[rfudakrd] Symmetric dice faces

Mark a d6 die with the following number of pips on faces: 0 1 4 5 8 9.  These are the numbers of pips which can be elegantly drawn with 4-fold symmetry on a square face.

Consider a convention in which 2 can be signified as a central 1 dot circled.  Then, on equilateral triangular faces, any natural number can be drawn symmetrically on the face.  For example, 5 is 3 dots on the corners and a central dot circled.
