Crowdsourcing Mornings: The Dice Tower – 2018

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

They are a group of gamers dedicated to growing and promoting the board game hobby and those who enjoy it. Tom Vasel, Sam Healey, Zee Garcia, and many others produce weekly videos of hundreds of different games each year. Additionally, Eric Summerer, Suzanne Sheldon, Mandi Hutchinson, and Tom produce a weekly podcast all about games and the people who play them.  They also produce a news podcast, Board Game Breakfast and other variety shows, a series of popular “Top Ten” list videos, shopping guides, and more!

Their show gets a majority of its funding from our Kickstarter campaign each year.  They have four full-time employees (Tom, Sam, Zee, and their editor, Derek), as well as a part-time webmaster and Eric.  Last year, their focus was on getting our own studio. This year, their goals are

  • Improve live streaming, both in quantity and quality
  • Have amazing convention coverage
  • Increase the quality of their current YouTube shows

They’re asking for your help as they pursue their goal of covering the entire world of board games.  They have a myriad of cool rewards, but they hope that your main goal in supporting this campaign is to keep The Dice Tower going.  They are dedicated to keeping the show and their videos free for download and viewing, and appreciate those who join them in that goal.

As of January 30th, this project has raised $275,000 of their $200,000 goal. This project has 1 day left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $10, you will get a sticker or card pack.  For a pledge of $25, you will get a game bag.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
