The world of board gaming comes with its own crazy lingo. The terminology can be confusing to newcomers and veterans alike—if not entirely ambiguous at times. This will serve as a living, breathing glossary where I will attempt to define board game related lingo and buzzwords.
This living glossary is a collaboration between Paul Shapiro and BoredGameTable. We will continue to add definitions.
There is currently 1 Board Game Term in this directory beginning with the letter D.
Submit a Board Game Term D6-D20
[Game Term] This refers to various types of dice used in a game. "D" is a reference to a single die. The number after the "D" is a reference to the number of sides that the die has. For instance, a D6 is your standard 6-sided die. Sometimes, a number will precede the "D". This is a reference to a quantity of dice. For example, if you must roll 2D6 in a game, then you are rolling two 6-sided dice.Submitted by: Paul Shapiro
