Dicey Curves is a dice-driven car racing game, where the track is constructed from a deck of cards. To move around the track, you need to roll dice combinations: straightaways allow you to move for whatever combo you can make, advancing one space per die in the combo, while curves contain gateways that require specific combos of dice – from one to five – in order to pass.
Five-dice combos are tough when you have only five dice to roll, but thanks to "exploding dice" you'll have a chance. In game terms, every 6 you roll allows you to add another die to your roll. To balance the luck sometimes inherent to dice games, players have control chips that allow them to reroll dice, add additional dice, switch positions between cars, and even control other players' cars.
With the track deck, players can construct traditional pre-configured tracks or race along a "mystery rally" route.
