Are there any dice games that you can play with a standard role-playing 7-die set (d4, d6, d8, d10, d%, d12, d20)?

Maybe you have some time to kill before your tabletop session starts, or during a break. It'd be nice to have a game that doesn't require anything beyond this set of dice. I'm open to games that can be played alone or with friends.

This is an offshoot from another question: Is there a name for the standard 7-die set? I recently received a very nice set of dice as an anniversary gift. I'm not currently in a tabletop session, but I would like to play with the dice.

Are you looking for something where the entirety of the game only requires one 7-dice set, or would one-set-per-player be acceptable? – Paul Marshall Jun 8 '14 at 0:37
@PaulMarshall Either option is acceptable. – redlamp Jun 8 '14 at 1:01
sigh Why even bother with a game-recommendation tag then? It's not a subjective opinion question, and it doesn't seem like there's a plethora of answers to it. I haven't used a "community wiki" answer before, but would that help make this more relevant to SE? – redlamp Jun 13 '14 at 1:06

With 2-3 sets, you could play Button Men, a Cheapass Game about capturing dice. Lots of entirely free characters available.

I love Button Men and recommend it as an RPG game day filler during a store run or the like. – neontapir Jun 11 '14 at 6:04

How about ? I've never tried it but you only need to print out 1 page of paper to give it a shot :)
