Ra: The Dice Game is a simple game themed along the lines of Ra the auction game with Monuments, Pharoahs, Rivers, Civilizations, and Floods. However, the play style is something more like Yahtzee instead. Each player rolls five dice and has up to two rerolls to use to try to improve their result. The game takes place over 3 eras, and the one with the highest score at the end wins the game.

This event will have 4 heats, a quarterfinal, a semifinal, and final. Each table will have 4 players. The advancement to the quarterfinal will be done via a most wins system - the top 64 players who have the greatest number of heat wins advance. The first tiebreaker will be the number of second place finishes in the heats, then number of third place finishes. If there is still a tie, random die roll will decide who advances.

Any ties in the heats themselves will simply allow multiple winners. For example, if the scores are 20, 20, 15, 15, there would be two winners and two third place finishes.

Ties in the quarterfinal, semifinal or final will be resolved by random die roll.
