Hello, my name is Gregg and I think I'm a specialty dice-a-holic.

<hi, Gregg.>

I don't know where the attraction started, but counting pips didn't cut it for me anymore...at first I tried games with massive amounts of traditional dice, but that only lasted for a while...ultimately I ended up looking for edgier stuff: weird mechanics, symbols, colors...you name it.

So maybe you're like me and you can't resist a strange set of dice and/or mechanics...sometimes the goofier the better...

This is my first GEEKLIST, so be kind.

I absolutely encourage you to add your favorite specialty-dice games and anecdotes the more, the merrier

I like that you get to play the Martians in this game. On more than one occasion, I've seen somebody walk up in the middle of the game, watch how it goes, and have it make sense once they figured out the theme.

The latest Looney Pyramids game features twice as many pyramids and twice as many custom dice as Treehouse. The color die is nice (five "Rainbow" colors plus a "wild" burst), but I'm especially fond of the pyramid die (small, medium, large, small & medium, medium & large, small & large). Both dice have great potential for further game invention in the Looney Pyramids system. The pyramid die features in my Freimaurerei, for example.

Lots of dice with different symbols and distributions. Quite good looking too if you ask me.
And the effects of the dice change from one game to another.

I didn't see this one in the list so I thought that I'd add it. It is especially interesting since Square Shooters is a complete deck of playing cards printed on nine dice. It comes with a ton of tiddly winks too!

Bone dice!

I bought my copy in Disney World, at the Pirates of the Caribbean gift shop. I don't know if it can even be found elsewhere.

How did this one stay off the list for so long?

Nice custom dice, but not enough for me, so I've replaced four of the token-based tracking mechanisms with color-coded dice: a dark green d12 for doom, red and blue d8s for each character's stamina and sanity, and a gray d10 for each character's clue inventory.

The forthcoming Elder Sign: Unseen Forces expansion promises two more dice:

Each faction receives the dice of their color. The factions have different distributions and some factions get three dice while others get two



1775: Rebellion is similar but has 4 factions and 3 more that only come into play given certain conditions. All factions have their own dice as well

No mention of Takenoko with its effect die? Every player remembers the six-sider with its special effects (sun, rain, fog/cloud, lightning, wind, and wild-card) and its wonderful tendency to land on the wrong side for what you really planned to do that turn...

The six-sided dice of King of Tokyo qualify too. Depending on the side, you could make an attack, heal a point of damage, gain an energy, or (the most difficult option, as it requires a Yahtzee-style match-three) get one to three victory points.
