So after recently winning these in the August Games 4 Geekgold list

Games for Geekgold (G4GG) - August 2013 - It just is!

I now need idea's for what to do with these.

Let's see what idea's everyone can comeup with, first though if you are not familiar with these tiny critters:



There have been some cool idea's, creative photo's.

I am looking towards what print n play games could be crafted with these?
A game these could be implemented in?
Any other idea's fellow geeks have?

So lets get this list rolling and use it as a resource for those who win these from:

I made this. I scaled all the paper bits except the scoresheets to 50% to match the dice size. I also use a black indelible ink pen to blacken the 6 face of the flavor dice as a reminder.

I won some of these!!!

My 4 year old likes to play "Let's Lose These Tiny Little Things in the Kitchen Floor, on the Stairs, in Mommy's Room, All Over The House Game" with them!

It's more fun for him than it is for me though, so I'm not sure if you'd want to try it.

I've seen them used during battles to mark the number of hit points a creature has left (or has taken, depending on preference).

I received a set of the mini dice through the Nov 2013 G4GG list.

I've been looking for a game to use these dice with, and came across Galactidice BSG. I own BSG the board game and enjoy it, and think that this looks like a great little solo dice implementation.

I'm envisioning making a smaller game board, moving the Combat Order and Event text to another card. This may allow for a really small board, making the game truly portable. You could also use the dice for everything, using different color dice for the Jump Prep dice (6), Draidis dice (2), Combat dice (varies, possibly up to 6 dice), and tokens (8).

I'm by no means an artist or a designer, but I'll have a go and see what I come up with.

(I forgot to post this here after putting up some pictures at Item for Geeklist "What Print 'n Play Games are you crafting or planning on crafting this month? March 2014" )



I really liked playing Tsuro, but always felt it was kinda large. As always, I turned to the tiny dice for guidance. Got a nice tiny set, and even got to play it on Friday with a friend. It was a little silly, but I just love Qbikaris's retheme.

Looking at the pictures, I really should have put something there for scale.

I guess I couldn't help it. Ever since I first played Euphoria, something in my brain kept screaming "OMG, I gotta make this for the tiny dice!"

Thankfully, I managed to use this as an excuse to test out how well the printer can print on a cereal box. Did OK, but the gray color of the board dulled the colors a bit.

And the cards? I've no idea why I did that. It just seemed to help with the sequee factor in making this game smaller.




I wish I could figure out where to source tiny stars to match the size of the dice. It would be even cooler to find tiny resources, too. Either way, I'll just keep playing my full-sized copy.

The recruit cards and the moral dilemma cards can't be shrunk without making them unreadable, either.

I'm open to suggestions!

I added an appropriate number of mini-dice in multiple colors to my Artscow copy of No Thanks - they fit in the plastic box, maker perfect "chips" and make setup easy since each player just takes all the "chips" of one color . . .
