Dice games have existed for a long time and nobody is quite sure when they originated. The earliest known dice games came from present-day Iran almost five-thousand years ago.

The only dice game I know how to play is Yahtzee.

I've always just seen the square kind, so these look pretty interesting. Back in the day, I had quite a few friends who used to play dice games, but I never understood what in the heck they were doing. (lol) Hugs...and Happy Saturday! RO

I love dice games. When I was in Victoria recently, I learned how Fantan was played in Victoria's Chinatown.
