About

Dice Towers for a price in line with its function (rolling dice)

Like you, we play a lot of board games. Anyone who plays board games knows that rolling dice is a pain in the ass. You lose them under furniture. You ruin your board games by knocking over all your pieces.  

A common solution is to get a dice tower but dice towers aren't cheap. They can range from $30 to $200. But... if all its meant to do is roll dice why is it so expensive? 

That's why we created the Dice Tower of Power. It's a simple solution to a very simple problem. 

Why spend $200 for something that can be replaced by a piece of cardboard?

Why the Dice Tower of Power?

  • It's made of recycled cardboard so its good for the environment. 
  • It takes about a minute to assemble. 
  • It can be disassembled for easy transport and storage.
  • It's durable and can take a lot of punishment. 
  • If you spill a drink on it or somehow destroy it - no big deal its cheap to replace.

3 Dice Towers for $25 (or less)

One other benefit of the Dice Tower of Power is that we sell them in packages of 3. Most games are played with 4-6 people. So with 3 dice towers you don't have to pass the dice towers around. Just pass the dice. This saves time and is a lot more convenient. Lastly, the price. We're selling 3 dice towers for $25. So for less than the price of one dice tower available today you get 3. 

Easy to Assemble!

Instructions are included but just in case we made this video too:

Great for Events and Tournaments

The Dice Tower of Power is great for tournaments and events too. We sell larger quantities of 10 and 100 as well. We hope you enjoy the DICE TOWER OF POWER!

Hand Crafted & Perfected for our own gameplay

We're makers at heart and we LOOOOVVEEE building things.  We made at least 10-15 prototypes to get this thing right (all were recycled :).  We meant to use it just for own game nights but we found everyone wanted their own or knew someone who wanted one so we're sharing it with the world via Kickstarter!

If you're going to do it... perfect it!

How did the Dice Tower of Power come about?

We like ideas and building things. This is how the Dice Tower of Power came to life:  

Eric: "Hey Luke, I got an idea! Check out this wooden dice tower I made like the ones I was showing you online. I dunno why people need something so fancy to roll dice. Think we could make one out of cardboard?"  

Luke: "Yep. I got this."  

Luke starts prototyping with foamboard, cardboard, an exacto knife, and a pencil. (A week passes) 

We played around with the first few prototypes rolling dice through it over and over, testing, refining. Luke, being the awesome maker that he is, puts it into Sketchup and gets it lasered. (Man whats that weird smell? Burnt Cardboard.) 

10 more prototypes later and bingo. 

Eric: "Hey that's pretty cool. I wonder if anyone else would want one?" 

We showed it around the office and everyone took the prototypes to use for game nights and asked if they could buy more. 

Luke: "Umm... It's going to cost us a boatload to get a lot made...."

Eric: "Let's try Kickstarter" :)

Luke at work... Prototype 1

Risks and challenges

We're ready to roll - We have the production ready files ready to send to the manufacturer. We've identified a manufacturing vendor who can produce the Dice Tower at the needed quality and quantity.

The challenge is we need to purchase in sufficient quantity or we can't get it manufactured cost effectively. This is the reason we launched our Kickstarter.
