Metropolitan Museum of Art has REALLY old school dice

Think you have some old dice? This white stone six-sided die is on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is originally from Egypt between 30 B.C.–A.D. 364. What’s more, it still doesn’t have overly rounded edges, which is more than can be said for some more modern dice. It almost makes you wonder if the people who rolled it would sing ” DM says you’re gonna see Anubis, roll a D6″?
