This app simulates the dice rolling in a game of Risk. Often, especially towards the end of games, you have more than 100 armies involved in a battle. Rolling the dice 100+ times, and then having to calculate the results each time is tiresome and error prone. This app simulates this process, making it faster, easier and more accurate.
First, you enter the number of armies attacking and defending. Then, hit go. As the app runs, it shows you each roll of the dice, and the results. You can speed it up or slow it down as it runs. At any point, you can choose to stop the attack, and then restart it from the same point.
The dice are rolled using the arc4random() function from the c library: stdlib.h. This is an industry accepted random number generated, and is almost certainly more random than the dice that came with your game.
This app is not affiliated with any company who makes Risk games, or any board games. It does not give any features that allow you to play the game of Risk, it is only a supplement to make your Risk games more fun.
Ratings and Reviews
It does what it needs to do, nothing more, nothing less. 5 stars because it has saved me and my friends a lot of time. It's a must have when you've got a fight between two groups of 20+ and don't want to spend the rest of the day rolling dice.
Great, but needs a little tweaking.
Excellent app for this game, does what it says. Only drawback is that you can't stop rolling the dice until someone completely loses; this takes away from the players control as he plays the game. Change that aspect of it and it is perfect!
Does what it says!
Nice auto-roller! The ability to have it auto-roll at different speeds is very nice! It allows you to to either calculate a winner quickly, or proceed more slowly so that you may root as the battle proceeds!
