5. "Dungeons & Dragons" uses polyhedral dice to resolve in-game events.

Answer: True

6. Popular in casinos, this dice game requires players to bet on the outcomes of the roll of a pair of dice.

Answer: Craps

The concept of playing craps is to roll a number with two dice and then roll that same number again before a seven is rolled. There are several ways to bet on craps but pass line and don't pass wagers are the most common. The person at the craps table that rolls the dice is called the shooter.
7. This game is played with three standard dice that are kept in a device shaped somewhat like an hourglass.

Answer: Chuck-a-luck

"Chuck-a-luck" is also referred to as "birdcage" because of the shape of the basket the dice are kept in. The dealer rotates the cage with the dice landing on the bottom. The value of the dice is totaled up after the spin determining the outcome. Before the spin of the cage players make bets and winning bets are paid from the total that the dice landed on.
8. In this game, players roll dice which gives them an in-game currency called quiddity.

Answer: Quarriors!

The main purpose of "Quarriors!" is to accumulate as much quiddity as possible to purchase in-game creature dice and spell dice, which are used to attack other players. This game is also very versatile due to having the ability to buy dice sets which changes gameplay.
9. In this dice game, the objective is to be the first person or team to reach 21 points.

Answer: Bunco

Bunco is played by rolling three dice. You'll earn points if you roll the number that is the same as the round. For round one, that's one. Round two, two. And so on. The game ends once a team reaches 21 points or rolls three ones, for example, which would be a Bunco.

Answer: Perquackey

"Perquackey" is a word game where you roll ten dice and make as many words as possible. You can only use a word once and must be at least three letters long. Once a player reaches a certain level of points, they now can roll the red dice but words must contain at least five letter words.
