Custom D&D / dice game calculator using Adafruit FEATHER m0 express and Rust, Caleb writes –

I printed, built, and programmed a calculator for D&D and other dice based games. It rolls simple dice like ‘d20’, ‘d100’, or ‘d42’ or sets of dice like ‘4d20 + d4 + 4’

This first version of the firmware is basic, but I plan to add a ‘stats’ function to print the odds of rolling the number you rolled, a ‘test’ function to ‘prove’ that it is a fair die, and a ‘gamblers falicy mode’. Gamblers falicy mode would increase the odds of rolling a dice face that hasn’t been rolled recently, making a series of dice outcome better fit an expected distribution. This mode might take some RNG out of games like catan or machi koro.
