The 3 Coolest Dice Games of All Time

When gamblers think of dice games, the first things that come to mind are probably casino dice games like online craps. But there are many other exciting dice games for you to play, including ones without gambling. Join us as we look at the coolest dice games of all time.


Backgammon is a game that’s been around for hundreds of years and is still played around the world. The game’s ultimate goal is to get your checkers off the board, which is called “bearing off.” You bear off by rolling the dice and moving the checkers in a counter-clockwise direction until they reach the opposite side of the board.

The action involves two players, a backgammon board, 15 checkers, a pair of dice and a dice cup. The backgammon board is divided into two sections per player: the outer board and the home board. Each section contains six triangles of alternating colours, for a total of 24 triangles (which are also called points or pips). A player will roll the dice to move checkers from their home board to the opposite side by moving them along open points. However, the player must sacrifice their turn if there are no open points.

These are the basic rules, but there is more to the game that adds incredible depth to how you play the game. 


In Yahtzee, each player gets a scorecard and must roll five dice to get the highest possible total score after their rounds. Each player has three rounds to accumulate the maximum possible number of points through their dice rolls. After each round, the player can choose to put aside certain dice to try to score one of the high-ranking combinations. 

While the game involves dice, the real action takes place on the scorecard, which is divided into two sections. Players use the upper section to track certain numbers they’ve rolled and the bottom section to track specific combinations. 

You can play Yahtzee on your own or with any number of players, as long as you have enough scorecards and dice.

Sic Bo

Three red dice placed diagonally next to each other.

Sic bo is a game of chance that is very popular in Asia. It has also started appearing in other regions worldwide and on online gambling sites. It’s a very simple game to play, with players simply betting on how the dice will land. A sic bo table has every possible combination of dice displayed, with the payout odds listed as well. The main categories of bets in sic bo are:

  • Single number bets: Bet on a single number.

  • Two number bets: Bet on two numbers.

  • Three number bets: Bet on the total of the three numbers.

  • Pair bets: Bet on two of the same number appearing.

  • Triple bets: Bet on three of the same number appearing.

  • Big and small bets: Bet on a total of 11 to 17 for a big bet or a total of 4 to 10 for a small bet.

Once the players have placed their bets, the dealer then rolls three dice (although this is most commonly done these days using a machine). Depending on how the dice land, you might win or lose. It’s really that easy!


One of the most popular dice games that’s undoubtedly stood the test of time is craps. For those unfamiliar with it, craps is a game where everyone, including spectators and the person rolling the dice, wagers on how the dice will land. The person throwing the dice, otherwise known as the shooter, must try to land specific numbers or consecutive numbers during the game, depending on their previous dice rolls. The same rules apply to online craps. 

The first roll is known as the “come-out roll.” If a shooter rolls a 7 or 11 during this roll, everyone who bet on them will win. If they roll a 2, 3 or 12, they will lose. If they roll any other number, they must roll that number again to win. If they succeed in rolling the same number, they stay on as the shooter in the next round. If they roll a 7, they lose and must pass the dice on to the next person.

Since the game is easy to learn and doesn’t require much equipment, it has been played around the world for many years and remains popular to this day.
