Rolling the Dice

Postby Cleopatra Aelia on Sat Feb 26, 2005 3:51 pm

Salvete amici,

It's commonly known that the Romans liked to roll the dice. But I wonder if anybody here could tell me the rules of that game, like how many dice you needed to play, which throws counted higher than others etc.

Thanks in advance for your information.

Salve Aelia,

Here's a good website about Roman games : http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/w/x/wxk116/roma/rbgames.html

And this page is specifically about dice :
