I wanted to play a multiplication bingo type game with a class the other day, so I grabbed two 10 sided dice (apparently you don’t need to call a single dice a “die” anymore) out of the cupboard. Then I thought… hey I have a projector and a laptop.
I knew ActivStudio had a dice roller built-in, so I pulled that up. Nice simple interface, you can roll up to 5 dice – but only 6-sided dice.
I went looking through my delicious bookmarks… nothing. So, we just used the normal dice.
Later I went looking for a dice roller online. There are a couple of options I found:
Still not what I wanted. ∴ make your own.
This Excel file has a setup page where you specify:
The next sheet has just a single dice (where many of the options above are irrelevant) and the next sheet the two dice.
I made this in Excel, because you can use Excel fullscreen with an IWB / Projector and it’s easy to modify.
Have you found a resource on the web for rolling two 10 sided dice? Do you have any suggestions for modifying this Excel file?
