Dice Games: an undervalue option!

We are convinced that a lot of people, most of them, are not aware of the power of entertainment that dice has.

There are games with one or two dice that are perfect to have a laugh while having a few beers with friends, or to entertain children in moments of waiting and even to spend a few hours doing a real championship of strategy and chance. 

A few dice can fit in any pocket, in any corner of a bag or backpack. Always take them with you !

Recommended books about Dice Games

There are a multitude of books about dice games in bookstores.

And we are not going to tell you that we have read them all. But we have read the five best rated ones in book stores and on book lovers’ platforms such as www.goodreads.com.

For us Dice Games Properly Explained by Reiner Knizia is the best: excellent explanations and examples, variations and the best classification of the types of dice games we have found.

An excellent book both to discover the dice games and to go deeper into them.

And a great gift 😉.
