Oh, there are always winners. In this case I'm pretty sure they're in an income bracket most of us never get near, but they do exist.

Molds or plastic products made by molding?

This one needs an official DF response I feel before the KS.
Jay absolutely stays on top of tariff and international trade issues - I imagine that lately like many industry professionals, with a bottle of antacids in one hand and maybe a stiff drink in the other.

I mentioned it to him in an email awhile ago. I am pretty sure it will be addressed in some way when the Kickstarter begins.

I would never say “don’t worry” because nobody really has any idea how all this will play out geopolitically. But I will say that you can be sure that DF is keeping on top of these issues, and their factory partners are too. This is not anybody’s proverbial first rodeo.

3-5 years. W-t-F? I've never (thankfully) had one take that long. That's insane.

Mind sharing what it was?
I backed "You Need These Dice" in August 2014. Estimated delivery was December 2014.
As of now, July 2018, he's shipped dice to a few people, but 99% of backers have received nothing. Off and on the creator still posts updates claiming he's working on production and plans to fulfill.
:shock:

Bad news, included in the list of things confirmed to be made more expensive by the just enacted tariffs - molds for making glass, rubber, and plastic products.

Sounds like our hobby will get hit by the nonsense. 🙁
Isn't it if they were to sell those in the US ? If the molds are made in China and used in China, this shouldn't be a problem.
