It would be nice to have dice stats live somewhere in menu
There is plenty of background/water... it could even be put there (perhaps in grey so it's not intrusive)
Would really like this feature. The information is already there in the game log, just makes it easier to check back.

I think that's ridiculous. That information wouldn't be available to you if you were playing the board game.
@Kansas - yes it is, it's called writing down every roll on pen and paper.You may be surprised to hear that people actually do that, but we do.
Available at the end of the game maybe. Super unnecessary during
Add the ability to see the dice distribution during the game as a bar graph.

At the moment it's only possible to see the dice statistics at the end of the game. It would be nice to be able to view them while the game is still going.
"Show dice stats during the game (histogram)" (suggested by Lawand on 2020-11-06), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
One suggestion, slightly related, would be to change the dice stats graph to include a slider so that you can select the turn range.e.g. you could set the slider to show what was rolled 0-20 to see if any number got rolled heavily in the early game, or 40-50 to confirm if a certain tile rolling gave a person a victory.
It is useful during play, when placing the robber. Live stats do help game play. It is the only good thing left on Catan Universe. It would be great to have it on Colonist. Thanks.
It would be helpful to see the dice distribution at any point in the game. This is one feature that I like better about Catan Universe.

I really liked the ability to see in game dice stats in ASO Brain

Great Idea! Make a Huge difference in Games.
This would be a really nice feature! Very regularly, I wish I could see, just out of curiosity, how many of each number has been rolled throughout the game.
What would be the benefit of dice distribution? It, in theory, should not provide any information as to what might be rolled next, as probability is independent. In any given game, we should not expect any kind of particular distribution.
I think it would be nice to have. Not that it needs to be LIVE - but maybe once the game ends there is a slider that indicates the duration of the game i.e. `time`. Example: Say, I have a settlement at 8 grain. And 8 only rolled much later in the game which perhaps was the reason for late cities. When the game ends, I do not care if 8 rolled 15 times in total, but what is more important for me is understanding did it roll when I needed it.
This would be so awesome to have. Could be a small button next to the main dice (like the barbarian die in C&K) that opens a window with the stats, similar to how clicking the trade button opens the trade window. Live stats are super relevant. If I have coordinated roads and that number rolls ten times, WHEN in the game those rolls happen makes a huge difference. If it doesn't roll once for the first 25 turns, that's huge.I agree that it could provide a slight advantage (i.e. lower requirement for resource tracking especially early game); however, it would apply that advantage equally to all players. I also like the idea of a slider at the end of the game that shows the cumulative dice stats at each turn.
Feels like a bit of Gamblers fallacy.I would love to watch it but it serves no practical purpose.Fix the 5-6 player info on the right side of the screen first please please please...
Now I can see bots destroy me in real time lol
Yes, I think it would be usefull, dice have tendecies which you observe in the real board, but on the screen I find it difficult.
It's crazy that most of the people in this forum don't understand what independent event means. The real reason this feature is useful is to see is for resource tracking, especially in the early game (and I think players should do that without this crutch).The reason I fear implementation of this feature is that some of the people in this forum (including some of the above comments) don't understand what independent event means. There are SOOOOO many posts here crying that the dice are unfair. Go roll dice 50 times in real life and you will most likely not see a perfect distribution, and yet, people STILL come and cry on the forums because their chart at the end of the game was wonky. I think if people see their chart live they will only cry more on the forums.
It would be cool to have access to the dice stats throughout the game, instead of just at the end. My group is always interested in knowing how many rolls of a particular number have happened during the game, but we are unable to see that information until after the game is completed.

bar graph. aso.brain games had this, it was so nice.
I think adding more and more such tools will not make the game better. It can reach the point at which people will ask about the possibility of seeing others' cards instead of tracking, because, if you want, you can still write all the cards of people somewhere and count them.
Did you actually did something to rolling program? Since some days, stats are crazy and games too short, only based on numbers. The game is losing everything. It is not only one game, I am doing screenshots of all of them.
Definitely would be nice. I just finished a 4 person ranked game. 56 turns and ZERO 9s rolled. Had eight 11s and nine 3s roll though. Made for a fun game of being on wheat, but not having it :).
Surprised this hasn't been added yet - exists in catan universe
Use Colonist dice statistics chrome addon
Please DON'T implement this - it will only lead to more whining during the game. Having the info after the game is fine.
