Flash of Red 2018-7

This game was among some odds and ends that I inherited from my grandfather. I'm not sure what game it is, but I find all the markings on the dice really interesting!
I like your perspective. We call them 'poker dice' but not sure if that's really what they are called.

Never seen dice like these. They must be part of some cards game. I like the composition in this shot and that wallet to keep the dice in.

Thank you so much to one and all! I just love 365- all these years of not knowing what they were and now I have a plethora of information! Mystery solved. Thanks for all the views, comments and favs- much appreciated!

Lovely BW shot. Nice composition. My grandparents had a game that I think looked like this one. I did not understand their game either.
