The FLUME and FLUME Bundle....

All the pictures below show the PINE version of the FLUME and FLUME BASE.

The FLUME comes with two halves. Designed to work with The Dice Base System and the optional FLUME base.

The FLUME Bundle comes with the two halves AND a BASE which is designed to form a clam-shell dice and accessory holder.

FLUME  - Two Pieces (Two Halves)

FLUME Bundle - Three Pieces (Two Halves + Base)

The FLUME Bunlde comes with three parts. The FLUME with just two. The Bundle features Two Tower halves and one base. Together they form, The FLUME Bundle!

A dice tower so fun, your dice will think they've gotten tickets to an amusement park. 

But wait, this isn't your average gaming accessory. Like everything from ZucatiCorp there's more than one use for all parts! Inside you can store a pad of sticky- notes, more than a full set of dice and a pen, or two!

No really. Its freaking awesome.

(And it breaks in half for storage)

The flume is only 6.5" tall x 1.34" wide x 2" deep. 

Just like it works as a clamshell storage case for your dice, pens, paper, and minis... the parts stow on the OUTSIDE too! Just want a compact rolling tray with cool steps and a nice big landing area? You got it... The rest stows underneath.

As you can see from the videos The FLUME is designed to eject your dice with just the right amount of speed and spin. This keeps the randomization high and the number of dice on the floor low.

Roll the dice uphill for a challenge....
Roll the dice uphill for a challenge....

You can use The FLUME with any of our Dice Base 2 bases or by itself. Its got a nice little magnet on its base so it'll stick to anything magnetic: soup cans, camping plates, a steel workbench, whatever! 

Maybe you like to roll one at a time... that works nicely too.

Every bump, flat, corner, angle and knob inside the FLUME is calculated and engineered to produce the most active and random twirling, bouncing, yawing and pitching of your dice as they traverse the FLUME CHUTE!

Hide  your favorite Standard D6 or similar sized die INSIDE the FLUME while your use it. Bring good luck? Punish that die? The use is up to you.

Here's what you can do with The FLUME and a pair of Dice Base 2 Bases. 

Holy mother of rolling dice... did that dice tower just go INSIDE those bases? No. That FLUME went inside those two bases. Yes it did.

Notice the size of The FLUME compared with the standard sized dice tower... super compact yet it delivers massive results.

Hey! I've seen dice towers with magnets before... 

Set some dice aside on the royal landing at the base of the FLUME... and roll that special die...
Set some dice aside on the royal landing at the base of the FLUME... and roll that special die...

Yes, yes you have. But this isn't one of them. This uses industrial N52 1/4" magnets each with 4lbs of pulling force. and they're 6 of them.. yea SIX. Not only that, these magnets are only responsible for holding the two sides together... not supporting any ramps, or creating a structural joint. And besides... this is a FLUME not a tower... 

The tension builds.. what will the number be?
The tension builds.. what will the number be?

All 3D ramps inside the base feature flats, detentes, and cylendars at precise locations to maximize the number of X  - Y - Z tumbling of all the dice shapes inside the flume. 

And then.... BAM! SUCCESS!
And then.... BAM! SUCCESS!

This means your dice not only fall, roll they yaw and pitch. You're getting what many dice towers lack, true random and high-action rolling through the FLUME CHUTE.

When you're ready to pack-up, the FLUME couldn't be easier to load. Put all your dice IN the FLUME CHUTE... and snap the base on to its top.

Ok, all FLUME CHUTE jokes aside... this little FLUME randomizes your dice better than towers with flat ramps sticks or steps 2-3 times its size and many times its cost.

Don't forget your pen and paper!
Don't forget your pen and paper!

Size?

When broken in half for transport of storage its only .67" deep. That's less than a D20 in thickness... Holy rolling Dice!

Where do the dice come out?

No dice coming out here... that's for sure..
No dice coming out here... that's for sure..

 So how do you know the FLUME is working?

Dice go in the top, they come out the bottom, and you obliterate your enemy... that's how you know its working.

 Ok, so the outside is super minimalist and hip, but what about the inside? Just one baffle like other towers?

No way! Lots of carefully engineered baffles designed to maximize your RNG experience.

Risks and challenges

I've run several successful Kickstarter Campaigns including multiple campaigns simultaneously, and have a 100% successful track-record of delivering rewards to my backers on-time or early.

I've been working on this project for several months now, and its at the stage where the only thing remaining is to mill out these awesome FLUMES and ship them out the door.

That being said... I've staggered the delivery schedule to accommodate some for the holidays and most for not. I mean I have to be realistic too...

This is a 100% American sourced project using american goods, and labor.

With any project there can be unforseen delays in materials, shipping or other logistical factors. I've dealt with these issues in my other campaigns so well, that my backers were un-aware they existed, until I informed them the issue was resolved.

My goal is 100% on-time fulfillment with 100% backer satisfaction.
Ask, anyone who's backed one of my projects, you'll find that for me, this isn't just talk, its how I do business.
