Any recommendations on games that are CSI accessible for a 3 year old who is obsessed with rolling dice? Obviously, I'm not looking for Chutes and Ladders and probably not a roll and write game either. Anything suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What does CSI accessible mean?

Snail's Pace Race might be worth tracking down.

Monza and Dwarves and Dice use color on the sides instead of numbers.

All the above are good.

Snail's pace race probably the best for a 3 year old. Monza will replace it for a 4 year old.

Rory's story cubes maybe a bit older as well.

Yahtzee Jr. in whatever theme your child likes best. Your child can do yahtzee-style set collection, and the scoreboard makes it easy for the child to see what sets are needed and decide what to score on each turn.

Dino Hunt Dice - Even if it turns out your kid isn't old enough to grasp the (very very simple) rules yet, they should have plenty of fun with the theme. Easy to play a simplified version where you just count how many dinos you can get before three stomps ends your turn, ignoring the round-to-round scoring. Bonus points for teaching simple counting.

+1 to Rory's Story Cubes
+1 to Dino hunt dice
Also Tales & Games: The Three Little Pigs

My 3 year old also enjoys Cthulhu dice and rolling for my husband and I when we play story telling games like Tales of the Arabian Nights and the Pathfinder adventure card game (she likes hearing the stories too).

I've played it. It's silly, but fun. And definitely simple enough for a 3 year old.

When my daughter was 3 all we played was Zombie Dice. We would chant "no shotgun, no shotgun, no shotgun..." before every roll. She loved it!

My son was three or four when he started playing King of Tokyo. The base game is all open info so you can help them with their options but still let them play their own game.

There was a cute cat game I played with my daughter at that age. The dice rolled to determine who got the mice. Found it -
