There's a geeklist about great card game fillers, so I feel there should also be one for great dice game fillers!

I like these games even better; rolling dice is much more fun than drawing cards, managing your hand, barely able to hold all the cards, etc.!

What do you consider a great dice game filler? And do you prefer card game fillers of dice game fillers?

This is my personal favorite.
It's a push your luck game, but also with some risk management.
Add some screwage by stealing points from your opponents and you have a great game.

Lots of stealing, lots of going back and forth, taking extra risks to take down the leader.
Easy to teach, quick playing time, but mostly FUN!

I've played this one a few times and recently got it for my birthday!
It's a great, fun game but with some meaningful decisions. You have to balance you negative points with you positive points.
It's easier to roll what you need, but it's harder to determine what you want to roll.
The concept is kind of the same as pickomino: roll the dice and grab or steal points, but it's a totally different game.

In Holland these dice games are released by 999 Games and this one will be the next one. Given how I liked the previous ones, this is also a must have!
This one is a push you luck dice game, and it allows players to take the risk the previous players did not dare to take. That sounds like a great mechanic to me and enough of a variation to justify yet another dice game filler in my collection!

A sid Sackson classic. It's a great beer & pretzel game that never fails to be enjoyed by the people I've introduced it to. I'm always up for a game of this. I'm also considering buying To Court the King and Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age.

Knizia does it again in this 6-player filler featuring unique dice involved in a type of area of control dice battle.

BTW, the box says "3-6", but this works well 2 player too if you block off the "4" & "5" steps and use only 0-3.

A Civ dice game? Genius. Audacious and successful attempt to go Where No Dice Game Has Gone Before. The designer's variant, The Late Bronze Age, adds a lot of strategy for only a little extra time.

Farkle on speed. It's a game of one decision, but the exploding die rolls and the "Y.M.N.W.T.B.Y.M." (You May Not Want To But You Must) rule always make for tons of hooting and hollering and really hilariously embarassing trash talk. Portable, and currenly $3.50 for a set of cubes. I love it.

Takes the best part of Clue, which is the deduction part and gets rid of the worse part, which is the moving on the board. Definitely my favorite version of Clue and usually doesn't last longer than 20 mins.

Another in the express line, this game isn't all that close to Battleship, but it's still a good game on it's own.

Another game that takes that bad out of the board game and leaves the good part. It's much more luck filled than the other 2 express games I put on here, but it's still a good roll until you stop or bust type game.

A bit harder to find due to it's small publisher status, Sixis is great! A very very short game with lots of meaningful dice decisions. Reminds me a bit of Yahtzee Free for All but although that's a good game, Sixis is better.

I got to play this for the first time last month and it was great! It normally plays very quickly (3 players - 10-15 min., sometimes less), but it's a lot of fun. Some of the combos aren't always obvious, and we like to wait until right after a person re-rolls to tell them they already had a combo.

This is my favorite dice game right now.
