About

The Gemini Dice Tower and Wall System™ is an awesome re-thinking of what Dice Towers and Component Trays should be, and should be able to do.

Fully modular, massively magnetized, and wholly indestructible, your new Gemini Dice Tower and Component Walls are going to make your next game night an event to return to! 

Upgrading the concept of the dice tower to the next level wasn't easy.  In fact, that's not even what I set out to do.  I just wanted a really awesome dice tower that wouldn't fall apart as I played with it and could also be played with like a toy while waiting for my turn!  

What I ended up making, after a year and a half of redesigns and over 40 prototype runs, is a unique, natural, and truly modular Dice Tower and Wall SYSTEM that is perfect for RPGs, board gaming, as well as casual toy-time for adults and kids alike.

Built with twenty (20) 7.2mm rare earth magnets per Tower, and twenty to thirty-two (20-32) magnets per Component Wall, The Gemini Dice Tower & Component System redefines "modular".

Build a GM screen, a fortress, or edge your entire table with them.  

Each Tower arrives 100% ready for battle!  

Fast and easy to travel with, requiring no laborious assembly, or tedious tear down.

It's everything we believe a Dice Tower should be. 

  • Eye-catchingly unique
  • Strong
  • Easily portable
  • Able to handle fistfuls of dice
  • Naturally sustainable
  • Fun to play with, and 
  • Capable of lasting you forever

Each Tower is assembled from two halves.  You customize your Towers by choosing the unique wood species for each half, and we then custom make each half from a piece of solid wood just for you.  This makes your Towers custom, beautiful, and nearly invincible!

The Tower halves are held together with a really large version of the highest quality magnets available on the planet, 7.2mm neodymium (aka: Rare Earth) magnets.

The Gemini design is not only elegant and strong, but also allows you to hot-swap your Tower halves to change their appearance to match your character or the game's environment.

Each Wall is assembled from two unique component trays.  You customize your Walls by choosing the unique wood species for each half as well as the Inset Style(s), and we then custom make each half from a piece of solid wood just for you.  This makes your Walls custom, beautiful, and nearly invincible as well.

The Component Wall halves are held together with the same excessively large, high quality magnets: 7.2mm neodymium (aka: Rare Earth) magnets.  

Component Walls can be connected to any Tower's side or back, as well as end to end with any other Wall.  This is true assembled (2 halves together as 1 unit), or as individual halves!

There are 6 Wall Inset Styles to choose from:   

Every Wall Inset Style can be hot-swapped with any other Wall Inset Style on the other half to change their appearance and/or functionality to match your need in the moment.

Design your wall to fit your needs.   Choose matching Wall Inset Styles for each half, or choose two different halves!  Any combination of Wall Inset Styles work together.

All Walls Inset Styles are the same price with the exception of the "GM Screen" wall.  The GM Screen Wall design is a Premium design and is only +$30 per Wall half.

All Wall options are available from the start! Design your perfect castle today! 

Any wood option can be chosen for either half of your Tower(s), as well as your Wall(s).  

Any permutation of Tower halves, Wall halves, and woods can be chosen.  

...plus, every wood on our list is sustainably sourced!

A bit about each wood:

Maple - Featuring a light almond color, at a very affordable price.

Walnut - Featuring a beautiful dark chocolate brown, which we're offering at basically the same price as Maple to make that stunning combo even easier to select.

Redheart - Featuring a gorgeous (and intimidating!), naturally occurring, dark crimson-red hue and high contrast grain.  Redheart is one of our Premium wood choices, as its cost is ever rising due to its immense beauty.

Yellowheart - Featuring a phenomenal, naturally occurring, bright yellow hue and a holographic grain.

Padauk - Featuring a deep rich and totally natural red-orange color Paduak is one of our heaviest woods.

Purpleheart - Featuring a stunning, naturally occurring, purple hue with subtle streaks.

Cherry - Featuring a gentle and classy light tan hue with occasional pinkish notes. 

Teak - Featuring a lighter brown like coffee with lots of cream.  Teak is one of our Premium wood choices, as it is one of the single hardest woods on the planet.

Shou Sugi Ban - (pronounced Shou Soogy Baan)  Featuring the ancient Japanese technique of charring wood to build up carbon to protect from it the elements, we blowtorch a Cherry wood base to give you the coolest option ever presented.  A great option for ensuring your indestructible Towers are also weatherproof!  Shou Sugi Ban is one of our Premium wood choices. 

