Playing tabletop board games is a great way to connect with friends and family offline. Today, we are going to help you combine these fun family friendly activities by providing you with the instructions and a parts list for building a tumbling dice tower. As you probably already know, sometimes the playing board can get crowded, or it takes up all of the table and there's nowhere to roll your dice.
Or maybe your mischievous buddy has mastered that simple wrist technique to get the roll he wants, and maybe you don't want him to have such an advantage.
A dice tower is a common way of solving these problems for table top gamers. A dice tower keeps the dice on the table while also making each roll totally random. Well mostly basic. Our lego tower is super sturdy and compact, which helps it survive the odd drop or two off the gaming table. Also, its shaped like a medieval castle and has a wicked awesome skull on the front. You know what's cool? This is cool! To build this tower, you will need the LEGO bricks listed in the parts table below.
You'll notice we didn't include a color in our list of parts. We wouldn't want to limit your artistic vision by asking you to stick to the dark bluish grey color scheme presented in the instructions. We sure didn't when we built ours! We do not collect any payment information on this free item. So, get started - build a medieval castle themed dice tower for you next RPG or board game night!

You can, however, glue the pieces together and use it as a permanent setup, if you wish. Without further ado, here is the method I used to create the collapsible dice tower. Tools and Supplies:. To build this dice tower, you will need the following:.
Note that there are 2 pieces labeled F. These pieces are identical and will be used for the two upper ramps inside the tower. For the collapsible tower, some of these slots are cut all the way through the foam core and are shown as solid lines. Other slots only go through one layer of poster board and the foam core. These slots are shown as dotted lines on the drawing and will hold the ramp and other pieces in place, once the tower is assembled.
I started with pieces A and B, drawing the outer edges first. Once you have your lines drawn, carefully cut through the top layer of cardboard and the foam, making sure not to cut through the bottom layer of cardboard where the pattern indicates a dotted line. You can then use a flat-head screwdriver or a narrow chisel, if you have one to remove the top layer of cardboard and the foam, leaving a trench just wide enough to hold the edge of a piece of foam core.
Do this carefully, as well, because the screwdriver can accidentally punch through the cardboard. Part C will be the base of the tower. Fitting the tower pieces into this base ensures that the tower will stay together once it is assembled. It also provides a nice surface for the dice when it's time to roll them. Unlike the dotted lines for the slots on sections A, B and C, you should cut these lines all the way through. Once they are cut, you may want to use a flat object that is slightly thicker than your X-acto knife to widen these cuts, as these areas will slide over the poster board in the pieces' slots.

If they are too narrow, you might rip the poster board when you try to assemble your tower. Then, cut just through the cardboard on that side. Now, you can cut through the foam, using the long edge of the cardboard and the line you just cut on the other side to give you a clean, angled edge. I showed a side view of each ramp to give you an idea of the angle.
You will want to use a color that will have good contrast with the dice you are using, but also reflect enough light to make the dice easy to read. I've used both black and gold paints for my towers. The black works well, but if your game area is not well lit, I suggest using a lighter color.
Make sure the grooves for both pieces are facing inward. This will help hold the tower up while you finish assembly. Be careful when inserting the larger, front and back pieces. Foam core is not very strong and if you use too much force you might rip the poster board on part A or B, or tear the tabs on part G. Again, take care not to rip the poster board on parts A or B or the tabs on part H. You now have a fully assembled dice tower that should hold up for many gaming sessions.
If you wish to use glue to keep the pieces together, simply apply glue to the various slots prior to inserting the pieces in the steps above. Paris Crenshaw's Website. Search this site.

It handles a dozen six-sided dice at a time with no problem. The plastic is sturdy and not likely to break in normal use. The fence is hinged folds up for storageeasily removable. If the dice are sitting inside the fence, you can tilt the tower backwards, and the fence will lift up it does not fold downwardmaking it easy to grab the dice. Note the size is a bit small about 6 inches tall. I would have appreciated an additional middle section to make the tower taller.
Also, if dice are tossed into the top, it can be a bit loud, which might be annoying to others in the room, or at a gaming convention. I added moleskin padding to each staircase to reduce the noise a bit, and may add more. So far these dice have rolled well and most of the colors look good. The dice tower is also really nice. Only grievance is when I opened the pack of bags they were stuck together.
