Dice Game Rules

Dice game rules are often easy and quick to learn. That's one of the reasons that dice games are some of the oldest games ever played. They go as far back as 3000 B.C. in ancient Egypt and probably even further!


The great thing about dice games is that you only need dice to play. Sure there are easy dice games out there like "Yahtzee!" that have a cup to roll them with, but there are plenty that require nothing more than a pair of dice.

Also wonderful is the sheer convenience of these games. Dice are cheap. You can use some from an old board game, or buy a bag of 200 different kinds at any gaming store. They're easy to get and often cost almost nothing.

Secondly, dice are portable. A pair of dice in your pocket and you're ready to play hundreds of games. All it takes is learning the rules and that's what we're here for!

People often think dice games are just for adults, but kids can have a lot of fun with these, too! There are plenty of easy dice games for children out there. I spent many, many days playing "Yahtzee!" with my grandmother and it's one of my favorite memories of our time together. Learning the dice game rules also help kids practice their math as many games require addition and subtraction to be used.

So what are you waiting for? If you are having trouble trying to figure out what to play on family game night, whip out some dice and try one of these games, you won’t be disappointed!
