With a basic die (number cube), there will be six facets, and each facet will feature a printed number from 1 to 6. Therefore, there are six possibilities when you throw a typical number cube: In other words, you may roll a one, a two, a three, a four, a five, or a six. However, in many games, a pair of dice is used, multiplying the amount of possibilities- with a pair of dice, twelve will be the highest number you can roll (this is a combination of two sixes), and two will be the lowest possible outcome (when you roll two ones).

  • Gaming dice

Some gamers add more excitement to their games by choosing number cubes that aren't typical cubes at all - these dice may be round, with many different facets carved into the diameter of their surface. When this type of number cube is rolled, it can produce more than six results. Number cubes can be triangular as well. One example of a popular game that uses these interesting, geometric number cubes is the strategy role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons.

  • Making a number cube

You can create your own number cube by folding stiff cardboard into a cube shape and printing numbers onto the side with a marker. Large cube shapes are one possibility, but most people do prefer to play with smaller number cubes that are more portable. Number cubes may be used to test probability and the odds of rolling certain numbers. With dice, chance is a key element, but probability does play a role.

To learn more about number cubes, buy an inexpensive die at a dollar store of game shop (or toy store) and then examine its surface to see how many sides it has. After this, you may want to perform some probability experiments of your own.
