Modifying frequencies in a 555 timer

Hi, I was wondering if there's anyway to get two different frequencies out of a 555 timer.

Basically, this is my problem: I'm trying to roll two dice simultaneously, but if they use the same clock, there will only be 6 different combinations. Since the clock is running at a pretty high frequency, I figure that if there's a way for me to get one frequency and another one that's slightly lower (by a hertz, or even less), it would put the two displayed digits out of phase.

Is there any way to do this? I'm really strapped for board space, otherwise I'd probably just use a second clock.

Thanks!

If your pressed for board space, replace the 555 with a 556 dual osc/timer IC.
