Hello.
I Love Qwinto and Qwixx, but i always thought that it would be awesome when theme are over it. So did you know a good and small dice-game with good thematic integration and a little bit / way more complex than qwinto and qwixx? Roll through the ages as example is too big. Perfect would be papers and dice.

Age of War might be up your ally. It's a small dice game that packs a pretty good punch. There's a GoT Retheme or a Cuthulu Retheme if you want to take a closer look in the files section.

You might try La Granja: No Siesta for a rural theme.



Or the wonderful coffee themed roll and write VivaJava: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game



Or for something a bit more esoteric OctoDice is wierdly fun.



My collection favors small box roll and write games.


Though the box is bigger, you can fit Pandemic: The Cure into a smaller box for a good dice based co-op.



I have backed the reprint and expansion forOne Deck Dungeon on Kickstarter but they haven't arrived yet.

Thank you for your Recommendations.
I must specify, for what i'm looking for: I search for dice-games without a board or cards, only paper and dice. Did you know good ones? Maybe more complex or with more theme than qwixx or quinto?

Two of the already mentioned games do fit the "only paper and dice" requirement, both Reiner Knizia's Decathlon and Rolling America (or Rolling Japan, availability can be different).

Basically your best bet is to go through the Roll-and-write list, some of them would similarly fit.

A few I'm familiar with would be The Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game (new, but already out), Welcome To DinoWorld (PnP at this point), Utopia Engine (solo play only, significantly more complex/rich that everything else here, again PnP), and Cosmic Run: Rapid Fire (new, not yet out).
If you're willing to forgo theme, also check out (these ones around the same complexity/weight range of qwixx and quinto but different enough that may still interest you) Dice Stars and Noch mal!.

Though if the "only paper and dice" requirement is mostly due to physical size, the previously mentioned OctoDice is still pretty small (admittedly not as small as quinto/qwixx), as is La Granja: No Siesta (though the box is bigger if you don't want to ditch it, and is certainly still bigger than anything else here).

Rolling America. Seriously, check it out (1) Only dice and paper, (2) more theme and (3) more complex...

Some things on this list may be of interest, though they are solo games, and PnP as well.

I was going to propose Pandemic: The Cure which has already been named.

Also, One Deck Dungeon which was also mentioned, is a nice card/dice game.

Even smaller is Dungeon Roll.

Something with a bit more meat: Elder Sign
