    I’m currently early stage ideating on a Tetris roll & write game, and since I’m a web developer, I’ve quickly coded up a prototype dice roller which you can see here: https://codepen.io/stowball/full/OJpEXPK

    It allows you to pick the number of players and then randomly selects 2xPlayers + 1 dice from the 9 available for you to roll.

    The early rules are that the player can re-roll any duplicates, so this allows you to re-roll selected dice, and then players Snake draft the dice, which can be achieved here by dragging and re-ordering the dice above the relevant player numbers.

    Combine that with my tablet to actually draw the “write” part, and I should be able to prototype easily with no waste!

    It’s of course free to “fork” if you wanted to create your own based off it, or if you’d like help creating something similar for a game of yours, I may be able to squeeze it in.

    That’s cool. For prototyping Roll and Writes, it may be useful to use a digital whiteboard. Here is an example from a game I made: https://jamboard.google.com/d/1O2Ecv9MrtA2PwSLVcPNDGDjdTWrctc2pJa7I29alZIA/edit?usp=sharing

      Interesting. I’m currently using Infinite Painter on my Chromebook tablet because I can draw “properly” with my stylus
