Summary:Thoughts: All i can say for now is that the story is really appealing, the art is original and charming, it kinda makes you fall in love with the comic . The story is pretty interesting as well, something very original that I've never heard about yet very complex at at the same time and the characters development (especially for the protagonist) seems to be well executed.Quote:
The grading on naver is good enough as well so i doubt it would get cancelled as of right now.
What i think after reading the 5 chapters, you'd better read this after you've caught up with the chapters:
If you're looking for something good and interesting to read then this is for you! I've got no doubt that if the story continues going in a good way, it could become in the future as popular as Tower of god, Noblesse and The Breaker.
I hope you're going to start this out of boredom, interest etc... Because i think many will enjoy this story!

Really cool. Thanks for sharing, I saw this on naver before with no idea what it was. This could get really popular like you said!
I also saw it on naver at first but felt sad that it wasn't translated anywhere. Fortunately, 2 teams started it and we're having chapters on a weekly basis which is pretty cool!
I forgot to remind you guys that chapter 6 came out 3 days ago : http://www.batoto.net/read/_/180024/..._by_soul-scans
The story is slowly starting to advance. Who wouldn't dream to change his intellect/strength/height or stuff like that just by playing a game. It seems like his life is slowly starting to change for the better since he's not getting bullied anymore. I do wonder if more dice users are going to appear.
Yea its interesting with the whole level up system. They could make dicers fight, or quests become really hard. Its an interesting idea to consider. Ill definitely keep following this, hopefully it will break the classic cliche of manhwa that it takes forever for the plot to really pick up. Almost dropped ToG and Noblesse when they both were still in the first few chapters because it was so slow.
is this a mind game genre? i mean is it the battle of wits ? is the protagonist like akiyama and Kira ?
Haha its hard to explain the genre without completely spoiling it. Id say read the 7 chapters that are out. Its also really hard to call this any particular genre truthfully at this point as well
What did you think about it?

I was waiting for more chapters to be released before commenting.
We're up 9 chapters.
Chapter 10 should be out today!
I also edited the first post with a quick summary.
Chapter #10 is out on batoto btw.
It was pure coincidence that I picked up this manhwa. I just saw the word "DICE" written in capital letters on mangapanda and first thing what came in my mind was "what the fuck has DICE (video game developer known for Battlefield, lol) to do with japanese/korean comics?". So I immediately read it and facepalmed myself right after, thinking "dude... you are such a retard... it's Dice, not DICE".
Thought it would be funny to share my awesomeness here.
This manhwa seems to be interesting. I have to read all chapters again, because I read the first 10 chapters pretty fast.
Let my throw a theory here:
I'm glad someone else picked it up!
Btw, that's a funny way to start a manga. Seems like someone is really a gamer
ok so i gave it a try ... i have to say the art is really nice especially striking in the first chapter... great gloss and hue effects .
Now, the idea is pretty legit , it s interesting concept, the plot is well connected, and it has a great potential but i m wondering how things will evolve ,
as of now most of the story is evolving around the same classroom... i wonder if it will stilll be like this for a long time or is it gonna expand with other dicers , expand the world , expand the rules and the consequences ... in fact i m not sure how dicers will compete with each other ( more than just by the number of quest and dices rolled) or if they even will? also i m confused , if u max one ability , is it then maxed out ? wouldnt be pretty quick to max out all abilities ? or can u just keep adding to like intellect forever ? also as of now the little errands and quest that are there , were kind of lame so i wonder if it will only be stuff like that all the time... anyway , will see

Ah good thing to consider if its possible to max a stat. But im assuming the answer is no its not possible. If you want to consider numbers, the human body can usually always improve, with weights lifted or IQ increased. But it also maybe something like an experience bar, where you level up fast early and slow later. I am still wondering myself the point of DICE-ers, and what the main plot will be.
PS I found another good comic that started recently you guys should check it out; 'Aletheia'
Ah what a good chapter. Right when were asking the question he brings up potential answers. You can focus the gains in specific parts and potentially super human abilities too. And it appears you can break human limits but each dice has diminishing returns so to speak as I took it.
Exactly, Byungchul meant that we might possibly max our stats to the point that we can get superhuman abilities just by focusing on one ability but yeah the return is pretty bad, your body is going to get unbalanced and might not just take it, some people might just turn crazy or stuff like that (I suppose).
See what happened with his right hand, already. I'm really interested to learn more about that part.
Damn, Dice keeps getting more amazing!
Just started it (ya took me long enough for some reason ) and finished up to chap 12 i think thats the latest in mangareader.. its really intersting kind a like Liar game - the mind game stuffs with hefty prizes...
ne way what is the frequency of scannalations ?
