Dice are small throwable objects with multiple resting positions, used for generating random numbers. Dice are suitable as gambling devices for games likecraps, and are also used in non-gambling tabletop games. A traditional die is a rounded cube, with each of its six faces showing a different number of dots (pips) from 1 to 6. When thrown or rolled, the die comes to rest showing on its upper surface a random integer from one to six, each value being equally likely. A variety of similar devices are also described as dice; such specialized dice may have polyhedral or irregular shapes and may have faces marked with symbols instead of numbers. They may be used to produce results other than one through six. A dice tray or a dice box is a piece of gaming equipment, a tray used to contain thrown dice, for gambling or board games.
