Not the game we know of but some tiny dice at the Museum of London ( in London) - they must be about 3mm across - weighted or misnumbered, found as part of ancient archaeological objects in the London area.

Risky to use a die that only has high numbers (or only low). Since 5 of the 6 sides are visible, you have to count on no one noticing that opposite sides of the die have the same number.

Probably why the guy who owns the dice is dead. LOL

Formula D dice also don't contain all numbers, yet aren't "fraudulent" - maybe they were used to play a particular game or variant which has been lost in time

He'd probably be alive today if not for those darned dice!

Those coins would make a pretty sweet component upgrade.
