I am a dice fan. Plain and simple.

I like the act of rolling dice, the feeling of anticipation as I get ready to see the outcome. I can understand why some people hate dice... or rather the dice seem to hate them.
I have this unnatural ability to make dice bend to my will. To jinx other peoples rolls or to call my roll. It's eerie and I have actually won a number of bets by calling a roll.

This list is dedicated to game that have either really cool dice or dice that are just unusual. They are not your average D6 or D10 but there is something different or unusual.

I'll post the ones I like... Please do the same.

Seeing the entry for Pass the Pigs reminded me of Hog Tied, which has a different sort of pig dice.

If you dislike the luck element of dice games you'll hate this. As you can see from the pic dice a numbered 1, 2, 5, 10, 15 and a blank side. Dinos roll different numbers of dice depending on their strength, but given the numbers a puny one die dino could take out a four dice monster (admittedly you'd have to be very lucky). The card used to activate the dino also adds to their combat rating.

Only one die. But its a nice chunky 30-sider. With various results for a hole of golf marked on the faces(birdie, par, bogie, double-, triple-, quadruple-bogie, in uneven distributions!).

The die is rolled behind a screen. The player then decides whether or not to lie about his result. Opponents then guess about the truthfulness of the stated result, and a final score for the hole is determined for that player based on how well he fooled his opponents.

Way more fun than it ought to be.

Surprised this one hasn't come up. My favourite die of all time. 5 sides with nice safe Orc Eyes and 1 side with the terrifying Mark of Chaos on it.



Not sure if the new version is the same but I assume so. Love it when you draw Skyrr's Blowback skaven flamethrower and decide to annihilate an opponent's battle line. The die bounces as if in slow motion Orc Eye to Orc Eye and, with horrifying inevitability, slowly tips over to settle on the Mark of Chaos and your own entire sheet gets wiped in one fell swoop. It's not called the Cube of Devastation for nothing!

Another attempt in the collectible genre. Convoluted rules and hard to find expansions makes this one a pretty harsh mistress.

I really like the feel of these dice - they have a nice heft and roll. The images correspond to the ships (battleship, destroyer, aircraft carrier, submarine and patrol boat), plus an explosion.

Basically pick x number of dice to represent the body/appendeges/head of your
monster. I love the fact that you 1) design your monster fast 2) have a visual
idea of what your monster looks like, by looking at the dice, and 3) most
attacks actually rip pieces off your opponent. I loved this game back then,
suprised it doesn't get more love here.

Only including this game, because our group has NEVER seen a game where the dice
rolled so many 1's. Honestly not sure if the weight is off or not, but I figure
oh well, that's the game designer put in there. too bad for the heroes.

In my opinion, one of the best fantasy dice games ever. Pick a class die (or 3)
and throw to combat/skill check/etc. Only thing bad was the wear off on the
faces (I coated mine in sealer).
Anyways, sold in tubes, in collectible format, with an extra Deluxe rulebook you
buy seperately (a definite must).
