Do0dle Dice was a game I just so happened upon while browsing in a bookstore that has some specialty sections. It’s great!
The game and gameplay
The concept of the game is oh so simple; to roll dice (three rolls) that have various symbols/pictures on them, putting them together to form a picture that is on one of the game cards face up on the table.
Game cards come in six different colors where the pictures on the card require a different number of dice to complete the picture. For example, Orange cards only require one dice to make the picture, Red cards require two die, Yellow three die, etc.
The first player to get one card (complete a picture) of each color wins the game.
I saw the game in the store and thought it looked different. Dice games are usually a lot of fun and I thought it would be something everyone in the family of six, ranging in ages from 5 to 46 years old, could play and have fun playing together!
Boy was I right. The opportunity to play Doodle Dice presented itself two days after buying it. My five year old daughter and I started playing at the kitchen table. Before long, one son heard the roll of the dice on the table, the laughs, and the cheering and simply had to come check it out.
We rolled him in on the next turn, even though we were close to finishing the first game. Then after about five passing minutes as we were finishing the game, the other son came up to see what was causing such a loud, fun, and crazy time. Instantly, he wanted to play too.

Pros and cons
Doodle Dice was a blast. Everyone that was home at that time came together and were actually helping the other family member’s contemplate which cards they could match with the roll of their dice (or die).
It was a competition, yet it was also helping the other people that made it so fun.
I personally recommend the game of Do0dle Dice, unless you’re allergic to having fun! Our four family members who played it the first time give it eight thumbs up.
