dice – meaning in Easy English

it seems that dice are small things like coins. People used these to decide what to do. Usually, each one had a dark colour on one side. The other side had another colour. People threw two (or more) dice into the air. The dice would fall to the ground. If both dice had a dark colour on top, the answer was ‘no’. If both dice showed the other colour, the answer was ‘yes’. If there was one dark colour and one other colour, the person threw the dice again.
