The best games where you can draft dice 🎲 2021

Looking for a really good game where you can choose dice 🎲? Then we have just the thing for you: the list of the best dice drafting games 2021.

What are Dice Drafting games?

Dice drafting games are games where players can select dice from a limited subset, such as a common pool. The goal is to gain an advantage (immediate or long term) or to assemble dice to achieve certain goals within the game. That's Pretty Clever is a well-known dice selection game.

"Dice Drafting" is sometimes called "choosing dice".

Differentiation from normal, simple select games

Games where cards or dice are simply drawn randomly from a deck are not dice drafting. Drafting/Select implies that players have some choice and the ability to draw a die that another player might want. This allows the other players to miss out on something they may have wanted. For example, in That's Pretty Clever, players may choose to draw dice from the open display.
