That's easy. A single chit draw fits nicely on a d100 table.

Erm, that's in effect rolling X times on the 1 chit table, something I
tried to avoid. IMHO, the whole point of rolling dice and table-lookup
is
that it has to be faster than picking chits. I don't find rolling 10
different colored d10's very convenient (in effect 1d10000000000).

I have the chart on my web pages, it's at
http://www.swob.dna.fi/mini/gzg/
I think.
