Definitely not a board game but perhaps the collective wisdom here will help me remember what these metallic 'dice' (meant to be cow knuckle bones or some such, as I recall?) are used for? My memory is that it is an Australian or New Zealand game and these were the entirety of the components.

This is thought to be the origin of dice as we know it. These are metal versions of OG dice. Pretty cool.
