I report discobot is broken. It keeps rolling me.

Can a third party roll for us?

I only have 20 dice. Shameful, I know!

3, 2, 1, 1, 3, 1, 1, 3, 1, 2, 2, 3, 2, 3, 3, 3, 1, 3, 2, 1

If you want to make sure that no one plays twice in a row, then flip a coin (1d2) instead of a 3-sided die.

@discobot roll 1d2

Heads (or a 1) would give the next turn to the next person on the list, while tails (or a 2) would give the next turn to the previous person on the list. The list would wrap-around at the top and the bottom.

Oh no, you are NOT going to only take part as a rule pendanter.
You are fourth.
It’s written down now.

You also get to write the dice/coin part of the wiki, it’s yours, take it.

Sorry, but I can’t resist the pedantry …

In general, if you have N players, number them with 0, 1, 2, … , N – 1.

Roll a 1dN (and subtract 1) to select the first player.

Then after each turn, roll 1d(N – 1), add that result to the ID of the current player, and take the remainder after dividing by N (i.e., the modulo N operation, which is like wrapping around on the list).

EDIT: see the updated wiki post above

Is it still my turn? I wasn’t up at 5 am to go.

I’ll accept most modifications, but I’ll put my foot down on people losing their turn because they were sleeping.
