Dice Shaker (micro:bit MicroPython)

In this tutorial we'll take advantage of the 'shake' accelerometer gesture to build a dice shaker, which can be used to play all kinds of games.

from microbit import *
import random

while True:
   if accelerometer.was_gesture('shake'):
      # generate a random integer from 1 to 6
      diceNumber = random.randint(1,6)
      # show the dice number

Notice here we import the random MicroPython library module as well as the standard microbit library module.

After you've downloaded this program to the micro:bit try to shake a six!

As a extra coding challenge you could modify the code to simulate two dice (hint: the minimum throw is 2 and the maximum is 12).
