My name is Jason Hite, I am a product designer and sculptor...plus an avid table top gamer! For years I have wanted to combine my love for gaming with my love for surreal dark art. Back in 2015 I created a surreal tower sculpture inspired by the amazing paintings of Polish surrealist artist Zdzisław Beksiński. So many people responded to the piece I decided to create a version at an affordable price that could be used as a dice tower for tabletop gaming. I like beautiful art that also serves a function.
The Surreal Dice tower is; 7.5" tall x 6.5" wide x 4.25" deep and made of Poly Resin that is cast in a semi-soft material making it extremely durable. It fits standard size 12mm and 16mm dice for D&D and other table top games. Sorry, dice not included.
To make sure the dice roll randomly, I have added 2 sets of stairs on the inside of the tower for them to bounce on as the dice exit onto the collapsed tower tray. We have been using the Surreal Tower in our gaming nights. it looks great along side the types of games we play and it certainly helps my kids keep the dice on the table when they roll ;)
Need some dice with your tower? Check out these marbleized dice that glow in the dark! Ghostly Glow Orange is a 7 dice Polyhedral set we will also be offering.
I have tried hard to make each of the 4 sides of the sculpture slightly different with interesting characteristics, textures and details. This could also be some great miniature terrain too!

Risks and challenges
I'll be completely honest. This is my first Kickstarter project and it feels slightly alien to me still. However, I have 19 years in product development experience working in the Halloween industry. I have worked with several factories to bring great products to market over that time and am confident this is absolutely achievable. I am working with a very reputable factory to make this affordable and efficient. Once we get funded, we will be placing an order. As soon as that order arrives from China, we will be shipping directly to you!
The biggest risk is:
1. I die shortly after the campaign, but I think Erica, my better half could still carry out the task.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
