In this episode, Trevor and Danny give you their Top 5 list of Dice Games. There is much debate as to what constitutes a dice game. The common definitions are below. There will be some argument to these classifications I’m sure.
1. Pure dice games which include only dice and maybe some scoring or resource markers. Part of the appeal of such a game is the tactile experience of rolling.
2. Hybrid dice games which include dice as an important aspect, where dice are used in a key game mechanism as more than just a randomizer.
3. Board games that happen to have dice as a randomizer. The influence of the dice is isolated to resolving a particular kind of action, Outside of that action, it doesn’t matter that dice were used.
For this list Trevor and Danny consider games that fall into category #1 and 2. Dice must be an important factor in the game. Hopefully this video will help you make an informed decision about trying out one of the games mentioned.
As always, keep playing games!
