Okay, here's a new one: in reading a set of rules they ask for dice numbered as above. Short of going custom or numbering blanks myself, are there any suppliers of such things? My searches of dice suppliers so far are coming up empty.

Thank you for any help!

you can always just go hillbilly (as my office manager calls me when I do cheap hacks) and just say 3=1 & 4=6

Nice solution, Korvessa.

That is good, Korvessa, though the nerd in me will probably still go with blanks marked in. Feels more "official", somehow. Thank you!

An easy solution is to take some 6 sided dice and do the following:

On the "3" side color in the two outside Dots with appropriate colored paint matching the Die Color. Then with a Pin Vise Hand Drill add 2 more dots on the "4" side, and color them the appropriate color, to match the other Dots.

It wouldn't be to difficult, and only takes a few minutes per pair.

You can get blank dice too.

Add paper numbers, or drill out dots, as needed.

Seal the die with a clear coating, if using the paper technique.

Thank you both. Being the lazy fellow that I am, I'll probably end out inking in the numbers with a Sharpie!
