I am highly considering buying this game, but on the contingency I can add more players.

Both expansions portray 6 players as the base game has only 5. My question is, if you buy both expansions does it play 7? In the game Alien Frontiers, both expansions add 1 player, thus it goes from a 4 player game to 5 or 6 depending on owning both.

So does Dice Town add 1 player with each expansion?

No, both expansions bring it to 6. And the game really extends out with this many, effectively doubling the game length (each location is resolved twice now for 1st and 2nd place). I can't imagine adding even more players into the mix with the expansions.

Sorry to go off-topic:
Is the revised edition available in English yet?

Only Dice Town: Wild West adds the components needed to play with 6 players. Namely the extra dice and cup.

Dice Town: Cowboys doesn't have a dice and cup, but it does support 6 players if you have the above expansion. (It adds cards and cows that work with any number of players.)

We love Dice Town, but our usual play group has 7. I have the base and the expansion and ended up buying another set of poker dice on eBay. The seventh player has to use a cup from Roll for the Galaxy. The only change during set up was each player gets $7, the bank gets $3, the stage gets $1. I haven't noticed a big time difference between 6 and 7 players.
