Roll/Spin and Move

Roll or spin and move games are games where players roll dice or spin spinners and then move their tokens in accordance with what they received on their roll or spin. Many classic games use the roll/spin and move mechanic: Monopoly, The Game of Life and Sorry to name a few.

The term roll/spin and move is often used in a derogatory manner as if to imply that players don’t have to think a lot, but there are games, Backgammon for one, that use this mechanic and still have strategic value.
