Roll and Write

These are (usually) small and portable games that involve players rolling dice and marking the results on sheets of paper or erasable boards.

They sometimes include a solitaire variant out-of-the-box.

The archetype of these is Yahtzee, but all kinds of games have appeared since, with all kinds of twists.

Unlike Yahtzee, most modern incarnations include player interaction. Sometimes in the form of dice selection, and sometimes in being the first to complete a certain goal, locking other players out.
