Dragon Dice is a video game based on the collectible dice game Dragon Dice by TSR.

Gameplay[edit]

Dragon Dice is a fantasy strategy game where the player controls either the heroes or the villains to battle foes and conquer their territories.

Publication history[edit]

The Dragon Dice computer game was published in 1997 by Interplay.

Reception[edit]

GameSpy said that "Interplay's Dragon Dice was an absolutely faithful translation" of the tabletop game, "meaning that players enjoyed the thrilling experience of watching video representations of dice roll around on a screen. At least when you play craps on the Internet, there's a chance of winning real money. The only reason to even own Dragon Dice was to get the exclusive collectable die that came bundled in the package – which isn't even a reason today as there are very few Dragon Dice players around."[1]

Next Generation reviewed the PC version of the game, rating it one star out of five, and stated that "Fans of the tabletop version of Dragon Dice would be better off finding a friend and using their money to purchase additional sets of real dice. It's a lot more fun than playing on the computer, and there's never a worry about the game crashing."[2]

Russian games magazine Game.EXE gave the game a score of 70%.[3]
