What is a single dice called?

Answer

According to Dictionary Reference, a single dice is called a die. A die is a small cube made of plastic, wood, ivory or any other material, typically with six numbered sides. Die and dice have been used in games throughout history.

Dice are used in a variety of games, from craps to Dungeons & Dragons, and the history of these cubes dates back thousands of years. Hieroglyphics depicting Senet, a game using a two-sided playing piece, date back to 3100 B.C. A dig site near Turkey unearthed evidence of dice dating back to 3000 B.C., and a site in Mexico from the same era revealed holes punched in a clay floor similar to those used as scoreboards in modern dice games.
