Hello everyone !
Patolli is one of the oldest games played in Mesoamerica and many indigenous peoples.
It is a game of chance, quite similar to our game of goose, which was played with frenzy by all strata of most Mesoamerican societies.
Its name comes from the Nahuatl word which designates beans used for dice.
52 boxes are shown there which correspond to the years of the solar cycle, a number with essential symbolism in Mesoamerica.
The patolli thus appears as a game with fate, in which we look for omens, where we bet to liven up the game.
Good day and good game ;)
