I will be married next month and our wedding favors are dice. We'd like to have a couple score cards printed and placed at each table so that people have something to do during the downtime (and something for the kids too).

I need a listing of games that require nothing but dice. Any ideas? Yahtzee is an obvious choice, but what else is there? I'm not a big fan of dice games so I don't really know what is out there.

Are they just standard dice?

How many per table?

A lot of these require special dice, but there are a handful that use standard dice:

I ended up using these three because they are the easiest.

Yahtzee
Katego
Ship, Captain, and Crew


I'm still open for ideas, so feel free to suggest more if you have any thoughts for simple dice games that use any amount of d6 in a single color.

I prefer Yamslam to Yahtzee, but for a wedding I can see why you might go with familiarity.

Looks like that game requires chips. We need games that use nothing but dice.

This one might just do the trick, and I'd guess a fair number of folks might have played before.