All wood options are available from the start.  

Choose your preferred combination today:

*All of our woods are secure and/or sustainable!  We do not use any woods that are endangered, or that are from non-sustainable sources.  

 Engravings: +$9 per engraving, Tower or Wall.  

Any unlocked image can be engraved into the front of your Tower or side of your Walls. Size Varies; approx 2x2in on a Tower's Front, to 3.5x3.5in on a Wall half.

I highly recommend that when engraving Towers, you choose the same wood species for both halves, as each wood takes the laser differently, and the appearance/depth of burn will vary from wood to wood.

Permanence Option + $15

Permanently seal your two Tower halves into a single unit.  We'll replace the inner magnets with pegs, and glue your tower together permanently.

Pencil Slots + $6 to add 2 holes for holding standard size pens/pencils to the parapet portion any Wall half.

Leather Inlay Upgrade + $9 Permanently added to your Coaster or Rolling Tray.  Price is per Wall half.

Kickstarter special, any color shown for only $4/e (includes shipping).  Each package includes approximately 30 tokens of its color.

Approx .75in, 19mm per token
Approx .75in, 19mm per token

From our awesome friends at Norse Foundry, we're able to offer a Kickstarter special of any set metal shown for only $12 + Free Shipping!  (MSRP $15!)

Mystery Dice Limit: 10/pledge.  The more you add the higher your chances are of a super rare!

Shipping Note: All Add-Ons ship FREE with any Tower or Wall pledge. 

Add-Ons Only?  If you only want the Add-Ons, please pledge at the "No Reward Tier", and pledge the accurate amount for your Add-Ons.  We'll get it sorted in the Pledge Manager.  When shipping without Towers or Walls, shipping fees will be assessed at the "1-2 Units" shipping tier price.

How to pledge:

  • Choose a quantity of Towers, and the wood for each half. Consult the Tower Pricing Matrix for total cost.
  • Choose a quantity of Walls, the wood for each half, and the style for each half. Consult the Wall Pricing Matrix for total cost.
  • Choose optional add-ons: engraving, leather inlays, magnet dice.
  • Pledge the total amount for all items to the Tier that most closely represents your castle design: X Towers and X Walls.  Any imperfections in math will be resolved in the Pledge Manager.
  • We will sort "Left and Right" halves, what Wall Inset Styles you desire, and what add-on features you're planning, all inside the Pledge Manager after the campaign closes.

Need help?  Ask in the comments, we'll math it out for you.

This is a real Kickstarter.  This is a really cool idea for a really cool, totally new product, that we really believe in.  In fact, it's a personal dream of mine to make a product like this for you!  But I really can't make it without you.  

I hope you can see in the quality of the campaign, in the videos, gifs, and stop motions, how much we enjoy this product, and how much fun it is to share with friends.  I trust you'll have the same experience sharing it with your friends too!

And so I've spent an honest year and a half working to build the perfect prototypes that will work in production and last you forever, all so that I can bring this to Kickstarter for the pleasure and enjoyment of you and your friends.  

I already have mine, the prototypes (!).  I want you to have yours too!

Working to bring the gaming community to more folks, we're stronger together!

Risks and challenges

Incredibly experienced at Kickstarter, we've become very good at product design, making board games, making dice, and fulfilling to 100% of our backers 100% of the time. That's the easy part. The hard part is that this is the first time Gate Keeper Games has endeavored to make products out of wood!

We're seeking to overcome that challenge by working together with a team of qualified and experienced woodsmiths who are themselves gamers, and thus also truly passionate about this project!

Beyond that we've also prototyped every possible permutation of the Tower and Wall combinations, multiple times, to experiment with functionality and long-term product health, which gave us the experience of knowing how much wood, effort, and time it takes to make each unit.

What that means for you is, that we can come to you confident that we're ready to offer these to you, promising a reliable timeline and skilled work. What that means for you is, that you can come to us confident that you will be getting an amazing product, in a timely manner, that radiates as the coolest dice tower on your gaming table.

We thank you for your pledge, and offer you our gratitude for your choice to invest in us.
You're gonna be glad you did, or we'll give you your money back!
