You actually don’t need to put in a game number. There is a link at the top of Dicey that is for Non-AAMC members, so you just click that and just leave the game number blank. If you do that you won’t have a log of all the dice rolls for the game but they still get emailed to you. I’ve played a number of PBEM games and never check the log. I’m satisfied with just getting the email. And will usually save them till the game is over then delete them.
Once you use it once you’ll get the hang of it, it really isn’t that bad.
But it would be cool if you worked on your own, I wrote one in C#, but it doesn’t do emailing yet, as a matter of fact I really haven’t worked on it in a while. It’s more of a hobby for me though. Took a few computer classes in college a few years ago (late 90’s), but mostly dead languages, COBOL, Assembler, did take a little Unix and C though. I’ve been slowly getting back into it which is why I’ve been messing with C#.
I’m not sure if they are still looking for A&A tools for this site or if they are working on their own but if you did make your own dicey web app maybe they’d consider linking to it from here.
Oh yeah, I forgot this, sometimes I still set up the board too. There’s nothing like rolling the actual tank pieces across the board or the mighty Japanese navy in the Pacific. The battleship pieces are just so cool!
