Why we use class to make a dice ?

I know that it is a OOP course but in normal situation it will be much easier and faster to make it without class so why we do it like a class, just for a course or why ?

You are totally right that OOP adds an extra layer of effort to program development, and in a small program like this example it might not be the optimal choice for the best results-to-time-spent ratio. But in larger projects it can be very nice both for development and future maintenance.

This sample project just provides an opportunity to see the basic principles in action without writing a whole lot of code.
