Top 10 Best Dice Games

In the U.S. wild west, the eternal battle between the law and the outlaws keeps heating up. Suddenly, a rain of arrows darken the sky: It's an Indian attack! Are you bold enough to keep up with the Indians? Do you have the courage to challenge your fate? Can you expose and defeat the ruthless gunmen around you?


Bang! The Dice Game keeps the core of the Bang! card game in place. At the start of the game, players each take a role card that secretly places them on a team: the Sheriff and deputies, outlaws, and renegades. The Sheriff and deputies need to kill the outlaws, the outlaws win by killing the Sheriff, and the renegades want to be the last players alive in the game.


Each player also receives a character card which grants him a special power in the game. The Sheriff reveals his role card and takes the first turn of the game. On a turn, a player can roll the five dice up to three times, using the results of the dice to shoot neighboring players, increase the range of his shots, heal his (or anyone else's) life points, or put him in range of the Indians, which are represented by nine tokens in the center of the table. Each time a player rolls an arrow, he takes one of these tokens; when the final token is taken, each player loses one life point for each token he holds, then the tokens are returned to the center of the table.


If a player collects a trio of Gatling symbols on the dice, he fires one shot at everyone else and rids himself of Indian tokens. Who'll get his shot off first? Play continues until one team meets its winning condition - and death won't necessarily keep you from winning as long as your teammates pull through!

A Fistful of Dice
While not quite as thematic as the original game Bang! The Dice game retains much of same flavor packed into a quick and easy dice rolling game.

The components are excellent, it's easy to teach, and while there isn't a lot of strategy here it's still a lot of fun to play.

The game takes only takes about 20 minutes to play so it works great as a filler.

Great Dice Game
Bang! The Dice game improves on everything that Bang! The Card Game lacks. It is fast and furious but the player elimination is not a big deal in the dice game as the play is so quick. The game says plays 3-8 but any less then 5 and you will not be getting the full experience. The game is cheap enough that I would think most people should have it in their collection, especially with the expansion coming out soon.

The components are all solid, and the chunky dice are great production and will have a long shelf life.

My favorite dice game
Probably my all time favorite dice game. The artwork it stellar and the gameplay is polished. Super easy to learn and plays very fast. It does have a push your luck element, but there is definitely strategy involved. My one and only issue is the age range. I play with my wife and 6 & 8 year olds, and after the first game we decided it was a little to adult for them. There is a lot of shooting each other (obviously), so the kids had a hard time differentiating shooting the character or the person. We even tried calling each other by our character names, but the kids would still say stuff like "I don't want to shoot mommy"...kinda funny but sad too. We are saving this for adult/teen game night!

Far better than the classic Card game
This game is the dice version of the classic Bang, while keeps the feeling it has a more neat views of the rules by choices making the game faster than classic card edition, making a great and fluid party game.

The game components are up to quality, being the custom dice the most notorious of all, followed by high quality durable cards with bullet chits to track life.

Good Game to play from 4 to 8 players with ease, as party game to break the ice or as filler between other games. easier get by casual gamers than classic Bang since there is not hidden hand management.

Less language dependancy than classic Bang

Yahtzee in the Old West
Bang! the dice game feels like a combination between King of Tokyo, Yahtzee, and the classic game of lying, Mafia (or Ultimate Werewolf, depending on where you grew up). Each player has a special ability and a health bar, as well as a face down card. The only player to not have a facedown card is the Sheriff; he flips his face up. There are 3 factions: the Deputy's protect the Sheriff, the Outlaws try to kill the Sheriff, and the Renegades want to be the last player left in the game. The trick is that nobody knows who is who other than the Sheriff. Very fun party game, and it is good for all ages. If I had the money I would get it.

My favorite version of Bang!
Bang! dice fixes one of the main issues with the game, the long draw out matches. Bang! dice is a very fast game even with large groups and it feels like you are always part of the game even when you aren't the one rolling.

Polished but lacking
Clever, well-designed game... I love the different characters you can be, with their backstories and unique powers. I love that it doesn't shrug the theme and shy away from the racism/tropes of the time. I love the colorful dice and tokens.
But, the main part of the intrigue seems to be the Mafia/Werewolf/Resistance who's-who mystery the game relies on. That was the only mechanic I felt fell short. You know who the sheriff is, and within a few turns, you know who everyone else is. So, it wasn't an addition to the fun like it should have been. I'm not sure how you would fix it. I'm glad it's on my shelf as an 8 player party warm-up, but I will much sooner be grabbing Mascarade or Resistance to accomplish the same task with simpler rules and more of that fun intrigue.

Better than the card version
It is the popular bang with dice.
One of the biggest problems form the card game is that it has player elimination and the game can take too long.
With this dice version there is also the player elimination, but the game is realy fast.
Is is a lot of fun in a small box.

Oh, Snap . . . er Bang!
So, for a dozen dollars, you can fill out your $100 order and take a chance on a new game. That's what I was doing when I bought Bang! The Dice Game. Was it a good choice? Let's find out.

For your money, you get a hand full of role and character cards, a rule sheet, some bullet and some arrow tokens, and 5 dice. The cards and tokens are of decent quality and good art--the names of some of the characters are quite funny when you get the joke. The rules are short, simple, and understandable. The dice are of good quality and I really like them.

The game can play up to 8 people, but at least 3 are needed to start. There are some cards that help you randomly determine which side you are on in this chaotic shoot-out: The Law (1 Sheriff and up to 2 Deputies), The Outlaws (up to 3), or the Renegades (up to 2). If you are the Sheriff, reveal your role; otherwise, keep it hidden from the other players. Also, there are several personas you can play, each with their own special ability. These are also randomly dealt out to the players, though this time do it face up.

So, what are we doing here? Having us a shoot out, of course! The goal to winning the game depends on who side you are on--keep in mind, you win as a team, even if you die (unless you are the Sheriff). The game ends if the Sheriff is killed. If the Renegades are the only ones left, they win. Otherwise the Outlaws win. If all of the Outlaws and Renegades are taken out while the Sheriff still stands, the Law wins.
.
So how do you play? By rolling dice and making the choice of pushing your luck through rerolls. While I am not going to go through all of the different results of the dice, let's just say that the between the Indians shooting arrows at you, the mishandling of the some dynamite, and some craziness with the Gatling gun along with taking shots at people you hope aren't on your side, there can be some big shenanigans going on in which even the Sheriff can be shot by his/her own teammates.

Finally, is it worth the money? First, let me say two things. The game gets better when there are more players (adds a bit more uncertainty to who is who). A 3 player game is playable and okay, but is a little lacking when compared to larger player counts. Second, the special abilities of the personas coupled with the push-your-luck mechanic makes the dice rolls more exciting and suspenseful than they should be. I gave the Value a 5 because we had a blast.
Is it worth having? I say, absolutely! Its quick (played 8 games in about an hour the first time the family set down to play it) and its pretty fun, with lots of laughs when the dice don't go your way and some Oh, Snaps! when they do. Pick it up for some great filler gaming or for a quick shootout during lunch.

A new way to play Bang!
The Bang Dice is a good and very fast game with rules based on Bang! main game. The proposal is very similar, you have the character and roles, but you roll dice instead of cards.

I like the main game, but the dice have the size advantage, you can take anywhere in the pocket. Very good to take to travel, to play at the airport while waiting your plane!

Much better than the card game.
This game has all the charm of the card game, but eliminates the exhaustive length while still maintaining the wonderful theme and mechanics. It does not fix all the issues with the card game, while at the same time adds dice! It is also a very good bargain for the amount of plays you will get out of it.
