145 Million Years Ago...
Large reptiles roamed the Earth, and set the yet to be invented wheels in motion that would lead to the tabletop dinosaur board games of today. To facilitate the enjoyment of these games I created a T-Rex dice tower. The files include the base plain files plus files emblazoned with one of the logos of a popular current dinosaur board game. Also included is a file for a flask to catch and collect the dice. The dice tower has been tested with up to 20mm dice.
Since my printer only has a base of 120mm x 120mm x 120mm I broke the print into 3 pieces:
- Front (printed on side)
Front requires supports in the dice tube
- Tail (printed on side)
Tail requires supports in the dice tube
- Leg (printed on side)
If you print the full version be aware the supports in the dice tube may be difficult to remove from the middle. (be advised I've never printed the full versions)
A complete dice tower consists of a front section, a tail section and a leg section. Just glue them together and you are set. The flask sets under the tail to catch the dice as they exit the T-Rex.
I play a lot of games and I just love dice towers. After playing Dinosaur Island I just had to make a dice tower to roll those wonderful DNA dice. jourdo2k3 designed a T-Rex meeple (Tyrannosaurus Rex Meeple by jourdo2k3) that I turned into a giant Dino meeple and some beakers (Beaker Meeples by jourdo2k3) that I turned into a giant flask. The DNA cookie cutter from Kumquatum (DNA cookie cutter by Kumquatum) was used to emboss the flask. Thanks to all.
The Dinosaur Island logo is used strictly as a homage to a truly great game.
