I just noticed the deluxe dice and was happy - as I had made my own with different symbols to help with colorblind use... Then I noticed the Deluxe Dice have the same engraving on every side (grrr)

Could someone with the deluxe dice post a picture of the red and green sides side by side so I can see if I can tell the difference in the shades they use

I think you're seeing double.

(You've double posted identical threads - deleting your post in the other one before anyone responds to it would make it disappear and reduce clutter in the forum.)

I find the black and blue dice difficult to distinguish in dim lighting.

There are already some pictures in the gallery.




I also found some custom die with different symbols:

Well I'm color blind, and with sun light I could see the difference between green and red, but with bulbs (I have halogens) there was absolutely no way for me to see which of these face it was.
I painted the red face with a brighter red and now I'm quite fine. These dice a more prone to endless spin on one of their corner which sometimes fits very well in tense situations.

But if you want to get them merely for colors... forget it. And it is true that blue and black might appear the same, depending on light and angle.

Somebody took the original dice, and affixed colored stickers that not only had the correct color, but also the correct symbol that would match with its Tao Token. E.g., yellow has a bowl of rice, blue has mirror, red has the incense, black has coins. Nevermind color blind or not. That looks like it was nice for everybody.
