A siggestion for an add-on/expansion/stretch goal: Engineering dice that feature the station symbols rather than pips. I would buy a set in a heartbeat.

Make them white like the standard energy dice, and ink the symbols on each side in the color of the station they are for.

Also, if the black team energy dice were black that would be cool too.

Seriously, even if all ten were white, I would buy them IMMEDIATELY.

When I first opened my set, my first thought was "why don't the engineering dice show station symbols?" The game already has 38 custom dice; I'm sure it would be perfectly feasible to make custom engineering dice.

I think that the only reason this wasn't done is because this would make the engineering station too simple. As soon as the engineer sees the symbols they need, they can pass the dice. With standard dice, the engineer has to think for a moment before passing dice to stations. And in Dice Duel, a moment can be a the difference between winning and losing.
