Types of Dice

There are so many varieties of dice that there are collectors who have amassed thousands of them, including antique, novelty, promotional, crooked and casino dice.  Take a look at the category list below and learn all about the differing variety of dice.

The words "dice" and "die" (the singular of dice) are derived from the old French "d", which in turn comes from the Latin "datum", meaning "something which is given or played". Dice are defined as throwable objects which may come to rest on a number of different sides/positions, used as a way of generating random results. This definition covers more than just the common six-sided cubes with dots, as you may see from the categories below.
