Double D6

This is a compound of a nearly regular D6 and of a sum-D6. As the sum-D6 that composes the shell gives results from 0 to 5, the core is numbered from 2 to 7.
As a consequence, when you roll this double die, you got the same results as summing the results of two regular D6. But in a very original way!
For instance, in the rendering, the upper face of the core show 3 pips and the upper part of the shell, around this face, shows 2 extra pips. Thus, the result is 3+1+1 that is 5.

SUCESSFULLY PRINTED in White Strong and Flexible.
Not printable in Metal, sorry (movable parts).

@Tamfang Happy that you like it. I confess it is a little bit strange. I could have numbered both part from 1 to 6 as standard D6. But I wanted to minimize the number of dots in the corners. That why the core is numbered from 2 to 7 and the frame from 0 to 5. But the sum is still from 2 to 12 as you would expect the sum of two D6 to be...

That's cute! I had to draw a diagram and table to convince myself that it works.
