It's already happened anon.

We've been using dice for about as long as we've lived settled lives.

we have a pretty firm idea of how The Royal Game of Ur was played, and that existed around 4,000 years ago

Gonna link this because it teaches you the game and is also a fun video. Plus the guy who fuckin translated the rules is the one doing the teaching.

I'm just going to imagine that's ancient Roman Lucite and not look it up.

I wonder what games the ancient Romans played with d20s and d6s.
It was probably a Roman equivalent of craps or something, but I find it more amusing to belive already the ancient Romans played tabletop RPGs (it's not like they didn't invest about half the stuff we still do already).

If historians base what they know about how we played games like D&D on things like the rules, they will have maybe 3% of the picture.

I love how precise the Roman die is. It's not mathematically perfect, but it's pretty close to the mark.

>Ceremonial purposes

>> No.74237878

I've read thd D20s we tr e probably used for divinations, but there's no hard evidence of that.

>> No.74240922

it's like the guy above you posted, whenever archaeologists find something they don't know the use of they just say "ceremonial/religious purposes" and move on
