Hello all, my boyfriend is getting a tattoo tomorrow with the theme "Roll the hard six" which is 2 6 sided die with the 3 sides up. His artist has not gotten back to him with art for approval so I was going to make him a backup picture he could bring in as a reference for the artist.

He wants red dice with white pips for his picture (ala vegas style)- the colors aren't 100% crucial as I can photoshop up the right ones if need be. I just looked at our pile of dice and nearly all of our D6's are numbered rather than pipped and we don't really have any red ones.

Cross referencing our collection, does anyone know of any games that have red D 6's, with pips preferably white? Not looking for special symbols instead of pips, though patterns or swirling etc in addition to pips could work. Sadly we don't have a poker set to use. Alternatively, if you have a photo of your own stuff I could use that would be awesome. If I can find something in my collection of games I can use I'll will take some photos tonight. I'll toss some GG at someone who can help.

Thanks!

The "Hard Six" is a craps term. So I suggest using dice that have the hard edges and corners, and not the rounded edge/corner style.

Make sure you get all of the other visible dice faces in the proper orientation, otherwise, it just won't be right.

I might have some of the red casino dice at home (if not, they're in storage). I can check, and if I have them, I can take a few pictures later tonight or tomorrow.

The Isle of Doctor Necreaux has transparent rounded ones


Gauntlet of Fools has a lot of 12mm rounded ones


I was surprised that I knew these off-hand.

Edit: I'm an idiot for not reading the full post. Farkle might have some. I would source some casino dice images off tumblr, flickr, and designspiration (in that order)

Out of these suggestions I only have Farkle, (which is apparently still packed in the garage and buried, crud) Flash point (which only has 1 die and I need two, crud!) and the only edition of Risk not buried in the garage is Godstorm, which apparently uses black and white dice. :/ Keep the suggestions coming guys! I'll keep looking.

The nice thing about Farkle is you can find it at your corner Walgreens and take photos today.

Pete (sees it there all the time)

Yeah... so not buying another copy of Farkle. Barf. I hate that game. My S/O's family loves it.

I had success! I started looked at game boxes we haven't played yet. Lords of Vegas has several red D6's and Eclipse has red D6's as well, and they even have the sharper, less rounded edges. Thanks to everyone that helped out!

I think everything by The Gamers comes with red dice.

Another thread that proves once again that Eclipse is everything a board game should be.

x100 ! Many non-gamers don't know that dice are labelled in a specific manner(opposing faces add up to seven) - make sure the artist does all the sides correctly.

Yeah, I didn't know that until recently when playing Alien Frontiers and people were able to flip their dice really quickly when using some of the special abilities and I'm of course picking it up and looking at them to find the right side. I got enlightened, though I am sure I will forget soon enough.
