Description:
Shagai refers to the cuboid bone of the ankle of a sheep. The bones are collected and used for traditional games and fortunetelling throughout Central Asia. Such bones have been used throughout history, and are thought to be the first forms of dice. In English language sources, playing with shagai is sometimes called ankle bone shooting.
Shagai games are especially popular during the Mongolian summer holiday of Naadam. In shagai dice, the rolled shagai generally land on one of four sides: horse, camel, sheep or goat. A fifth side, cow, is possible on uneven ground. Mongolians still exchange shagai today as tokens of friendship. The shagai may be kept in a little pouch.
