In this video we take a look at 8 of our favourite Dice Games to play with friends or the entire family.

Dice have been around for over thousands of years and been used in games like Yahtzee, Boggle, Monopoly, Ludo, Trouble, Backgammon and even Dungeons and Dragons. Their use has been to allow players to progress around a game board, resolve combat actions, build combos and are often used to determine the starting player.

Dice driven board games have continued to evolve as modern board game designers have incorporated dice as a mechanism for making games fun, engaging and highly interactive.

People are often divided when it comes to engaging in a game that involves dice due to the ‘luck’ factor involved. Designers have designed mechanisms where this element of luck can be mitigated via a player’s direct actions.

The evolution of dice games has reignited the nostalgia and introduced the idea of board gaming to people alike.

The Board Game Sanctuary is a family friendly board game channel that aims to introduce the board gaming hobby to new and seasoned players in a light, fun and humourous way.

    Great video. You should mention about the power up! expansion for King Of Tokyo. For me, it's a must addition as the monsters now have some unique powers to compliment each thematically. Love Roll for the Galaxy and Roll Player.

    My favorite is the wonderful Las Vegas The Dice Game, nominated for the Spiel des Jahres 2012. Simple, brilliant, great fun and my students love it.

  27. Flavio Sousa 1 month ago

  31. The Boardgame Buddies 1 month ago

    make sure to get the 'power up' expansion to King of Tokyo!

  32. Rachel Maxwell 1 month ago

    These games all seem pretty interesting in their use of dice as game mechanic. Whilst all of them seem fun. I find Sagarda, Blueprints, Steampunk Rally, Roll Player, and Seasons to be more interesting and not as complex as Roll for the Galaxy. Even though I haven't played King of Tokyo, isn't a theme that I'm very keen on.

    As for the video itself. It would have been nice if you added a little summary towards the end just to recap the games and also mention if you would do a more complete review or example playthrough. I enjoy your quirky humour.

    Thanks for making these videos and keep them coming!
