~The King of Hearts is the only king in a deck of cards without a mustache
There are four kings in every deck of cards. And while they all look similar, the king of hearts is the only royal fellow who doesn’t have a mustache.

He mistakenly lost his facial hair in a redesign.

~The opposite sides of a dice cube will always add up to seven
While the lowest number on a dice is one and the highest is six, those numbers—and the ones in between—will always equal seven when added to the number on the opposite side of the dice.
