I don’t know about you, but one of my first experiences with dice as the main part of the game was Yahtzee. The game continues to be relevant and has even taken on licenses such as Marvel and D&D as you’ll see in this gift guide. But dice games have moved beyond that to include educational ones, cooperative, licensed and more.
This gift guide provides an assortment that will cover a range of ages, favorite themes and game mechanics. See if there’s something for one of your gift recipients!
Popcorn Dice is a fast & fun dice game for 2-6 players! Roll your dice to pop your popcorn, but careful not to let it burn. Each popcorn rolled is one point and double pops are worth two, kernels go back to be rolled again. If you roll four burnt popcorns, you bust and don’t score any points for the round. After each roll, decide to stop and score or press your luck and roll again.

A unique 4-way dice tower stands at the center of this suspenseful cooperative game for 1 to 4 players. Offshore rig, DeepWell4, has ruptured and is spilling crude oil into the ocean at an alarming rate! Your joint task force must work together as a team to avert an ecological disaster… one which threatens to contaminate marine life and devastate the ecosystem. Oil dice spill out of the tower onto the four quadrants of the game board, constantly creating new threats. Meanwhile, players sail the perimeter to contain the spill, remove what oil they can from the water and save the sea life. An exciting reverse tower defense challenge right to the very end.
