Roll for initiative

Dicey Dungeons, the stylish dice-based roguelite all about fantasy warrior dice, is coming to Xbox this week. The dungeon crawler lands on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S this Thursday, Nov. 11, and it will also be arriving as part of Xbox Game Pass.

Creator Terry Cavanagh revealed the news on social media, confirming that the Xbox port was made in partnership with Ratalaika Games.

Dicey Dungeons has been steadily rolling out to a bunch of different platforms over the last few years. Though it launched back in 2019, it got a strong reception at the time and has popped up on social media again and again as more have discovered it.

And for good reason too, because dang, Dicey Dungeons is fun. The best way I could describe it is Yahtzee meets turn-based RPG, where randomly rolled die end up determining what equipment you can use, when, and how. It makes very clever use of tabletop mechanics in a way I’ve really dug, every time I’ve gone back to play it. And with Game Pass maybe some more folks will check out the Dicey Dungeons now, too.

If you’ve missed the train on this one, you’ll get the chance to check out Dicey Dungeons on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or Xbox Game pass on Nov. 11, 2021.
