## Follow Up: Prime Dice

We also asked, on this week’s segment how to label the faces of some ordinary dice, with twelve different numbers (we did say different didn’t we?) so that every roll produces a prime number. This puzzle is from the fascinating site www.primepuzzles.net. Don’t peek!

I found one possible solution: (1, 3, 13, 27, 43, and 57); (4, 10, 16, 40, 70, and 136).

(7 97 16057 19417 43777 1091257)
and (0 4 6 10 12 16)

should work. The first set are prime sextuplets I found
and the second set are the prime difference intervals.

I did a long search to find this solution which has only multiples of 6 on one die:
{6,66,1746,2676,5406,21156}
{1,7,13,31,37,65}

my solution involves some smaller numbers:
(0;6;12;36;42;96) and (5,17,31,47,61,71)
