it's pretty dicey

Mr. Pip’s Double Cross is a modern re-imagining on the classic dice game that’s been played around the world, known as many different names including- Liar’s Dice, Bluff, Mexicali, and Perdo. It is a wild, fast, stimulating, and hilarious party game that transcends language barriers and cultural differences. When not in use, the game assembles into a beautiful and curious sculpture that you leave out to sparking conversations and serves as a reminder to play. With the infusion of game play into an elegant form we like to call ‘Dis-play-able’, we have received many awards and recognition, including Red Dot, IDSA, Dieline, Core77, Spark Awards, and A’Design.

fewer better things

With a minimalistic approach to design, our mindset is to make “Fewer Better Things.” Thus, we aim to create a high-quality product that will stand the test of time. This philosophy was applied to every element of the product, including the packaging, which is made from environmentally conscious molded paper pulp, which can be recycled, or will decompose, helping to stop the pollution of the world for our children. The packaging also utilizes the iconic form of the product, which tessellates and stacks to reduce shipping and storage volume by 30% compared to a traditional box, reducing our consumption of precious energy, and the overall carbon footprint of the product.
