Pluck the Owl (1550-1620)
The name of the game means ‘pluck the owl’. It involved throwing three dice, identifying the place that corresponded to the throw on either the inner or the outer oval and then carrying out the written instructions. ‘T’ means tira that is the instruction to take the number of quattrini (‘Q’) indicated; ‘P’ means paga that is the instruction to pay out the number of quattrini indicated. A throw of three sixes takes all.
