Footnote 1: These gentlemen are playing a form of lawn bowls using heavily-weighted octahedra that won't roll very far, which is practical when you live on a mountain and don't want to lose them. Each has a few faces of the opposing color, and the rules of "knock-ocks", as it is called, reward collisions that change the lie of "ocks" already on the field. They are not dice per se, as skilled players can make throws that do not entirely leave the result to chance, and this is encouraged.
