How to Play the Dice Role Game
Alright, let’s get down to it. There may not be any dice in this game, but you will be using the numbers found on a dice, namely 1-6. To each number, you will assign an action. For example:
- 1 = a spin
- 2 = fist bump
- 3 = macarena
- 4 = be a monkey
- 5 = cast a spell
- 6 = do a push up
Step 1: One person is the commander and stands at the front, facing everyone else. In this game, it’s everyone for themselves, so no teams.
Step 2:The commander shouts out a number, and the first person to complete the action associated with that number wins that turn.
One round contains 10 turns (or whatever works for you). You can play three rounds and whoever has the most points by the end, wins. You can extent this game by allowing the winner of the round to become a commander and choose 6 new actions to accompany the numbers.
As you can see, this game can be made as easy or as difficult as your imagination allows. Get weirder and more complicated with the actions; for an added challenge, instead of shouting out the numbers, shout out equations instead.
Alternative (Educational) ways to play the Dice Role Game
This way everyone must solve the equation and do the task associated with that number. That makes this game great for school activities, parties, team building, fitness and sports, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and anything else you could think of.
Alternative versions of this game could include two commanders instead of one or creating themed rounds. In the first round, the category could be dance moves. In the next, all numbers could relate to occupation, animal sounds, etc.
Make the game your own and have fun!
