Crown and Anchor is a traditional dice game, originating in the 18th century and played by sailors in the British Royal Navy and in British merchant and fishing fleets. Three of these dice are needed to play the game. Each die is marked with one of six symbols: crown, anchor, diamond, spade, club, and heart. Players place bets on a cloth or board with the six symbols. Payout corresponds to the number of dice showing one or more of the symbols the player bet on. Payout is 1:1 for a single, 2:1 on a double and 3:1 on a triple. If the symbol doesn't come up, the player loses his bet. This item is a single Crown & Anchor die, so you can customize how many you want. Sets of three are recommended.
