The Game of Dice

Wooden dice were used in games of chance from the earliest of times and these reproductions are based on the traditional creations.

We also offer a series of Dice games that would have often been used in the old Drinking Areas (Taverns) etc.

Some religious groups frowned on the use of dice in games and as a result TEETOTUMS (a form of numbered top) were used instead. These are also available from FAIRE TYME TOYS.
