Want to add some fair flair to your next game night? Time to make
yourself a dice tower! Dice towers are a great addition to any game night for use with simple games like Yahtzee or Monopoly to more in depth tabletop games like D&D. Not only do they look nice, they also take away any possibility of cheating dice rolls since the tower rolls the dice for you. Just drop in the die and let gravity do the rest!
This tower build was improvised to work with a wood block that seemed too small to make a standard dice tower out of. We ended up redesigning it to work with the block by making a mirrored cut which we glue together to achieve a good proportion. This design incorporates a tray to catch the dice resulting in a one-piece finish.
