Can't Stop is a neat way to design a press your luck game using basic probability. The design really does push you into thinking that you "can't stop".

Best solitaire dice game (by far). Basically identical to Solitaire Dice from A Gamut of Games. Another wonderful Sackson dice game.

Sharp Shooters is probably the best pure dice-rolling game I've played, combining press your luck and resource management.

While I haven't gotten into the more complex Button Men rules, the core rules of this game make for a fast, fun fighting game that's all about picking which dice to capture with and which die to capture.

You roll until you "crap out" or decide to keep what you have. At that point you often get to decide to go for more points (risky) or go for fewer points while screwing other players. Quicker than Can't Stop. Less Fiddly. More fun.

Seems to belong to this list. 10 mini-games in 1 with lots of press-your-luck decisions goodness. Above all, free if you have pen and paper and few dice lying around - and who doesn't?

I haven't played this much but it's good how it takes Yahtzee goals and puts them on cards, which are then bid on and then bets placed on.

Hey, man, I can't beleive this one hasn't been added yet. The classic hippie dice game. Hard on the heels of Can't Stop! for the one-pip slot! The first custom-dice game I ever owned.

Dungeon Dice is amazing in its simplicity, speed, and fun factor. While the decisions aren't as hard as they are in the great dice games, the game is just nice and pleasant with a cute theme on top, like a tasty cool dessert after a long day.

I just learned of this game and my family and I have been enjoying it. It is a push-your-luck game using 6 dice. The game rules require if you must throw a 1,5, or 3 of a kind to keep rolling and if you use all 6 dice are keepers you must continue to throw, hoping that you will again meet the criteria. This allows chances for catching-up from behind and tension to big throws. A lot of fun.

I like Can't Stop and Sharp Shooters, but LOVE Six Cubes! By far my favorite "push your luck" type game. What I believe makes this version of Cosmic Wimpout, Farkle, etc. unique is the green and red dice. If on your turn you roll a red six, you *lose* that many points. If on your turn you roll a green six you *double* your cuurent points.
