How to cheat a dice roll -- and how to spot a cheat. These are a few things I learned at gaming conventions during the 80's (I said late 70's early eighties in the video but then I did the math). When I watched it back I also realized I'd mixed my Latin and Greek and that happens a lot too. Pretty much a video to prove that I'm getting ready for the retirement home. "Alea" is Latin for die, but I'm not sure what the greek would be.
