Dice vs. die: Which is singular, which is plural?

So much confusion exists over which version of these words (referring to a six-sided object used in games) is singular and plural, that many people just cast their fate to the wind.

And, as if at a casino, most people lose. Well, get it backwards to be more exact.

Dice is plural, as in We rolled the dice and got two sixes.

Die, contrary to popular belief, is singular; to wit, Monopoly uses two dice, but Clue uses just a die.

Here’s a neat memory trick: “Dice rhymes with mice. Mice is plural just like dice.”
