Mechanical Dice Towers up on Kickstarter

Dice Towers

There is a new project launched on Kickstarter by Moroz Publishing. This is not a board game, but something each of us wants to have on the table while playing our favorite RPGs, miniature wargames and a lot of other games with dice.

These are absolutely unique dice towers with a rotation mechanism. Roll dice by dropping them on the platform and pushing the lever!

Moroz Publishing together with Rightgames company are proud to present the Orc Totem and the White Castle — dice towers with a rotating platform. Unlike ordinary towers, you don’t throw your dice inside. Rather, you place them on a special platform, and let them loose with a special lever.

In addition to those two towers comes MDT-7 — a compact collapsible dice tower. This one easily fits in your bag and takes just a few seconds to fold out!

The project page has nice GIFs showing how these beauties work. Towers are shown in the introduction video too. Should be worth to see for yourself!
