A History of Dice (external blog)


A brief perusal on Boardgamegeek provided this great link to a timeline of the history of dice, posted to the Awesome Dice blog. You should really visit the site to get the full up article, but I couldn’t help but post the timeline graphic, which shows some research was done! Did you know that the first recorded dice were four siders? That the 20 sided dice goes back to 100 AD or earlier? I didn’t! Check out the main article to learn more about the ubiquitous cubes we play games with.
