Hi, i'm looking for games that can be played with normal D6 and paper, like Decathlon.
The idea is to have this bag of (many coloured D6) dices and be able to do a few different games whenever we are on a trip.
Any hint?

There are plenty of PnP roll and write games, but you need to have the sheets printed in advance.

A couple of other places with recommendations after a quick search...

We enjoy Tenzi when we are traveling. We pair it with
77 Ways to Play Tenzi. Not exactly a roll and write, but you would definitely have a lot to choose from.

Based on your sport team affiliations and my love of baseball I need to check out this Deadball game.

30 Rails possibly with River and or XL expansions.
Utopia Engine
Raging Bulls and you need a straight edge.
And many more.

A trick with single sheet roll and writes is to laminate the board and then use a wet erase marker. Saves printing the board over and over. If you don't know if you'll like the game yet, just lay the laminate sheet over the board for a game; you could even use 1 laminate sheet over and over for a whole stack of games. Also, you might consider making a 3 ring binder full of roll and write games, just to have them in 1 portable package. Dice go in a zipable pocket.

I can't vouch for the quality of the games you'll find, but there's this contest going on in Board Game Design:

Doom Realm 2 maps, maybe 6 pages total of printing, and only needs 4d6 for a dungeon crawl experience. Some randomized setup increases replayability.
