Looking for another small and portable dice game like Qwixx and Qwinto where the active player rolls the dice but the other players also get to use some of them. I like how players are always engaged because they always get a choice even when it's not their turn. Thanks guys.

Rolling Japan and Rolling America are very similar to Qwixx.

Extra! - In this case, everyone uses the same dice equally on each turn; it doesn't matter who rolls the dice. Very easy to improvise (as I don't think it's easily available in North America).

Mosaix - The active player makes a Tetris shape from the four dice rolled, then all players must place this piece onto their personal grid. A little bit of downtime as you must wait for the active player to arrange the dice. Harder to improvise as the game comes with custom dice. Unfortunately, also hard to find.

I like both Qwixx and Qwinto quite a bit but was completely underwhelmed by Rolling America. For a quick portable where all players remain involved I quite like Zooloretto: The Dice Game.

OctoDice is similar, but the other players can't follow every die roll - they have to be choosy about it.

Depending on the reason for your portability needs, you could pear Dice Town down to just the 5 dice per person, the cards and small gold nuggets. The board and cups are nice, but unnecessary.

What about Machi Koro? One person rolls and everyone (usually) gets to do something.

Edit - scratch that, MK is not too portable - but similar.

You may want to remove that KS link - KS links are not allowed in the general forum.

Forgot to mention that I also backed Can't Stop Express which is pretty much the same thing as Extra!
