Parlez-vous français, Laurent?

I think that there may be some confusion in translation.  

I have a good idea of what you mean by 'displacement', but I am not
absolutely sure.  I note that you are determining a difference in the
subsequent face-value according to distance.

But the possible faces will be determined by the dice type.  Did you know
that there are left-hand and right-hand dice?  This is based upon the
order of the faces in relation to two opposing faces.  

This is further explained at the following site:

So, players might have different types of dice on the playing field. 
Unless the specific type was determined beforehand.

And just an aside, I would not consider any reasonable game arbitrary. 
Regardless of the amount of chaos present. ;-)

This includes Fischer's Random Chess.
