The Story of Doozy Dice


It was 2020 in the 425

Covid in the air

Man, it was everywhere

People stuck at home

Doing stuff alone

Too many screens

You know what I mean


So I sat myself down

And we took a look around

Nothing new and cool to be found

It was time to break new ground!


Now, Doozy is just a name

That late one night came

That got stuck inside my brain

So we put it in a game


Not looking for fame

It's just a great game night game!

Not to play it

Well, that would be a shame

Stay Doozy I exclaim!!


Many people ask us about how we came up with the idea for Doozy Dice. These are the words that my dad wrote to describe the journey of the creation of Doozy Dice. To truly understand it, however, we must return to where—and when—it all began.


Most people had high hopes for 2020, claiming that it would be their year, kicking off the new decade with a bang, and then the entire world ground to a halt. Like other families, we were trapped in our house, glued to our phone screens as a distraction from boredom and fear. As the gap between us and the outside world grew, so did the separation from each other as we spent more and more time cooped up in our rooms. Yet even a pandemic could not eliminate one tradition: game night. Every night after dinner, we gathered around the game cabinet, carefully choosing from a storied cast of diverse games. The beauty of these games was that they were familiar, a beacon of normalcy in a world that seemed to be tearing apart at the seams, but it didn’t take long to realize that there was an empty place in the game cabinet—a Doozy-shaped place.


After a “rousing” round of Yahtzee, an idea started to form in my dad’s mind, and we haven’t looked back ever since. After that epiphany, the rules gradually began falling into place, undergoing trial and revision over and over again to provide the amazing experience we know and love today. The one thing that didn’t change, however, was the simplest desire in the world: to have fun. What started as a distraction from the bleakness and negativity of the world snowballed into an entire mode of living, one in which having fun with loved ones is just as important as working hard to support yourself. From this philosophy, our motto “Stay Doozy” sprang to life, constantly encouraging us to create lighthearted, enjoyable moments with loved ones. Just like Mr. Doozy, with his silly face and his jaunty green hat askew, we believe that going through our days with a healthy dose of humor and an abundance of joy is the surefire formula for happiness.
