Babylonian Dice uses one six sided die with four red sides and two blue
sides. Rolling the die red side up means you loose your wager. You may wager
any amount you wish. Rolling the die blue side up you win two times the
amount you wagered. Note that the chances of winning are one in three but
when you win, you win only double your wager so the house has the odds in it
’s favor. Obviously you can play this with a regular die choosing two sides
to win. It can be fast and fun to play. I was told this is the first dice
game and goes back to Babylon. If anyone has any information on this please
let me know at rffreq at inil.com
