thru Chess Problem #15
#16 to #50
#51 to #89
"And because this chess needs dice to speed up its play, We ordered dice to be made to play it with. And also to show the hierarchy of the pieces. And these die are made like this: they have seven sides and the side with the highest number of pips is seven. They could not be made in another way for this game. Because the shape of this die is uneven it falls edge up, with two sides showing. The side closest to the roller is his. If they fall so that it cannot be determined which face to use, they are to be thrown until it can."
