The DICE has had a critical role to play in determining fortunes and futures of both kings and paupers. Mythology too alludes to the roll of the dice in determining many a twist and turn in the evolution of mythological stories. Even today the dice has a pivotal role to play in many a game be it snakes and ladders or monopoly. The reason that a dice attracts such attention is because of its unique ability to Decide Instant Choice Everytime.

The beauty of a dice lies in its simplicity, it’s ease of understanding, it’s immediate, dispassionate and fair outcome (provided that the dice is not loaded). With an equal probability for any side to be face up, it is the simplest form of pure chance that can easily settle the question of the next move. The most common dice is the six sided dice. The limitation though is that most times it limits play to just six players / options in games. With the number zero not forming part of a dice face, using more than one dice too has its limitations. Despite these limitations, the dice has players hooked on to it with anticipation, intrigue and hope.

While flipping a coin can give a definite result for a simple two option choice, the dice offers an answer to a minimum of 6 choices. So rather than ask the question should I or should I not and flip a coin, outline at least 6 options and ensure most of them are options you wouldn’t willingly opt for. Then give a number for each option and use a dice to let you decide what option to go with. For students in particular, make a list of unpleasant tasks that you have to do but hate to and let the dice help you decide what to do. Eg. You have six subjects and you like just one of them, hate 3 and tolerate 2. Your problem is how to ensure that you study each subject regularly. Pick up a DICE, number each task and roll the dice. In the order that it comes, the subject is to be studied from Mon – Sat. While the DICE doesn’t give you pleasurable options 5 out of 6 times, it surely helps Decide Instant Choice Everytime

Action Points:
  1. Have you ever noticed the numbering sequence in a standard dice? Can you find the mathematical sequencing that is key to the numbering sequence?
  2. Can you outline the various games that you can play using one or more dice?
  3. Look up the picture of dice which are different from the 6 sided dice.
