That is an impressive tower! Solid oak and everything! I love the opening at the top and the character of the wood. Good luck getting one for Christmas!

Wow, that is one nice dice tower- much better than mine! Anyway- awesome tower! That baby must cost at least 75 bucks! Someone must really love you if you receive it for X-Mas! Here's hoping you get it...

Well luckily they are more like 55 I believe, and people do love me



There is a dice box he has made too. It is pretty cool.

One of my friends has that dice tower in that pic. I just have to say that the sound that it makes is like heaven We were joking about recording it and making a CD

Alright, I'll bite. What is the Tree Town Open?

And where do I get one of those insanely cool dice towers?

Beside that this is really a nice Dice Tower I wonder why people are willing to pay so much for them. Have you ever considered making your own?

My wife made one for me as a "test - object" to see if it works. And it works really fine. Now we are looking to make a second one with better wood taking the experience we have from the first one (which I still like - it was really a nice surprise and very personal gift IMHO).

And the good thing was, I made a drawing about the size and the dice that should roll thru the tower. So I could make sure that not only standard D6 wargame size could be used but also D8 / D10 / D12 and up to 30 D6 at once (you never know about the strengh of your army).

Just my five cent.

The Tree Town Open was one of the biggest, if not the biggest Heroscape tournament to date.

Session Report here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1136142#1136142

Anyway, Red dontated a Dice Tower and Dice Box to it for the prize table.

If anyone is interested in the Dice Towers, just let me know what kind of wood and where you live, and I can ask Red for a quote. I believe they are about 55 dollars plus shipping. I think my dad is going to get me the hook up for Christmas. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I really dig the way it folds down too. I live in an old house with all the original dark wood, so I want mind to match that, so I can have it folded down on the center of the dining room table with candles and such on it when it is not in use.

Great. I want one that looks JUST like the one in the pic. Shipping to Davidson, NC.


I talked to my dad, and he told me Red is a bit layed up from some surgery right now, so it might be a few weeks before he can work on one.
