Gipfelsturmer is a game from Friedemann Friese. Players roll dice combinations to push their wooden capricorns (ok, they're really goats) up different paths to the top of the mountain.
Roman Poker is a dice game from noted game historian and designer David Parlett. Players roll roman numeral dice to fill out a score sheet. The twist is your rolls must always form a valid roman numeral or you bust.
