I'm not certain whether anyone ever responded to your query, but the
answer is that there *is* indeed a random-number tile, though it's
not easy to find it these days unless you know where to look.
In our early etoy experiments the etoy environment always had a
"supplies" palette right before the user's eyes, where one could find
various oddball items like this, but the environment that had this
got removed a while back
Nowadays, to get a random-number tile, you need to use a "Standard
Parts Bin" (in the Author Tools menu). On the last page of this
parts bin you'll find some tiles, including one labeled "random 180".
This is what you need -- just grab tear one off from the parts bin
and drop it onto any number-valued tile in any script.
BTW I notice that the tiles on that page of the parts bin are for
some reason nowadays entirely the wrong height -- undoubtedly a
consequence of the big layout overhaul of a month or two ago -- but
when dropped into a script they assume the proper size.
Note that there are a couple of other useful tiles on that page,
including boolean-valued tiles that report whether the mouse-button
is up or down.
