This review has been moved to GamerBling.com!
I saw thia at my FLGS on Worldwide D&D day and would have bought it in a heartbeat. While not exactly a DM screen (as there aren’t any charts), a screen could still sit behind it and be easily moved when needed. I use mini’s primarily for spatial reference and because they look damn cool so having those shelves back there make it easier to hide what’s coming from my players. I like the two dice towers as well, but didn’t know there weren’t any baffles inside. Ah well, even if I never ever play 4e, which is bloody unlikely, this is still one of the coolest marketing promo’s I’ve seen. Hopefully I can snag one someday. Thanks for the review; very informative and entertaining at the same time.

Not to brag -ahem- but I got my mits one the DM Sreen of Dooooom. (thanks Mike). I have to say pictures don’t really do it justice. But I’m exercising my bragging rights and have posted some details pics for folks to enjoy. Very drool worthy I must say.

Any updates on where someone might be able to get their hands on one of these

Sadly, there are only four ways that Gamer Bling knows of to get one of these.
1) Be a FLGS owner and buy enough stuff.
2) Be a WFGD like the inestimable Monte Cook.
3) Be a member of the elite and trend-setting gaming press corps like Gamer Bling.
4) Pay through the nose on eBay.
Gamer Bling is indeed interested to see what these puppers go for on eBay. He is in fact tempted to put his own up for auction, except that then he would have to set a very high reserve to ensure that it didn’t sell to anyone other than Donald Trump. Or Bill Gates. Or that Russian oil magnate with the huge yacht that has a mini submarine and two helicopter landing pads and sounds like soemthing out of a bad espionage role-playing game.

Noble Knight had one and sold it some months ago. It was quite expensive (somewhere in the $600 – $800 range if I recall correctly. Aaron, the owner, gets his hands on some very rare/unusual stuff. If you drop him a note (once you register you can create a wish list) he may be able to find another. I know the actor Will Wheaton (Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: Next Generation) owns one of these. Good luck. For that kind of money I will have to pass, unfortunately. It really is very cool.

I cannot imagine what compelled you to do this. But you are an excellently awesome individual.

You, sir, are Awesome. I’m now even more determined to maintain the high bid for the Mythic Party charity game.
Also, I love your blog. I bought the Penultimate Dice Tower of DOOM after reading your review!

[…] Now, AvatarArt had collected much great swaggy prizes. And Gamer Bling exerted his influence acquiring other prizes. But, ultimately, a mythic pile of swag at Mythic Party just wouldn’t seem very mythic without an Ultimate DM Screen of Dooooom! […]

I’m not sure how many folks are watching this thread, but Gale Force Nine just recently announced they will be selling their Dungeon Master’s Keep – Ultimate DM’s Screen beginning mid-June of this year. This is very similar to the Ultimate DM Screen of Dooooom! in size and materials, and appears to be a limited production item (not sure of the actual numbers to be produced). GF9 has added a built-in tray on the DM’s side to hold markers, counters, etc. The turrets are slightly different, but the center two still function as dice towers. The thing that really excites me about this is the price – $150.00 USD. Now all those eBay sellers wanting $500.00 USD and up can keep theirs. I have already preordered mine, and can’t wait until June to receive it. Whoot!!!
