  3. So the evolution of dice was just a case of power creep?

    Egyptians: "So, the Sumerians played with d4s? We can do better! Bring on the d12!"

    Romans: "We're Nr. 1! D20 it is!"

  4. The timeline appears incomplete... I noticed immediately there  to be no dice from about 100 AD to 1000 AD. No wonder it was the dark ages, there's no evidence anyone was gaming!
