Curious anecdote about Roman Games:
Centuries ago Caligula played games of dice.
When he realized that he had no money, he asked for the tax lists of Gaul and ordered that the wealthiest should be executed. Then he returned to his players, saying: ?You are playing for a few paltry pence, while I have earned some 150 million denars in the meantime."
