Now with support for 5e and Non-d20 systems!
A dice roller app for tabletop roleplaying games that keeps the fun of tossing physical dice without all that pesky math and adds a few tricks of its own.
Toss 3d physics based dice that leave trails of fire, steam, and more.
Combine all of the dice needed, numerical bonuses, sounds and other information into a single combo die that makes appropriate sound effects. That then explodes into multiple dice when thrown.
Create Combo Dice that combine Attack Dice, Damage Dice, Bonuses, Defense to attack and then add an Icon and a sound effect!
Tons of unique 3d dice with particle effects, animations and more to personalize to your character.
Does all the math for you, including bonus and critical hit math.*
Saves Combo Dice and Dice Selections in a "Character List" to easily switch setups.
Create Combo Dice easily. No formulas or math. Just toss out the dice you need, add the bonus and options and hit save.
Acts as a soundboard for your characters attacks automatically when you attack, without you needing to open another app or take the time to select a sound.
Can roll a TON of dice at once.
*critical hit math is only in 4e currently.
Made it more clear how the game systems worked. Changed how the 5e game system handled advantage (the 2nd d20 that people were having issues with)
Added some really cool new dice
Ratings and Reviews
Best mobile dice roller to date, and free to boot!
This is the best RPG dice roller I have been able to find. With life-like simulation of dice and classic D&D visuals combined with aesthetically pleasing dice effects, it maintains a level of invaluable usefulness and flexibility without sacrificing looks. I’ve used this app for maybe two years now and it has not run ads and its lone developer has done a great job keeping it up to date. Any dice gamer should have this and I encourage anyone who makes use of it to support the developer by purchasing a dice set for a dollar.
I cannot stress enough how impressive this app is, allowing you to do anything you could with physical dice and in a perfect natural feeling platform. Other dice apps will randomize numbers, maybe cycle through a couple frames, this is the only one I’ve found where you can really roll the dice.
In addition, in my experience of a couple thousand rolls it seems to lean toward the positive side ;) which I’m not complaining about neither as a DM nor a player.*
*Though it’s probably just my lucky dice :D
Very good for D&D.
This die roller is very customizable. Save multiple presets with your attack and damage bonuses calculated in. Toggle advantage on and off, auto reroll if a number is below a certain set threshold, whats not to like? Add ons are an extra fee, but are not really necessary and are very inexpensive if you do decide to get them. The dice available for purchase look great as many have animated effects that you would never be able to replicate with their real life counterparts. Recent upgrades fixed a few bugs, so this thing is working pretty rock solid now. If there was a single flaw, it is that it seems to cater mostly to D&D, Pathfinder and other D20 systems for the time being. Perhaps with future updates they might expand their options to enhance some other popular RPG systems that utilize dice pools with a target difficulty (White Wolf, Shadowrun, etc). Looking forward to more updates and features in the future.
Thanks for the review and I'm glad you're digging my app! Feel free to the feedback button and tell me what other game systems could be of value to you; I've likely not played them, so I'll ask a few questions, but hopefully we can get it figured out!
Plan on paying!
Every dice set costs money, and you can’t just roll what you want, you have to step through a stupid wizard to make a character. JUST LET ME ROLL 3D4!
Response to dev response:
Thanks for your response! I think the disconnect here is I needed to roll some dice real quick, and didn’t need a full fledged app that I was invested in. Suggestions based on your feedback
Dice: don’t give me a dice selection screen first. just give me dice, and then make an option to select colors, and clearly mark which are free and which are paid.
Depth - skip the tutorial, it’s a one way street to “this is specifically how I want you to use my app”. That’s not what most people want (I think). I agree it’s awesome, and valuable, and if I needed that it would be a boon. Make it available, maybe a front screen that says “build dice combos for character generation” or “just get rolling!”
The app has a lot going for it, but specifically getting to rolling for 1 stat real quick wasn’t easy or intuitive. Love the style, the dice sets, the animations, etc.
Hello! Thanks for the review, sorry to hear that my app isn't what you need. I just wanted to clarify somethings that might help you, if you decided to give it a second chance.
1. Not all dice sets cost money, there are multiple free sets in the "Solid Color" category. The optional paid dice skins and animations are how I pay the yearly iTunes fee to host the app and justify the time to my family that I spend on it.
2. The power of Dice and Dragons is creating premade dice sets that combine attack dice, damage dice and all modifiers together in character sets. So that you can quickly select a character and have all their attacks up and ready for you to play without needed to do any math. If you don't WANT to use any of that, then you can disable the tutorial in the options (the first tutorial box mentions that), make a single character and just roll dice.
If you have any other questions or complaints feel free to hit the feedback button in the main menu. That sends me a direct email and I'll try to help more!
Update to the update :)
Thanks for the feedback and for updating the review anything that can help people find what works best for them is a good thing!
Yup, could totally see how it didn't meet your need for a quick die roll! I actually had a "Quick Die Roll" button in the main menu back a few versions ago, and I ended up getting a bunch of feedback like, "All this app does it roll dice, nothing is explained! All these buttons are confusing!" Despite also having the full tutorial option as well... Ha! So I ended up removing that button and people have been way happier since. Though, for your case, I can 100% see why it would have been better for you. Have a great day!
