Hi all

Has anyone an opinion or better still information on the provenance of the following dice games found in books and web sites

Mia / Meier (form of Liar/Liar's/Doubting Dice)  -said to be Viking

Farkle (aka 10,000) - said to be Tudor

Blind dice - said to be 16th C Italian

I can find nothing to suggest that they are anything other than 20th C

all the best

jon
