New! Dice Roller is Installed


  • SFO Founder TripleA Admin

    Update to the dice rollers: Feb. 14, 2007

    I’ve created a dice roller that can be used in the forums to play games or do whatever you need. All of the dice results are randomly generated. Some of the dice commands return the results sorted for convenience. The commands provided here get more and more specific towards playing A&A games in the forums.

    Sorted multi-sided dice results
    To roll many sided dice use the following command

    <colon>dice ndm <colon>Replace <colon>with an actual colon “:”
    Replace n with the number of dice to roll.
    Replace m with the number of sides per dice.

    For example, this will roll 10 6-sided dice (be sure to include a colon before and after the command) …
    dice 10d6
    Rolling 10d6:
    (2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6)

    Grouped and sorted multi-sided dice results grouped
    Just like the above but you can roll many groups at once

    <colon>dice ndm xdy <colon>For instance you can do the following (again, be sure to use colons before and after)
    dice 4d12 2d20
    Rolling 4d12 2d20:
    (1, 3, 5, 12)  (11, 12)

    dice 1d4 1d6 1d7 1d12
    Rolling 1d4 1d6 1d7 1d12:
    (4)  (4)  (3)  (1)

    Grouped and sorted 6-sided dice results grouped
    This is like the previous command except that if you do not specify the number of side it will default to 6.

    dice 1
    Rolling 1:
    (5)

    dice 1 1 2 1
    Rolling 1 1 2 1:
    (4)  (6)  (3, 5)  (5)

    Axis & Allies generic dice
    As of Feb. 14, 2007 this is new. This command will roll 6-sided dice in groups. The dice will be displayed in their corresponding groups in the order in which they were generated. Each group has and hits-on rating. This command will display the hits for each group and also calculate the total number of hits. You must have at least one group or you may have multiple

    <colon>aaa i@j n@m x@y <colon>For instance, here is the battle:
    Anglo-Egypt - Attack - 2 inf, 1 inf + 1 rtl, 1 arm, 1 bmb
    aaa 2@1 2@2 1@3 1@4
    Rolls: 2@1 2@2 1@3 1@4; Total Hits: 42@1: (1, 2)2@2: (2, 1)1@3: (5)1@4: (2)

    Anglo-Egypt - Defend - 1 inf, 1 arm, 1 ftr
    aaa 1@2 1@3 1@4
    Rolls: 1@2 1@3 1@4; Total Hits: 21@2: (3)1@3: (2)1@4: (1)</colon></colon></colon></colon></colon></colon></colon>

    Don’t try to edit your message to change the dice rolls or else it will look like this …

    Rolling 2 6-sided dice:
    1, 1



  • Nice addition!

    May I recommend that you post the info on the in-forum dicey as a “stickied” subject in the Games forum?

    Will be nice to have an in-forum dicey for any folks that do not want to sign up with DAAK, etc…

  • Woohoo! How many hits did I get?



  • For anyone curious about the distribution, there were

    151 Ones
    157 Twos
    160 Threes
    186 Fours
    175 Fives
    171 Sixes

    … in the above roll.



  • Sounds like a ratehr even distribution, within normally expected variables.

    Also, I would just like to say that I was able to use the new Dice Roller to determine the pairings for Round 3 of the Tournament.

    Before this, I had my wife roll dice and tell me the roll, and I would match them to the numbers I had assigned to the players.  This time, I was able to do that publicly so that everyone could see the rolls.

    Thank you again for this addition to the site!

  • If you try to edit a post with a dice roll in it, the roll goes away and all you get is the command line.
