This bowl and dice game was played throughout the Northeast. This game was made sometime in the 19th century.
To play, two players took turns throwing the dice into the bowl and received counting sticks for each die that landed decorated side up.
The rules vary, but the general goal of the game was for one person to win all the counting sticks.
