A Cyberpunk Aesthetic Meets unidice Functionality

Tabletop Times decided to create a dice tower that would not only accommodate the unidice system but also capture the essence of the cyberpunk genre, which is a popular theme in board games and fits also perfectly to their current roleplaying campaign "Reboot". The intricate design of the tower, complete with neon signs, solar panels, and weathered textures, is a perfect blend of form and "function".

Building the Dice Tower from Scratch

From Concept to Completion

The Tabletop Times team started with a solid foundation for the dice tower, using various materials and components to build it up piece by piece. They incorporated elements such as 3D printed window sills, LED lighting, and even salvaged cables from an old mouse. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the tower, from the Japanese signage to the rust texture on the metal surfaces. Noone has ever seen a dice tower like this!

Integrating unidice into the Dice Tower

Giving the tower the random element
