My wife is a skilled carpenter and has built dice chests and such (along with more practical decor). I might get her to see what she could do with one of these.
But it's almost universal that if you haven't done carpentry and you think a quality product is too expensive, you're probably wrong. Parts and labor are crazy these days.

It’s like a universal thing. Look at some of the complaints about the price of some RPG books.

Some things are too expensive for a budget, I get that, but some things should probably cost a certain amount.

Looks neat and all, but that will add up fast.

I don't like that the Kickstarter page itself didn't really go into cost.

You have to go to a separate page to price it out:


Bottom line: basic 4 panel screen with the cheapest wood: $260.00

Want a dice tower with that? Cheapest it will be is a total of $380.

Want a bunch of accessories (initiative tracker, monster inserts panels to write on etc.) You can get over $700 easy.

If you want their serious quality wood, a dice tower with the serious quality wood and a bunch of accessories? You could EASILY spend over $1,500.

It gets expensive FAST.

Glad their getting it and doing well though.

Love the concept but it has one major issue for me: it is landscape in orientation instead of portrait. I prefer "taller" DM screens, not "wider"

If they offered a portrait-orientated version, then maybe I'd consider it.

Game books are at least necessary to play the game. Screens are an accessory; some people like using them but they are not at all necessary. There’s nothing this screen does that couldn’t be accomplished with a tablet/computer, a regular screen and some clothspins, or indeed just some index cards.

I don't think it's "too expensive," I just think it's "too expensive for me." I'm a cheap bastard who is very picky with purchases because I don't make a six-figure income and prioritize Real Life things like mortgage payments above my gaming hobby. That said, fifteen years ago, I picked up The World's Greatest GM Screen, and it holds up fine so long as I don't leave it in my car on a summer day...

They are both luxeries that some fail to recognize the effort and talent it takes to make them and, inmho, undervalue them.
