TNTM: Talking Table Top Dice Games

Top 5 Dice Games

In this episode, Trevor and Danny give you their Top 5 list of Dice Games. There is much debate as to what constitutes a dice game. The common definitions are below. There will be some argument to these classifications I’m sure.

1. Pure dice games which include only dice and maybe some scoring or resource markers. Part of the appeal of such a game is the tactile experience of rolling.

2. Hybrid dice games which include dice as an important aspect, where dice are used in a key game mechanism as more than just a randomizer.

3. Board games that happen to have dice as a randomizer. The influence of the dice is isolated to resolving a particular kind of action, Outside of that action, it doesn’t matter that dice were used.

For this list Trevor and Danny consider games that fall into category #1 and 2. Dice must be an important factor in the game. Hopefully this video will help you make an informed decision about trying out one of the games mentioned.

As always, keep playing games!

TNTM How to play Dungeon Roll

Danny from ZiaComics.com teaches us how to play Dungeon Roll, a fun dungeon delving game for 1-4 players. This game is easy to learn and understand. Games typically last about 15 minutes.

The Dungeon lies before you. You’ve assembled your party of hearty adventurers and have a few tricks up your sleeve. How far will you go to seek glory and fame? Will you risk losing everything?

In Dungeon Roll the player’s goal is to collect the most experience points by defeating monsters, battling the dragon, and amassing treasure.

Each player selects a Hero avatar such as a Mercenary, Half-Goblin, or Enchantress. These heroes provide the player with unique powers. Then players take turns being the Adventurer boldly entering the dungeon seeking glory.

The Adventurer assembles their party by rolling seven Party Dice. Another player serves as the Dungeon Lord and rolls a number of Dungeon Dice based on how far the Adventurer has progressed through the dungeon.

The Adventurer uses Champion, Fighter, Cleric, Mage, Thief, and Scroll faces on the Party Dice to defeat monsters such as oozes and skeletons. The goal is to claim treasure inside chests and to revive downed companions with potions. The Adventurer claims treasure by taking a token at random from inside the treasure chest-shaped game box.

All this fighting in the dungeon is certain to attract the attention of the boss, The Dragon! When three or more Dragon faces appear on the Dungeon Dice the Adventurer must battle the Dragon.

Defeating the dragon is a team effort requiring three different companion types. After three rounds the players add up their experience points and retire to the inn to celebrate their exploits and to plan their next foray into the next deadly dungeon!
