The Tower of Holding
It started with a simple deck box that we converted into a dice tower. After testing and hearing back from fellow adventurers, we added in a dice tray so that the dice would remain on the table and not roll onto the floor. We then got a hold of a 3D printer and included components like storage space for cards & figures and counters for hit points & spell slots. It became a passion as we developed the Tower formula: Roll, Track, Store & Go.
Relaunch - Explanation
We launched our first Kickstarter three weeks ago with the intention to raise money to start our family business. The intent was to release our first product, the Tower of Holding, by raising either $15,000 or reach a stretch goal of $35,000. The $15,000 goal was meant to purchase multiple 3D printers, as each Tower would have taken 29+ hours to print. The stretch goal would have funded full production to mass produce the Towers by creating plastic-injection molds for large-scale manufacturing.
Listening to feedback from our amazing supporters, we crunched numbers and found a way to offer a wider variety of colors, reduce time of production, and use a material with tighter quality control. The solution? Going all Acrylic.
It’s the same product with all the great features, but it will allow us to do everything in-house with the tools we already have. Going all acrylic lowers our need for a Kickstarter goal to only $3,000, which is to cover the cost of living while we manufacture the Towers for you and start our dream business!
It’s a completely win-win situation as we can deliver more color options, etching abilities, and have a quality-controlled product that we can start manufacturing as soon as the campaign reaches its goal.
So What is the Tower of Holding?
The Tower of Holding is a multi-functional travel-sized tabletop RPG accessory designed to hold everything but the character sheets and books.
Roll: Dice Tower and Tray
Track: Spell Book / Slot Tracker

Risks and challenges
It wouldn't be a Kickstarter without a "Risks" section. Our main risk depends on the volume of orders in relation to getting the product shipped in a timely fashion. It may require more hands-on assembly if the volume of orders is substantial but pledges don't reach the injection mold stretch goal. To counter that, we've already done the heavy lifting with prototypes and engineering, and we've contacted the molding companies. Our files are uploaded and approved so by the time the funding period ends, we'll be ready to go!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
