These are (usually) small and portable games that involve players rolling dice and marking the results on sheets of paper or erasable boards. Another common factor is that marking choices made in previous plays limit a player's marking choices in future plays.
They sometimes include a solitaire variant out-of-the-box.
The archetype of these is Yahtzee, but all kinds of games have appeared since, with all kinds of twists.
Unlike Yahtzee (whose player interaction is about setting a bar and creating a need for risky plays to win), modern incarnations of the formula may include more direct player interaction. Sometimes in the form of dice selection, and sometimes in being the first to complete a certain goal, locking other players out.
The games in the Yahtzee Family, and its generic version the Yacht Family would be subsets of this family. So those games belong in this family list too.
