Dice Mountain is a game my daughter and I invented (I’m sure many other have “invented” the same game) after I bought her a set of dice at one of the cons I was exhibiting at and she asked, “What do you do with them?” to which I responded, “You play games.” Then I realized I didn’t actually know any games she could play with them so we made a few up on the spot. 
The players roll 1 D6 (usually 2 D6 to make each round go a bit faster) in order to “climb” up and down their mountain. Use you another D6 to mark your place on the board. If it’s right before bedtime and we’ve already played a few games, we’ll start rolling 3 D6 each for a speed round. Sometimes once of us will roll three consecutive numbers (like 4, 5 and 6), thus rocketing up or down our mountain at breakneck speeds. She thinks that’s pretty much the coolest thing ever. 
Today I retired our original pencil and paper “game board” and drew up on a new one on cardstock and let her color it. Looks pretty flippin’ sweet if I do say so myself. (SPOILERS: I do.) 
Now go dig out some dice and play some games with your kids.
