Risk Dice Simulator

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.
Nice simulator man, quick, simple and free. I couldn't find better!
not worth using
App works, but is ugly and there's no option to roll just a single round of combat at a time, or even "keep attacking as long as I still have X number of armies left". Use the Brisk Roll app instead!
