Steady Roller, for Board Games

Steady Roller, for Board Games


Ever played a game like Settlers of Catan and wondered why your 6s never came up? Or why there were no 9s for half the game? Well, SteadyRoller can fix that for you. SteadyRoller is a dice rolling simulator with the optional ability to adjust rolls so that they are more likely to have a normal distribution for even a small number of rolls. Of course, you can turn that off and use it as a standard dice roller instead.

Shake it or swipe to roll. You can turn sound on and off from the menu, and adjust shake sensitivity from the Settings screen.

This version requires some permissions for the ad widget. The roller itself doesn't use the network or examine the phone state.

Note: This app really doesn't look good on tablets. We're working on it.

Recent changes:
1.04
- Fixed bug where it wouldn't immediately use a new roller when you switch rollers (e.g. board game -> standard) from the settings screen.
- Added saving of roll history between sessions. So, if you quit SteadyRoller (accidentally, or on purpose) it should resume where it left off, statistically speaking.

Catan is a new game! While I recognize the fun of luck in dice rolls, using this app along with Better Settlers makes a way more strategy-based experience for playing Catan using the Board Game Roller. Excellent distributions after 50 rolls.

Very good, but not quite perfect I didn't think it would prove so difficult to find a simple 6-sided, 2-die app with roll history...and without N-side dice, X numbers of dice, all the other features I don't find useful (and which are usually accompanied by a cruddy UI). Fortunately, I finally found Steady Roller! My previous favorite was Hyperia's Dice, but it doesn't track roll history. The only improvements I'd make to Steady Roller: <1> provide the option to display large, simple, strictly 2D dice - without the numeric readout -- a la Hyperia's Dice. <2> provide the option to roll the dice with a screen tap, rather than a swipe. All in all, very good!
