Dice Tray

Well, if you missed their previous Kickstarter, back in 2018, you’re in for a treat now. We reported on this premium board game bag solution during their first campaign and were excited to find out that they had more in store in their current Kickstarter campaign.

There are several cool new products in GeekOn’s latest offering starting out with their new pak, the SpacePak. The SpacePak can hold up to 50 pounds and is composed of 500D ripstop nylon material. The zippers are sturdy and made of a durable rubber for easy and fast opening. What’s super cool about these bags is just the pure open storage capacity that they provide. I found it excellent for not only board games, but those with role playing needs (it held nearly all of my D&D 5e books along with tokens and mini cases.

But that’s not all! Also available in this Kickstarter is their ShuttleTote. Now this was intriguing as I’ve never quite seen a design like this. The ShuttleTote not only provides a large capacity for your board gaming needs but it also will “wrap” up around your items – eliminating any possible additional space.

Above you can see just the huge capacity that the tote alone provides. Below you can see how it not only zippers up, but allows you to roll up the top and buckle it in – making your tote compact. It also features a huge front pocket for additional accessories. It’s super comfortable to carry and simply a fantastic design, in my opinion.

In addition to the game bags, GeekOn is providing quite a few additional add-ons. Probably the two coolest are their new (and “Huge”-ified) dice tray. It is very similar to their first design, but almost quadruple in size. What’s great about their dice solution is that the bottom of the box is easily removed and serves as a dice tray itself. The main portion unzips and allows for storage of dozens of dice sets – all while providing a nice foam bottom layer to protect them.

New to this Kickstarter, however, is their innovative dice tower. The tower folds up into a flat accessory that can actually be stored within the XL dice tray. It folds out quite easily into a tower as pictured above. It will also work with their original dice tray.

There are many different board game bag solutions out there. After years of trying different bags I was lucky enough to come across GeekOn and purchase their latest solution at GenCon. I was happy enough with that offering and had no idea that this was just the start of a line of innovative products. In my opinion, they’re quite affordable and a must have for any board gamer that has need of a carrying solution! You can find out more over at their Kickstarter page here.

Snapdice has just started a Kickstarter Campaign for one of the more unique dice rolling trays out there. The tray itself is a beautiful wooden tray made with custom hardwoods and inlays, but what makes it unique is that a rare earth neodynium magnetic strip has been embedded in the tray. When the custom steel dice are rolled, they snap onto the strip. The Kickstarter offers a wide variety of exotic woods, and there are even options for sets of steel polyhedral dice.

The Kickstarter for SnapDice continues through July 26, and is expected to deliver in September 2017.
