I got permission to post rules for 5 to 8 players! Here they are:

More Than Four Players?
To play with more than four players, you’ll need more than one Blank White Dice set. You’ll play in two-player teams. When you play with six or eight players, your teammate is the player across the table from you.

Example: Alice, Barnard, Chloe, Darren, Elsie, and Francois about to play a six-player game. They’re seated around the table in the order listed above. Alice and Darren are partners, Barnard and Elsie are partners, and Chloe and Francois are partners.

Play is just like a normal game of Blank White Dice with the following exceptions:

Your teammate is not your opponent. If a card refers to an opponent, you cannot select your teammate.
You're playing to 13 points.
The game ends if both players on a team have 13 points or more. If more than one team triggers the end game, the team with the greatest combined score wins. Resolve ties normally.
If you would gain or lose points from an effect, you can transfer that gain or loss to your teammate. You must transfer the entire gain or loss to your teammate; you may not transfer only part of it.
Any points that would put you above 20 transfer to your teammate instead.
For intermediate and experienced complexity games, deal three icon cards to each player during setup.
For intermediate complexity games, let each player contribute one card to the tableau and put the other two in the reserve.
For experienced complexity games, let each player contribute two cards to the tableau and put the last one in the reserve.

Five or Seven Players
If you’re playing with five or seven players, and you’re the “odd one out,” you’ll have a “dummy” partner with its own pawn and its own set of dice. The dummy player “sits” across the table from you, just like a normal partner would. You will (functionally) have two seats at the table, taking a turn on your turn, and taking the dummy player’s turn.
In all other respects, the game plays the same as a six- or eight-player game.

Team play is my favorite way to play BWD.
