This game was found in a book called THE OUTRAGEOUS OUTDOOR GAME BOOK by Bob Gregson.
You make six dice out of cardboard cube-shaped boxes, each side marked with a different "game element". Then you divide your group into two teams, they roll the dice and then have about 10-15 minutes to "brainstorm" and "invent" a game using the six "elements" each team rolled for the whole group to play.
The special made "dice" are not necessary, you could accomplish the same by rolling ordinary 6-sided dice 6 times against the table below. But certainly the large "box" dice are more showy and and add fun to the endeavor.
