What is Dice?

The notion of dice has several uses. The term can refer to the polyhedral object, usually cubic, whose faces exhibit the representation of figures or numbers. These elements are used in numerous games of chance.


For example: “Throw the dice at once!”“To start playing, first we have to find the dice”“On vacation I lost a lot of money playing generala with my friends: the dice were not on my side”.

The most common dice are cube-shaped and therefore have six faces. On each face a point appears, representing a number: one point equals the number 1, two points equals the number 2, three points equals the number 3, etc. The player, by throwing the dice from a bucket or by hand, can obtain various results, determined at random.

Non-cubic dice and more than six faces can be used in role-playing games. There is, in these cases, as many results as possible.

The generala is among the most famous dice games. The goal is to score points by throwing five dice, with a certain valorization for each of the possible moves. The player must assemble the ten or eleven moves contemplated in the general.

In addition to all the above, it should be noted that now we are also talking about virtual dice. This comes to be the one that is used on the Internet to enjoy different online games or even as a simulator for a board game if you have not given physique. This virtual model is put into operation simply by clicking on it.

Similarly, we cannot overlook what is known as “The Dice Club”. It is a Channel of the Youtube platform that specializes in board games, such as Miskatonic, Munchkin, Bang!, Trollhala, The Golden Compass or Dead of Winter, etc.


Given, on the other hand, it is an adjective that qualifies the person who shows a tendency towards something or who is sympathetic and sociable: “Maximilian is a very given young man”“My uncle is given to oppose everything”. The concept may also refer to something established or specific: “We will meet tomorrow in a given place”.

Of course, we cannot forget that Dado is also a person’s name. In particular, this is the diminutive of Italian Alessandro. This is a name of Greek origin that can be translated as “the defender of men” and which is considered to belong to males of strong character, who are always willing to protect their loved ones and who have a certain degree of introversion.

They are also responsible, fighters when it comes to achieving their goals and very charming in the close treatment. Perhaps one of the best known characters with this diminutive is Dado Lequio, Italian aristocrat who was a partner of the Spanish actress Ana Obregón and who is the great-grandson of King Alfonso XIII and second cousin of the current King Felipe VI. He is currently a controversial television contributor.

Finally, given may be a conjugation of the verb give: “I don’t like the clothes I’ve been given to work”“In last night’s game we’ve been beaten up”.
