Collection: Roll-and-Write Games

Roll-and-Write Games are usually small, portable and quick-playing games that involve players rolling dice and marking the results on sheets of paper or erasable boards. Common features include:

  • Choices you marked in previous rounds limit your choices in future rounds.
  • A solo play variant, though not always.
  • Support for almost any number of players, but not always.

Yahtzee is perhaps the best known roll-and-write game. Modern roll-and-write games may include more direct player interaction, such as racing to be the first to complete a certain goal, dice drafting or other mechanics.

Roll-and-write games may also utilize cards instead of dice to provide marking choices for players. Special dice with unique faces are also quite common.
