Just a note for those less familiar with English and all its inconsistencies:

no dice
one die ("one dice" is not strictly correct but used quite often so is not too bad) :roll1:
two dice :roll2: :roll2:
three dice :roll3: :roll3: :roll3:
four dice :roll4: :roll4: :roll4: :roll4:
etc
"dices" isn't ever correct when referring to the little random number/event generators that you roll for playing games. |_P

Yeah, it's one of my old weaknesses. Theoretically known to me, but somehow i am not able to implement :) There are more words like that in my language, even in my mother tongue.

No, let a German tell you:
ein Würfel,
zwei Würfelel,
drei Würfelelel,
vier Würfelelelel,
...
siebenundzwanzig Würfelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelelel,
und so weiter.

When our forefathers invented German, they thought they were oh so clever and the language so easy...
I'm writing my rules in English because it's freakin' EASIER! Ghaaah!!

Thanks for this explanation. I always thought it was
1 Würfel
2 Würfels
3 Würfellers
4 Würfelsellers

And so on

Corrected design.
Knightkrawler, i was trying your idea with overlapping symbols, but it didn't look good - two symbols on a side, the pair overlapping and the single symbol with a bit of distance, wasn't working for me.

Maybe this has to be printed on the big die size - 19mm.

Looks good, cause on second thought, overlapping symbols at the real size could be too indistinct.
