Remember the eps in the Herc/Xena shows that depict ancient versions of
modern casino games?  I know that it was intendended as anacronistic
humor, but I was wondering....is there any basis in history to that type
of gaming?

I know dice go all the back to biblical days, (and before), and cards go
back to the middle ages; and what about roulette and others.

Yeah, I know this is a silly question, I want to start something.
