I have played some Dark moon lately and really enjoy the game and will soon teach my friends the expansion :-)

There is one thing that worries me, it seems that the color of the dices are fading very fast. Have anyone else had this problem and how and if did you solve it?

I'll post an image when I get home tonight.

We've logged only 11 plays so far, and haven't noticed any problem with the dice fading that I can tell.

I haven't had any issues with the dice in my set. The only thing I can think of is players holding/fondling/constantly shaking the dice in-between turns.

Just played this again last night. 17th play of my copy. The dice aren't fading, but...I noticed this some time ago. The black paint from the "strong" dice apparently tends to dissolve and come off a bit when exposed to grubby, sweaty palms, and has "dirtied up" quite a few of the red dice.

What part of the colour is fading? I assume the numbers?

Probably wear if its the numbers. Some people sweat in such a way as it will dissolve the paint. Rare, but seen it happen.

May also be you simply got a bad batch. some or all of the dice may not have been cured properly and any sort of handling will wear off the paint. Seen this happen too.

Somplest solution is to paint in the numbers or use whiteout if paint isnt handy. May take some experimenting to find a paint that will hold to the dice. But that is the easiest solution.
