Plato said God invented dice. This essay tells us this and many other little known facts in the history of the dice, from its earliest forms as heel bones to gamers and gaming in the 19th century.
This celebration and meditation on dice through the ages includes an explanation of the etymology of "craps" and various tales of armless dicers and ingenious hustlers. It also features the tale of Scandinavian kings of the Middle Ages who diced for islands.
