Games where you roll dice to determine a random coordinate on a grid -- one die as the X and one as the Y.

Roll 3 dice, use 2 to determine the coordinate and the 3rd to choose the token you put there. The interesting part is that you get to choose which die plays which role.

Roll several dice; some of them will be used to determine a coordinate on a small grid of actions. Offers an interesting kind of tactical choice. It's a PnP that's worth checking out.

When adding new pizza planets to the board, the roll of 2d8 (of different colors) determine the coordinate.

In the 2nd expansion, some cards (will) call for you to roll 10 sided dice to generate a random coordinate.

Initial setup involves a letter die & a number die to place the keys and "ogre snacks".

Just learned this weekend, but for asteroids and attacks, you roll for coordinates of your ship.

Roll a blue and white 8 sided die for a set of x-y coordinates at the beginning of everyone's turn and choose one tile to activate in the spot or one of the 8 adjacent spots.

You roll a d6 and a d8 to place fire and possible victims, and during setup also hazmat and hot spots.

As far as I recall (and could confirm with a bit of browsing through a rules summary file), this has a 6x6 board, with dice rolls each turn to determine a random coordinate where production occurs. (Hopefully someone who knows the game better can confirm or deny this...)

Out of the four d6 you roll each turn you can use two to plant a seed, if you have one, at those coordinates in the 6x6 garden. You can use the other two dice to plant a second seed as well, if you have it. The dice can also be used instead for other actions.

When you fire weapons at an opponent's ship you roll 2 dice. One die is numerical, the other has letters. Consult the target's ship card and cross-reference to see if/where you hit your target.
