Subject: Duryodhana's dice game / THE GAME OF DICE
I would like to know as to how THE GAME OF DICE /
Duryodhana's dice game from The Mahabharata was played ? What type of
game did Shakuni and Yudhishthir play - what type of board game was it ?
and how many throws of dice it took for a turn of the game to be completed
and how many turns of the game were there . It is also stated that the
game was already rigged by Shakuni - how was the game already rigged , were
the dice connected with magic or were the dice loaded with weights. I
would also like to know how did the dice look like , how many numbers or
back spots were there on each side of the dice and how many dice were used
in the game .
Any information regarding how it is
played ie the technique of the game would be appreciated by me dearly .
Looking forward to your answer soon.
Thank you very much.
