Artisan Dice was started in March of 2012 thanks to a complete lack of Fudge dice on the east side of Dallas, Texas. So I headed off to my local wood working supply shop and picked up a couple of dozen blanks of the finest exotic hardwoods they had and set about fashioning several set of Fudge dice to give out to my fellow players at the next gaming night.
To say the least my players went the proverbial ape shit over them. They were so well received that they convinced me to make them available to the entirety of the internet. And with that ArtisanDice.com was launched and funding sought though our project over at KickStarter.com.
