Lost in Random — Quick tips to get you rolling

Lost In Random Tips

Note: The game refers to Dicey as Even’s “dice.” Yes, we know it’s “die.”

Lost in Random is finally available for players to get, er, lost in and we’ve got some tips for new players.

To that end, this guide is aiming to get new dice-wielders rolling sixes with the best of them.


Roll when your hand is full

You can roll Dicey whenever you have enough energy to draw even a single card. If the first card you end up rolling is one you need, you might be able to get away with it, but it’s usually better to wait until your hand is full before you roll. That goes double for if you have any cards that give you free extra numbers. This will become less necessary as Dicey becomes capable of rolling higher and higher numbers, however.

Weapon cards are the best

Sure, you can use the hazard and cheat cards to get the better of enemies, but in terms of usefulness, they simply can’t compare to weapons. The mace, spear, and explosive bow are going to always be your best bet for DPS. Almost none of the hazard or damage cards you use will be able to hurt an enemy as much as even one weapon card will. It’s also a good idea to stack weapon cards, as you can play a second identical card while still having the first active to make them even more damaging. This makes the mace an absolute massive threat to enemies that can demolish them in no time.

You’ll have enough for every card with sidequests

Don’t be afraid to spend that currency. As long as you’re doing sidequests in Lost in Random, you’ll be flush with cash all the time. If there’s a card you want, go ahead and get it. By the end of the game, you’ll be able to afford every last card and then some. By then, though, there’s nothing else to buy. My point is that you shouldn’t ever feel the need to be careful with your cash, as there’s just not any reason to be. I will say that you should pick the weapon booster pack over the others when it pops up at Mannie’s store, though.


The spear enemies are easily the most obnoxious ones. You can’t hit them as easily as the others and they attack quickly. However, they’re only capable of attacking in a straight line. You don’t even have to dodge when dealing with them. When they’re charging up, simply walk to the side and they simple won’t be able to hit you. They’re only vulnerable for a brief window and you don’t want to try getting into a tit-for-tat with them, so just dodge and strike as battle flow allows.

Look to the map for sidequests

Sidequests and how to progress in them are always featured on Lost in Random‘s map. If you don’t want to miss any, just keep your eyes peeled for any question marks that show up on the map and you won’t have to worry about letting any of them pass you by. In the fifth town, it’s worth mentioning that you often won’t be able to backtrack, so you’ll especially want to pay attention to the map during this section of the game, as the sidequests here are easy to miss.

That’s all for our Lost in Random tips. Just remember: when in doubt, hit it with a mace. That’s enough to solve most any problem.
