**Edited as it's stated below by Michael that this is how the dice should be. I was still going off an old conversation we had about black versus white numbers and didn't know it had been changed to gray.


I just got my copy and noticed the dice numbers aren't white. They are gray, just like the dice. Anyone else or just mine?

I received a prototype die during the campaign and that one clearly has painted numbers (the orange one in the pic).

What kind of paint would be best to try to fix the issue? I think I'm going to make them black.

My copy of Tiny Epic Defenders had some cards mis-cut. I sent Gamelyn Games some pics, and they had a replacement game in my hands within a week. I'm sure they'd be happy to send you some properly-painted dice. (Because who doesn't need more bullet dice? Amiright?)

EDIT: It sounds like that is how the dice are intended to be painted.

Mine are the same.... They are painted, but just really faded. I don't mind filling them in with a little more white paint

Justin, at first I thought mine were faded as well but I believe it's just a little bit lighter from the cutting process. What kind of paint do you suggest?

A Sharpie paint marker should work just fine.

This is how all the bullet dice are filled in the games. They are ink filled with a cool gray 2 pantone.

I am going with the good old technique of using crayon as I did with the dice in my first D&D set many years ago. Just rub the numbers with a crayon and then wipe off the part not in the depression.

This started out sounding a bit sarcastic...but ended up being quite a useful tip!

Never heard of this before, will this throw off the balance of the dice?

I was going to suggest this as well, as I remember when I was younger, I bought some dice and they included a white crayon to fill in the numbers.
I wasn't sure if it was still done though and didn't want to sound like an idiot

Yeah, got mine today and the dice are so bad to read, I think I'm just going to throw in some regular dice in the box to use...

Man, that prototype die in the picture looks better in every way than the final ones.

I even bought extra packs to use in Shadows of Brimstone. Not too happy about the change to the dice.

The funny part was I was sent the prototype because I was worried the white numbers wouldn't be easily read by aging eyes and Michael wanted feedback on it. But then I opened the game today and saw these which aren't easy at all. Guess I missed the part of the campaign where the dice changed size and number color.

I'm from the same era. What works even better is a grease pencil.

So, uh.. just got my package today, and guess what? The extra dice packs totally have white painted numbers.

Well, at least what I paid extra for is good to go!
