This packages is a bit old and meant to be used with the pdfTeX  
engine. With XeTeX you can:

	\newfontfamily\dice{Apple Symbols}
	\dice{⚀⚁⚂⚃⚄⚅} %  U+2680…U+2685

Besides Apple Symbols you can also use GNU Freefonts, Arev Sans,  
DejaVu, Code2000, STIX, XITS,...

They all have a white background and black foreground.



In a world without walls and fences, who needs gates and windows?
