Want to play that game of dice from The Mahabharata:  Chausar?  Check out Shakuni for the iPad.  I presume it comes with instructions (but hopefully not with Shakuni’s trick dice)!

Apparently chausar is an intelligence and skill-building game (though technically still gambling) that is mentioned in ancient texts perhaps as far back as the Vedas.

Maybe I should re-think my decision against owning an iPad and get with the times.

    Yes, very good. Shakuni was very cunning. He was strongly influenced by the wrong doings others had done to him over what good they had done for him. One should forget all done bad to him and all he has done good to others. This is the true state of selflessness. Remember this when playing the fun game!

    Hi there! This post couldn’t be written much better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a very good read. Many thanks for sharing!
