      Not sure about the PC version, but the U.S. XBOX360, if there are numerals in the die, they are extremely tiny. I’ve been counting based on the number of points/vertices the die has.

      A single circle is 1.
      Two overlapping circles is 2.
      Triangle is 3.
      Square is 4.
      Five-point star is 5.
      Six-point star is 6.

      Another way to verify 1 and 2 is basing it off your Vigor. Just to the left of your Vigor, the symbol will change to reflect how much Vigor you have remaining. Use up some Vigor to see what each number looks like to double check before going into a die game.

      Late I know, but hoping this will help someone in the future.

      They aren’t marked in roman numerals a triangle is not three, a star is not five, its a v. It don’t make sense

      • limered

        They are numbered. There are small roman numbers in the middle.
        I means 1
        II means 2
        III means 3
        IV means 4
        V means 5
        VI means 6
