I'd like to start with this idea for my first GeekList, combining two of my favorite things.

I like monster shows, going all the way back to the silent film era, and when it comes to casual gaming, I like dicefests. This is a GeekList about games that are horror or monster themed, and that are dice-driven -- the dicier, the better!

I'll start with the better games I know of to get the ball rolling; please help by adding good examples that you know of. If anyone knows of any dicefests with a vampire theme, I'd really like to know about those!

This is the game that gave me the first idea for this list. I was so interested in Zombie Dice that when I first heard of it, during The Great Zombie Dice Shortage of 2012, I made my own temporary set so that I could play anyway. Now I have my own "real" set, and enjoy it every time I play.

Of course you can't have just the first game of a double feature! I really enjoy the fact that this small expansion adds so much to the play of the original without changing the overall flavor of it.

The latest addition to Zombie Dice adds a special d20 for more mayhem and merriment.

What a wonderful game, and straight out of B-movie Hollywood! When I think of Martian Dice, I always have a mental image of the scene in that old movie where the flying saucer bumps into the Washington Monument -- when you can combine "fun" and "funny" into a good game, you're onto something. I've actually come to enjoy this game a bit more than Zombie Dice, as I think the choices that players face are a little more interesting.

One of the better print'n'plays available to us, this is one of the games I was thinking of when I recently purchased card stock and laminating material to upgrade some of my printable games.

Why are so many of the monster and horror dicefests that I know about zombie games? Ah well, it did give me the title for the list.... This is another of the games I had in mind when I bought materials to upgrade my printing.

I haven't played this one, and haven't read the stories (yet) that gave rise to it, but I know the game belongs in this list.

If you want Cthulu and if you want dice, this is the choice for you.

There is also an expansion: King of Tokyo: Power Up!

This one has come to my attention, and looks very interesting.

It's a dice-driven game, and definitely has a horror movie theme, albeit with microscopic monsters -- maybe it's the "Rage" virus spreading, making it a perfect entry for this list!

Here's a game that fits what you asked above, vampire + dice fest..

Ironically enough, while the game only comes with 1 D10 - it is suggested that players need at least 5 to make the game run smoother...

As described here: Re: Any thoughts?
kimbo partially wrote:
I can sum up my first impression of the game, after one play, in two words:
dice fest.

My wife and I bought this game years ago when it came out (2006), but haven't tried it yet. I think we opened it up and got somewhat confused with the rules and more or less forgot about it. Over the years I've often looked at it and thought that it would soon find its way to the table. It's still waiting patiently though...

Here we have a dice driven worker placement type of game that is all about controlling your evil monstrous minions around the town.

The main mechanic here is dice, and there's a good handful to roll!
