Just got the game in the UK, really looking forward to setting it up.
Do the stickers need to be applied to dice in a certain way, ie would you stick them on so you have opposites like an ordinary dice??

Red dice - would you do 5 & 0, 3 & 1, 2 & 1 on opposite sides?

Sorry if it's a silly question but not sure if it'll effect outcomes if I just randomly stick them on?

I don't know the official answer, but I know the practical answer--the order in which numbers show up on a "fair" dice have no relation to its random characteristics. It is only for aesthetics.

I personally always try and find the most evenly distributed way to put stickers onto dice because I like the look of them that way, (and as you say, it's the way normal dice are laid out.)

Check out the weblinks on the main BGG page for this game. Second one down (currently) should be a link to dice layout.

Sorry for some reason my PC is playing up and I can't copy the link. Now off to reboot.

Of course as mentioned the layout should not matter with balanced dice.
