I'm trying to include dice in a probability document but I cannot get the
\Cube symbol to work.

By having 
in the preamble, and 
$P(\Cube{5} \cup \Cube{6})$
in the document it runs without error, but does not return dice.  Rather it
returns an upper case Greek Psi for \Cube{5} and an upper case Omega for

I tried using a different group, i.e. [alpine] and the symbol \Tent returned
what looks to be a slashed zero (it could be a lower case Greek Phi) rather
than a tent figure.

I tried without math mode ($) but I get an error.  Has anyone experience
with ifsym, especially \Cube for dice?  Any thoughts are greatly
