Origin of dice

In the ancient ages, people of cults and religions used different objects as animals' bones or sticks to define the will of gods. These things were thrown up and spilled on the ground, making up some figure. By this figure people determined a desire of ancient gods. This ritual marked the beginning of many fortune-tellings known in our times. Tossing up dice is also considered a trace of the ancient cult.

There is no doubt that dice first appeared in the Orient. Into Europe dice were brought by Arabic merchants and travellers. At the beginning of the XVIII century, the game became known in North America.
