Anyone have any recommendations for a dice rolling app for this game? I'm taking a plane trip by myself and may end up annoying the person next to me if I'm rolling dice for 3+ hours. Is there a good Android dice rolling app that would work for RTTA?

Prime Dice D&D Pro looks promising, because of the following features:
- Custom dice (you could put pictures of the RTTA die faces on)
- Lock selected die in place (for some games like Yahtzee RTTA)

But:
It's not for free.
I haven't used it myself (yet).

If you're willing to exercise some memory or print out a crib sheet, you can just get away with regular d6's...
green = the logical association behind this

1 = ONE jar = single jar
2 = TWO jars = double jar + skull 'n crossbones
3 = THREE workers.. *could be 3 food too, but I was taught this way and stuck with it... plus, you could kinda argue that food's more important, so it gets ranked higher = 3 workers
4 = TWO or TWO (but added together = FOUR) = 2 workers or 2 food
5 = THREE food... *carbon opposites, so since 3 got the 3 workers, this gets the 3 food = 3 food
6 = 7 coins, but SIX is the single highest units of stuff you can get in a single roll, in so there's the pairing = 7 coins.

if you line the inside of the boxtop with felt and roll the dice into the top it won't bother anybody.

it's gotta be thin (of which would it still work?) and precisely done, as IIRC, the lid barely closes as is.

Hi

I have created a simple, but flexible, custom dice app for Android which you can use for this purpose - it allows you to put whatever text you want on the sides of a die and has reroll functionality.

It is called FlexiDice, is free and you can get it from here:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.siroak.flexidice
More info at: http://flexidice.siroak.com

Enjoy!
Cheers,
Chris

It might not make noise, but if I was stuck on a plane sitting beside someone who was rolling a dice for over three hours, I would lose my mind.
