Downloadable Instructions for Making a Toy Brick Dice Tower Castle
Playing tabletop board games is a great way to connect with friends and family offline. Creating things with LEGO Bricks is a great way for children (and adults!) to flex their creative muscles, and keep them engaged with out screens. 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. This DIY instructions post will show you how to make your very own dice tumbler with less than 200 basic LEGO bricks. 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!
