I've recently encountered a number of games that are made up entirely of dice. They're nice, portable, and can be played in 5 minutes. While there are a number of lists about games with dice in them, I couldn't find a list of games that are entirely made of dice.

I've got this list started, but please feel free to add more 'dice only' games!

Games on this list must:
- Be played with only dice.
- Not include a board, cards, or any other pieces
- May include a score sheet (or scoring counters) at most.

Using these rules, even a game like Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age is technically excluded...

My most recent dice only game, and the game that inspired this list. Players take turns abducting humans, cows, and chickens but they must bring in enough UFO air support to take out the tanks!

Great fun!

Players eat as many braaaains as they can before being taken out by a shotgun. Easier to teach than Martian Dice, but you only roll 3 dice at a time (which is a negative imo)...

Another recent game, but more interactive than the last two. Players quickly roll their own dice while stealing from community dice to form combos.

I have not played this game (nor do I intend to).

It's basically one die and some scoring tokens.

I play this one occasionally with the Mrs. Its better than you would expect with dependency being more on the small words than being able to spell anything complex.

Bet none of you guys know about this one, mainly because I'm the only owner.
Game consists of 3 custom dice and all you do is roll them. if you get better roll than your opponent you win. It's that bad simple.

Five dice with dinosaur icons are rolled up to three times. The dinosaurs are then grouped into herds of herbivores and/or get eaten by carnivores. Herds of herbivores score points based on herd size and numerical value, and the first person to score 150 unsurpassed points wins.

not sure if it fits the criteria, there is a board in which you put the dice on, but it only reminds you what the symbols on the dice mean.

Simpler than Bowling Dice (uses 10d6 with a pin on one face of each). No strategy element whatsoever: throwing the dice fairly yields an average of 164.
