Stick Dice Varieties

Stick dice are mainstay in the game of Pagaday, Pachisi, Dayakattam. Without stick dice, the game of Pagaday is incomplete. Two or three stick dice are rubbed together within palms and are rolled on the floor. These are rubbed in the palm so as to create randomness. This rubbing and rolling of stick dice is kind of a sacred ritual of this royal game.

These dice are synonymous with the tragic game of Sabha Parva in Mahabharata. Shakuni owns a pair of loaded dice which listen to its master.
