Dice have been rolled for thousands of years. They've been made out of bone and ivory. Various games have been played with dice as their focus. Dice have also had many more than six sides at times. The latest development in the history of dice, which we're proud to offer here at Homestructions.com, is being able to roll virtual dice for free. In fact, you don't have to limit your rolling to two dice as we offer the ability to simultaneously roll five dice.
Playing with dice is believed by many to have first occurred around 3000 B.C. in present-day Shahr-e Sukhteh, Iran, as part of a board game that also included 60 checkers. However, other researchers have found evidence that dice dating even further back, to 6000 B.C., have been found in Egyptian tombs. Of course, the actual first use of dice predates the first evidenced use, so they have likely been used for a considerably longer time period than 8,000 years.
One of the most popular games that uses the act of rolling dice to move playing pieces forward is backgammon. This game dates in various forms 5,000 years and is one that, similar to poker, allows those who are higher in skill to win more often in the long run despite dice adding a definite luck factor to the play. So, if you pull out your backgammon board and then realize that one or both dice are missing, no need to run to a games store to get them replaced. Just head to www.Homestructions.com/rolldice/ and roll the dice that are found there.
A virtual roller can also be a perfect accompaniment to a Monopoly game that is missing dice. Monopoly, which is based on properties that are located in Atlantic City, N.J., has been played since 1935. Nowadays, different versions of Monopoly are played by players throughout the world, including Pokemon, Star Wars and Game of Thrones.
However, Dungeons & Dragons may be the most popular game that is played with dice. This is also the game that popularized polyhedral or multisided dice, including a 20-sided one that's used.
Playing craps is another popular game that is played with dice, and it's one of the most played ones at casinos in Las Vegas and elsewhere. A roll of 7 is famous amongst craps players. It's also the roll that's most likely to come up as six combinations – 4 and 3, 3 and 4, 5 and 2, 2 and 5, 6 and 1 and 1 and 6 – add up to that number. Interestingly, those combinations sit opposite each other on dice. The next most common rolls are 6 and 8 with five options apiece while 2 and 12 are the least rolled as only two options – 1 and 1 or 6 and 6 – add up to those specific numbers.
Our online dice at Homestructions.com are randomly generated, allowing for those various rolls to occur at an even more accurate ratio than would occur had you been using a non-virtual dice roller. This is due to nearly imperceptible differences in the dice such as a small chip taken off causing certain numbers to be rolled slightly more often than others. Additionally, the center of gravity for most dice is not in the geometric center although those manufactured for casinos get as close to the center as possible. In fact, some players decide to use specifically weighted dice with the goal of having certain rolls come up significantly more often than others will. Regardless, you don't experience any of these issues with our dice as our results are 100 percent random.
