Helping you find some alternatives to dice games and mechanics!

I made this list to help you find tabletop RPGs that have different types of mechanics that do not involve dice! There’s games that are based on card decks or coin flips and some that are entirely based on storytelling! I hope this list helps you find some cool new mechanics to try out or give you inspiration for shaking things up with your next game!

I did my best to sort through the games here so you can have an easier time reviewing and picking some options that will work for your particular players without having to search around. I also know that everyone is different, so please review any games for yourself and your particular players before jumping in. 

Suggestions for adding to this list of diceless tabletop RPGs

If you have a recommendation for a game to add, please let me know through the TTRPGkids contact form so I can consider adding it to this list or my big game list!  I’ll be adding to this list as I come across more games, so stay tuned! For recommendations, I’m looking for tabletop RPGs and journaling RPG games with mechanics that are not based on dice and that are geared at kids or are intended for all-ages as they are currently published.
