Goodmorning, everyone.

As silly as the question may sound, I need to know if the FRENCH edition of the game has transparent dice (like the English one) or the awful opaque dice of the Italian version.

Thanks in advance!

It depends. I ordered mine directly from FunForge and got the transparent dices (and the void and entanglement add-ons). A friend of mine bought it in a shop and had the opaque dices and neither expansion.
I think you can always ask FunForge to send you the transparent dices and the entanglement expansions if you have proof of purchase, all buyers are entitled to it (not the void tile though).

My copy from CoolStuffInc came with transparent dice, but also came with an extra bag of opaque dice. Soon I found out why: the original dice started getting stickier and stickier. The replacement dice worked like a charm.

Yeah, I don't know if that's the case with more recent printings, but it was pretty gross. Didn't notice any problem at first until I picked up the green dice. Then every time I opened the box, all the dice seemed to get stickier and stickier. The replacement dice weren't as shiny, but they were a welcome change at that point.

My French edition has transparent dice (they don't really seem that at the first glance but if you squint you can see the pips on the other side). Minor stickiness and deformity.

I wonder if they still replace dice and if I'm eligible since my copy is second hand (no original proof of purchase left).

I bought the game back when it was first released and had the infamous greasy/sticky dice problem - Although I received the replacement dice (and Void expansion tile for free), I still preferred the look of the older dice so I simply scrubbed them with soap and water - problem fixed!
