It's pretty dang hard to tell what's what without leaning right on top of the crisis die. As alternatives, I've thought about...

1) using jumbo dice. Problem is it may damage surfaces and require a dice tray or its equivalent

2) making 12 cards. 6 that have one type of back, the other 6 with a different type of back. May have to get a proxy card and card sleeves for this one though. I suppose people who know the game really well can use some knowledge of which die was choosen to his advantage... I think.


Any other ideas?

I actually literally came across this site 10 minutes ago

http://www.ericharshbarger.org/dice/

At the very bottom he says you may be able to custom order dice.

If we BGGers make a template I wonder we'd be able to directly order them from him.

Of course this does not solve your problem whatsoever.

The only thing I can think of is using regular dice and just having a reference for which number goes with which Crisis. But that sucksn

Not sure how big you want them, but if you are really afraid of damage by a jumbo die, you could use wooden cubes. They are less heavy and the softer wood is less likely to damage anything than hard plastic. A quick search on Spielmaterial shows that 16mm wooden cubes are easily available.
Another option is a 20mm blank wooden die. (also on Spielmaterial) It's bigger but since it has rounded corners you will have about the same print size as the 16mm I guess.
If you think this is still too small: how about a 50cm foam die? laugh
