Roll for initiative: Google Search simulates more types of dice for your tabletop RPG enjoyment

Ugh, not only did you show up late to the weekly D&D session, you forgot your snazzy dice at home, and now you've got to use the cheap house set — which we all know throws 1s way more often. When was the last time those off-weight bits of plastic confirmed or even landed a crit? Well, if your DM allows it, you might be able to use Google next time.

[New Game] Kongregate Brings Tiny Dice Dungeon To Android, A Dice-Based RPG For The Pixel Lovers Out There

Kongregate has brought Tiny Dice Dungeon to Android, supplying us mobile gamers with another RPG filled with quests, battles, and loot. This particular game is set apart by its innovative turn-based combat system, which requires players to roll die to attack. The numbers rolled determine how much damage gets dealt.

Dice+ Review: A Bluetooth-Enabled Die That Will Make Your Android Tablet The Star Of Family Game Night

As a millennial raised on video games, I've developed more of an interest in physical board games the older I get.

DICE+ Is A 6-Sided Die That Talks To Your Gadgets Via Bluetooth, Pre-Orders Available Now

Nerds love dice. They're a fundamental part of any good Dungeons & Dragons session, along with any number of quirky board and card games that have spawned over the years. Yet the harder we game, the harder it is for dice to keep up. We've bumped them up to eight sides and twelve sides, then, in a moment of panic, dropped down to four. But they still aren't quite up to the task. That is why it's exciting to see an innovation like DICE+, a die that can connect to smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. The functionality here is so impressive that we will ignore that it only has six sides.
