I think the most interesting fact about that I learned about gambling is that Herodotus, the fifth century B.C. Greek "Father of History, " attributed the invention of dice to the Lydians, who gambled as a way to get their minds off the great famine in the reign of King Atys.I feel this way because many people take gambling 4 grandted.Because most people gamble just for the money and not for the experince.

I liked the article it looked really cool. I also liked the part about the dice being made out of bones. It is really weird and cool at the same time.

The most interesting fact that I learned about gaming is that the people thought the gods gave them the numbers and that it wasn't a game of chance.

I liked the history of Egypt and also the info. on slotmachines. It's always interesting to read about what the Egyptians thought about the afterlife. The slotmachine info was interesting because I never thought about when it was invented.

Here are three facts that i thought were interesting to me were:
First is that they gambled to get their minds off of femine.
Second is that gambling was all the way in the year 1,000 B.C
Finally that the dice were made from teeth and bones.

some of the intresting was that there were dice made before they were recorded. because there were or was something that was invented and the person didn't get the credit for it

I like how the dice were made out of teeth and bones. Plus if war lasted to long then they would roll dice to determine the winner. afro
