Day 19 - 20 of 100 Days of Code: Dice Game App

Today I built a dice game web app with HTML, Javascript and CSS. The dice game involves two players which could be real or arbitrary. When the player clicks roll dice, it selects a random number between 1-6 as a normal dice would. Any player whose total score is greater than or equals to 20 wins the game.
