100 Years of History - Family Legacy Dice Game (Part 1 - 1889)

This generational dice game is inspired by the super fun legacy games created by users like sas8107 and Wandarine!

The game begins in 1889. In this round, we will create the patriarch and matriarch of the family and their first few children. Each subsequent round will be 10 years after the previous round, so we’ll continue to add more family members as time passes.

Here’s a dice roller!
