Private rooms allow you to roll dice with your friends (or foes, we don't judge.)
Creating a room
To create your first private room, navigate to dddice.com and click "Roll Dice" on the main page. You will be redirected to your own private room.
dddice alpha: Private rooms are semi-permanent. When you tap "Roll Dice", a private room will be generated for your browser session. Each time you tap "Roll Dice", we will attempt to locate your previously created room in order to make sharing easier. If you wish to create more than one room, or make your room permanent, you will need to register for an account.
Update room name
The room name is displayed at the top-center of the interface. The room name can be changed by the room owner (i.e. the user who created the room) by tapping on the room name.
Tap the room name to begin typing and tap off the room name to save. New and existing connected users will see the change immediately.
Update your user
To the left of the room name are circles of the currently connected users. Hover over any user circle to see the username. The left most circle always represents you. If you tap on it, you will be shown a popup to let you edit your name and user color. New and existing connected users will see your updated information immediately.
Share a room
At the very end of the connected users circles, tap the plus (+) icon to open the "Invite your friends" screen.
Share the URL or have nearby players scan the QR code to join your private room.
Press ESC or use the "X" in the top-right corner to close this screen.
dddice allows you to roll any number of standard tabletop RPG dice including d20s, d12s, d10s, d8s, d6s, and d4s.
Tap the dice at the bottom of the screen to add to your current roll. Click a die multiple times to continuing adding. For example, click "d20" a couple of times to roll "2d20". Your current roll is displayed in the center of the screen.
When you are ready to roll, click the "ROLL!" or "Hidden Roll" buttons at the bottom of the screen.
There is a limit of 25 dice on the screen at any time. We might make this customizable in the future.
Removing dice from the roll
If you added a die to your roll, but want to remove it, click on the part of the dice equation and it will remove one of those dice. For example if you had selected 6d6 to roll, click on the "6d6" in the middle of the screen to turn it into 5d6!
Sometimes you want to make a roll that only the GM or a few other players can see. After you have selected the dice you want to roll, but before you press the "ROLL!" button, you can select which users you want to wisper the roll too. Click on the user circles directly above the roll buttons, they will light up to indicate which users will see this roll If no users are selected it will be a normal roll that everyone can see
Customize dice piles
Use the "Organize My Dice" button, located to the left of the "Hidden Roll" button to browse and organize your dice. You can add up to four (4) dice per pile.
To add a die to your dice pile, simply drag a die from the browser above to an empty slot in your piles below.
To remove a die from your dice pile, simply drag a die from an occupied slot to outside the piles.
Rolling entire dice pile
Pro Tip: You can customize dice piles however you want! For example, organize using a d20 and 3d6 to roll for attack and damage in one roll.
If your pile has more than one (1) die, you will have the option to "Add entire pile" to your current roll. This button appears above each dice pile on mobile and is revealed on hover of individual dice piles on desktop.
Rolls will appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen. To clear these rolls, use the gear icon in the top-left corner of the interface and tap "Clear Chat".
Click on any chat message found in the lower right corner of your screen to expand the roll with detailed information about each die rolled.
Click a chat message again to close the expanded view.
Click the "Hidden Roll" button to make a roll that will only be visible to you. Die themes can customize how numbers are hidden and revealed but generally the numbers are omitted from the die when hidden and fade in when unhidden.
When a hidden roll is made, options to "Peek" and "Unhide" the roll will appear in the roll's chat message.
Tap "Peek" to inspect the results of the roll privately. Tap "Unhide" to reveal the value to everyone in the room.
To clear all 3D dice from your screen, tap the gear icon in the top-left corner of the interface and tap "Clear Board".
Note: This will only clear rolls from your local screen. Other connected players will not be affected. In the future we may introduce additional options - let us know!
See Streaming Mode for more information about connecting dddice with software such as OBS Studio.
