Games (literally meaning "zero") was first
played in Italy during the fourteenth century, though
its origin stretches back almost indefinitely into
prehistory. Richard Epstein, writing in The Theory
of Gambling and Statistical Logic, traced the games
to a Roman legend written long before the birth
of Christ. The legend tells of a young vestal virgin
whose fate was to be decided by the gods. She was
to throw a novem dare, or nine-sided die. If she
rolled an 8 or 9, she was to become a high priestess.
If she rolled a 6 or 7, she was to be disqualified
from religious office and her vestal status discontinued.
Anything less and she was to walk into the sea,
never to return.
