A Dicing with Death egy remek társasjáték, 2 - 6 játékos részére. A játékmenet erősen épít a kockáztatás, a hatszög-rács, a kockadobás, a set-03 grid coverage és a ceruza-papír mechanizmusokra.

Dicing with Death is a set of quick play gladiatorial rules, written by experienced wargamer Derek Henderson. Played on an off set square grid (you can use hexes if you prefer) the game has an original combat system that uses both luck, skill and bluff. Players each have a set of 5 dice, and the innovative combat system uses concealed dice rolls as the players attempt to outscore their opponents using holds and re-rolls based on the gladiator’s skill level. The game covers all the known gladiator types who fought each other from the simple secutor with a shield to gladiators with whips and lassos. Record keeping is simple and kept to a minimum. The rules include a straight forward career progression system for both individual gladiators or training schools. Ideal for a quick game in an evening or a prolonged campaign over several meetings. As with all "Wargaming for Grown Ups" rules they include a comprehensive Quick Reference Sheet on the back cover.
Includes full list of gladiator types and details, player records sheets and proforma arena grids.
