So I bought Formula D a couple of weeks ago, and we're loving it already. We're taking it to a big family gathering in a few weeks, and I realized a couple of extra sets of dice would be handy; any sane person would have just ordered a couple of sets for about $20.00 and went their merry way.

I, on the other hand, realized that between us we had at least four Android phones in the family. So rather than spend twenty bucks, I spent about 15 hours learning enough about Android development to put together a simple dice roller :-)




It's not available in the Market, but if anyone is interested in a copy I'd be happy to send it out to you for free. Drop me a geekmail and I'll send you the .apk file. I've uploaded the file to the Files section; you can get it here: Andy De Dice App for Android

Beat me to it! :) I'd love to take a look.

Did you remember to do the 2nd and 3rd gear "correctly", with regards to the distribution of numbers not being equal? :)

Yes, I did build the Dice to match the real distribution of values on the actual dice. {2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4} for Second, {4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8} for Third.

For anyone interested in a copy, please include your e-mail address in your Geekmail - I'm not yet posting the file to a website so need your address to send the file. Thanks!

Chris

Nobody said there was any difference between the "old" and "new" sets of dice. But there is a difference between the distribution of the numbers on the 2nd and 3rd gear die compared to the rest (all the others have an even distribution of each number).
