The 9th season of the Dice Tower is around the corner, with more convention coverage, more reviews, more podcasts, more entertainment!

About this project

Welcome to the Dice Tower!  The Dice Tower is a broadcasting group led by Tom Vasel and Eric Summerer - dedicated to using media to promote the hobby of board and card gaming.  Tom and Ryan Metzler produce weekly videos that review hundreds of different games a year.  Eric and Tom produce a weekly podcast all about the games and the people who play them.  Remy Gibson and Tom bring the news on a weekly basis - and all of this can be found at our website - www.dicetower.com.

Now we reach our ninth year, and we want to expand our coverage, adding more videos, new podcasts, more news coverage, and more!  We're asking for your help as we pursue our goal of covering the entire world of board games, and we have a plethora of cool rewards for those who do!  We are dedicated to keeping our show free for download and viewing, and appreciate those who join us in that goal.

This is not a store - we aren't trying to sell you promos and dice.  Rather, we want to reward those who support our show with some pretty cool stuff!

We have custom Dice Tower dice, in all sorts of colors!  Each of them has the "6" side replaced with a Dice Tower logo on it.  

We also have Dice Tower dice towers!  We have new colors of our Litko Dice Towers - black/black, green/white, and blue/red.

These towers can be easily taken apart or transported.

We also have brand new wooden dice towers from Blue Panther!

Update - 1/18

If we reach $40,000, Eric Summerer and Ryan Metzler will both do their top 100 games of all time as a video series this summer.  We all know what Eric's number one game is.  But what about the other 99? - DONE!!

If we reach $50,000, Russell will build a top 100 module for our website, so that you can go in and compare games, forming your own top 100 games of all time!

If we reach $55,000, We will hold voting on the website each month - and Tom will review the game that gets the most votes!

If other companies would like to help sponsor the show and add in their own promos - email us!  Keep an eye on this space, more stuff might show up!  

Risks and challenges

If the Kickstarter project does not succeed,the Dice Tower will be able to continue, but we will slow down some of our projects, as we need new audio and video equipment.

Challenges will include getting all the promos shipped to the correct addresses, doing so while maintaining our current output in videos and audio, and increasing both content and quality.
