Hello all!
I just got Zombie Dice and on the first shake the bottom lid of the tube popped right off spilling all the dice onto the floor. Thus making it a necessity to hold the lid in place (or tape/glue it). Is this something everything experiences, or is my copy screwed up?

That's never happened to me. But I've recently started putting them in a dice bag for drawing rather than the tube anyway. It's easier and helps prevent damage to the label on the tube.

Happened to my copy. Nothing that a little super-glue couldn't fix.

Happened to me as well. Superglued, & we always hold the cup from the bottom. Great game, though. My family has gotten a lot of mileage out of it.

Although the practice of holding the bottom lid isn't needed any more, due to glue, it is still used because of habit.

I actually use a cloth bag.
It has a cord to close, and we use to pull out dice from, so the cup is only storage now.

Works way better, pulling dice from the bag, imo

The first run of the game is prone to this when excessive shaking happens. For the second run we paid for an extra glue pass, but some out there still get a bit excited when they shake and blast the bottom of the cup off. I was considering triple glue for the third printing, but I'm starting to think that some people see it as a challenge to shake the cup so hard that the bottom comes off.

What I do is rattle the dice in the cup and not try to put all of my energy into shaking the dice as hard as I can. And when I teach the game I always smack the cup on the table when it comes to me. That helps pop the lid back into place if another player has been having fun shaking as hard as he can.

You have two hands? Shake the cup with one hand over each end.

Mine eventually popped off so I ditched the whole thing; cut the label off and affixed it to a big plastic Farkle cup. Works great.

We even released a bag for anyone who prefers bags:

My wife made a bag with a drawstring. Much, much easier than tube.

Thanks for all the responses everyone. I was just making sure it was a common thing.

No product image? That's a must-have for any product web page! If it's a generic bag, no big deal. But if it has a good zombie theme, you'll get my money.

There's a photo of the bag to the left of the page, and two more pictures if you click on the links underneath it.

The bottom popped off mine the third or fourth time we played it. I'm definitely going to buy that bag!

Thanks for this, I just ordered two of them. I could not send my son back to college without his own set of Zombie Dice and a bag.

I am sure he will not figure out how to make this a drinking game with his frat brothers.

Damn, that might have been a mistake...
