This was suggested by Frank Haselein in another thread. 

I think it would require a lot of logic for a feature nobody(?) would
use. For the "manual rollout" you would certainly not want the same
sequence of dice, and I really can't see the purpose of "this is how the
game would have continued _if_ I had moved the correct 24/18(2)",
because if you had moved differently you would *not* have gotten the
same dice (assuming you're using a true RNG such as real-world dice, and
assuming you don't believe in fate, astrology, and that sort).
