I agree to the site policies and guidelines - click here to read them
We keep ALL information collected about you entirely private. These details are not passed on to third-parties, unless requested by government authorities investigating criminal activities (which has never happened).
To provide a FUN and welcoming community where people can relax as they socialise, chat and play together FOR FREE in a family environment!
All users will be required to enter their date-of-birth on registration. Those under 13 years of age will not be able to register with freethedice.com. The reason for this is that it is actually illegal to collect data from under-13s under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.
You are welcome to play and enjoy the community free of charge. We do provide additional services that can be paid for, but we stress that none of these services will lead to a player gaining a gaming or social advantage over anybody else within the community.
Development and maintenance costs have to be paid for and so we have various streams of income that provide this funding. This mostly includes pay-per-click advertising and sale of credits/dice/subscriptions. Anybody who benefits from the free services must understand that we really need the support of our sponsors to maintain these free services and therefore should accept this as part of the gaming experience. However, if you have a problem with the advertisements then you are more than welcome to check out our paid features, which include the removal of in-game advertising from your account. If you would like to support us by purchasing advertising space for your business within the gaming system, then please contact us.
Only one registration is permitted per person. If you are unable to access your account then you should e-mail us using the contact details given below, and not sign up for an additional account. If you do happen to have more than one account, then you should contact us immediately and tell us which account you would like to keep and we will disable the others with immediate effect. Registering under more than one name is a breach of our regulations and may result in all of your accounts being permanently disabled.
As a community, we feel it is important to be seen and to be noticed for who you are. Hopefully, you are very proud to be yourself and therefore we do not allow the change of identity within the community and do not offer an invisibility mode. If you are having problems with bullying or harassment then please contact the admin team and they will happily resolve your issues.
Be civil to everybody - When joining a game, there may be players there that you do not like. That's life. It's a certainty that anybody you don't like are friendly with your other friends anyway, so please try to be civil and to enjoy the game!
Kicking - There is usually a time limit for taking your turns and there are occasions where somebody may be unable to play their turn for various reasons such as disconnections or domestic emergencies. In this instance, we recommend that players use the "kick player" option in order to continue with the game and thus, the entertainment, unless the players have made a prior agreement not to do so. In any circumstances where a player is kicked, there should be no bullying, pressure or complaints about it. It is highly reasonable that if you are unable to play your turn within the allotted time that the game should continue without you. It is very inconsiderate to expect people to wait this length of time for you.
Alternative Rules - Some people have developed their own alternative rules for games. Examples of this are Sequence and Bowling. Where a new custom game type is being played, it is absolutely the responsibility of the player creating the game to be sure that all players involved fully understand the rules before the game begins. If you feel that a player has broken those agreements please contact the admin team. Do not criticise or chastise that player publicly.
New Players - There are many new players who join the site. Everybody here was new once and so please be patient and welcoming and help the new players to understand how the game works. The community can only become better as more people join, play and have fun together!
As a community, everybody is welcome to participate here. If somebody is behaving unacceptably, please report this immediately to the administrative team who will endeavour to solve the issues.
A list of examples of unacceptable behaviour are listed here:
*1 publicly - refers to any common area of the site that can be seen by more than one other player, such as in-game chat, games-hall chat, the forums, creating game names, etc.
If you wish to have a heated debate then please do it in private messages. If you have an issue or a problem with another player then please contact the admin team. Do not conduct inappropriate conversations publicly.
Adult-related conversations - If you wish to have adult-related conversations then keep them in private games or in private chat.
Remember that this is a family environment and anything that should not be done or said directly in front of young children should be kept ENTIRELY private.
Whenver we receive any complaints we take them seriously, so please keep anything inappropriate for children's eyes between yourselves and others that you can be 100% sure are happy with it.
Please let us know if you are affected by or observe people behaving in an inappropriate manner. Your complaint will be confidential and we will investigate the situation fully before taking any action. We do not tolerate such behaviour in our community and take these issues very seriously. Anybody believed to be repeatedly behaving in a way that disturbs the family environment of this community will be subject to removal of social privileges, temporary suspension or permanent removal from the community.
We do not believe in 24 hour CCTV as we vehemently believe that you are entitled to your privacy. However, in order to maintain this policy we need your help to identify any problems that occur within the community. Please, please contact the admin team if you experience any problems within our community and we will do our best to solve your situation. Anybody and every body is welcome to have fun here.
ADMIN LEADER Kal and ADMIN inqov69 are the founding members of FreeTheDice.com.
Kal - originally funded the site for more than one year by himself and he is the driving force behind the community and all current/future developments. Kal is responsible for taking any community-related decisions such as issuing warnings, removing of privileges and in rare circumstances, banning accounts. Kal also plays the occasional game and joins in with games hall chat every now and again.
Inqov -(the hobo) tends to pop-in-and-out every now-and-again to play a game or two. Look out for him and challenge him to a game!
Having Troubles? - If for any reason you need to contact an administrator, please contact the admin team directly instead of writing to Kal or Inqov who may not see your message for a number of days.
The team of administrators work entirely as volunteers who float around the site following the guidelines laid-down by the founders. They are responsible for moderating the chat and forum, approving dice and all social activities within the site. These people give up their free time to help out so please be respectful and polite to them at all times, even if making a complaint. They deserve it.
The admin team use only one account between them, for simplicity's sake and do not partake in any social activities. This is to be sure that there is no bias between any of the players and the admin team. Therefore, everybody is treated equally regardless of their associations and it works very well.
The two founding members do occasionally join in with games and do partake in social activities. However, this does not in any way affect their ability to make decisions as proven by history. Accusations of low levels of integrity or of bias and favourtism will not be tolerated at any level and anybody claiming to receive preferential treatment should be reported to the admin team immediately!
If you have any issues at all then please contact the admin team. They are here to help you and to take care of you!
If ever you are concerned that the admin team have not been helpful or have not behaved satisfactorily, then please contact Kal who will look into the matter.
FreeTheDice.com do not accept responsibility for any outcome caused by the behaviour of players on the site. You are all responsible for your own behaviour and any cases of slander, libel, copyright infringement or otherwise, remain with the players concerned.
We welcome and fully appreciate any comments and suggestions at all. Of course, we cannot always satisfy every request that we receive, but if you any comments or suggestions at all to make about the site then we would love to hear them.
