I know there is Marvel Dice Masters, Roll throught the Galaxy, what else to get to have an overview about dice games? They can be collectable and non-collactable, and should be more complex than Zombie Dice.

I really like dice games.

My favorites:

- King of New York (which has that extra "ompf" from Tokyo making it better)
- Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age (civ building in 20 minutes, better than it's sequel imo)
- Pandemic: The Cure (Pandemic in 20 minutes, with fast setup and take-down)
- Apocalypse Chaos (Ghost Stories meets Pandemic the cure meets Neuroshima Hex. Really good game, but it's a very complex puzzle to solve each turn... so you need to like puzzles)

My favorite of them all is D-Day Dice. Storm the beaches in WW2 to reach the german bunker. It's essentially a reverse tower-defense game where the board tries to stop you every turn by nibbling at your soldiers as they progress. The Atlantik wall expansion turns this into a regular tower defense, you trying to stop the allied invaders.
Good luck finding it at a resonable price however... it's oop and will more than likely never come back due to legal reasons. Super-fun though.

I wouldn't consider dice the main focal point but they still play an important part in Eldritch Horror. Test.. after test.. after test.. so much dice chucking!

On the abstract and budget front you could also consider:

Qwixx
Qwinto

though they may fall foul of the more complex than Zombie Dice rule, depending on how you interpret it, i guess.

I really like Pandemic: The Cure it plays faster than Pandemic and still transports the theme.

I recently acquired Dice City in a math trade and we are currently enjoying that, for us it replaced another dice chucker in Machi Koro.

Cant agree more with bottom of the 9th! Great little game with deception and dice rolling. Especially fun if you have any appreciation for baseball. If not, what a great way to get in to the sport! Also has a pretty neat solo variant if you feel like just sitting down and hucking some dice for 20 minutes!
