2013, Skyrim composer Jeremy Soule used Kickstarter to raise $121,227 for a new album. Four and a half years later—and stop me if you’ve heard this one before—that Kickstarter project is nowhere to be found. And the most recent update has a wild twist.

We’ve been (constantly) playing with SnapDice for a few weeks now. The “game” combines metal dice with a wooden tray that contains a powerful magnet, with a focus on materials and design. Because there are so many wood and dice options, pricing is all over the place, but whatever you choose, you can save by preordering
