Using dice as a way to decide the fate of an activity or game never gets dull. In fact, rolling the dice is a simple way for kids and adults can feel as though they’re part of a game without the worry of having too much pressure at the same time.
Because let’s be honest. Sometimes, it’s really hard to decide what candy to choose or what gift to pick. Those decisions can make anyone feel like they’re frozen without an option, and this is where the dice come into play! (literally!)
Forget popular games or board games like Yahtzee, Farkle, and Bunco. The next time that there is a fun holiday or event coming up where there will be choices to be made, make a few dice cookies, and don’t forget to include these dice game printables and a set of dice. The printables will give the answers to the rolls of the dice, making it a great option for everyone to participate in.
Dice Game Rules
Candy dice game rules are simple and easy to follow. In fact, the dice game candy rules are printed and ready to use. Each person gets to take a turn rolling the dice, and whatever number is shown on that dice is matched with the number on the printable.
The only control that the person has is that they get to toss or roll the dice. After that, it’s all in how the dice land! In the gift exchanges, if you roll snake eyes with the dice, then you have to do what the dice game tells you to do for rolling that number. No ifs, and, or butts!
For each dice roll it might mean that you get candy, it could mean that you give candy, or it could mean that you are skipped and have to watch everyone else having and enjoying some of their candy. It’s all in the fun of the game! (and all are in good spirits as well because every roll will have everyone guessing and waiting as to what is going to happen)

How do I play dice games?
Each of the candy dice game PDFs includes instructions. However, the concept is easy in this simple game. Add a bunch of candy (or candy bars) to the center of the table. Roll the dice. Look at your number. Follow the instructions.
Sample instructions include…
- Take one candy
- Put one candy back
- Give any player one candy
- Skip your turn
- Take one candy from any player
- Everyone takes one candy
Players will pull from the pile of candy (or each other) until they get the specific number of candies they need to win.
Can I play dice games without dice?
You might be wondering if can you play these dice games without dice (or a dice cup.) Dice games require some type of numeric roll with a six-sided dice however if you do not have dice, there are ways around this.
What is the order of the game?
On the dice game, the rules are listed. However, you can make it your own. You can decide the order of players in this group game. When playing with younger kids, the first player is usually the youngest. The next player is to their left (in clockwise order) or the next youngest player. Players take turns rolling the die. The object of the game is to collect candy or candy bars. The winner of the game gets the present or the most candy.
How many players are needed for these dice games?
The number of players really doesn’t matter but anything in between 3 to 5 players will work best. If you have more than 5 players, split up players into groups and each group will play their own game. If you play with fewer than 3 players, stealing things like candy from your “play of choice” will be really silly – you keep stealing and exchanging with the same person. It will make the end of the game come really quickly. In this case, just add a number of rounds to keep the game going.
Do I need to keep score in this game?
No piece of paper is needed to track the highest score other than the printable dice games. There is no total score in these popular dice game printables. The winner will either unwrap the present or get ten pieces of candy first. You can create variations and add up the highest total and award prizes for the most points. Make it your own game and grab a piece of paper as a score sheet if this is the die score is the direction you go. It definitely adds math into the equation (no pun intended) if you are playing math games in the classroom.
