Zocchi Dice AS SPREADSHEET

Oh, Google Docs, is there nothing you cannot do?

To me, the real "trouble" with the new Zocchi dice are the d7, d14 and d16.  These dice, if you try to use something like a d8 or d20, can cause you to re-roll results over their max.

That's bad.

All the other "weird" dice like d3, d5, d16, d24 can be easily simulated by rolling and halving or rolling with a "control die."

So, here's a spreadsheet that I threw together.  It's got a bunch of RANDBETWEENS in it.  Just print it off  anew each session (refresh the calculations) and use the numbers in order as the rolls are called for.  Easy enough for a game.

I had a half-premonition this was coming from you, Jim. I thought this afternoon it would be a redux of the Judges Guild chart for d7, d14, etc., but this definitely cuts to the chase. Good job!

I would also suggest the hamete dice server at http://dicelog.com/dice. You can throw in 1d whatever, and it will generate a number.
