    History Mystery - Solve the Mystery with the Fewest Clues
      United States
    Call me a daydreamer, but Iíve been thinking lots about the boat trip I took last summer on the Missouri River. It was dreamy. ''Missouri,'' by the way, is an Algonquin Indian term meaning ''river of the big canoes.'' Our countryís heritage owes a lot to Native American cultures, including the names of places, foods, inventions, customs, and even many words. I was reminded of this while on the trail of this gameís mystery subject. Do you know who or what it is?

    Mayan Game of Chance
    Maya America - Central
    Games of chance were quite popular in a number of Mesoamerican cultures; the Aztecs' addiction to the game of Patolli is well known. Fra Diego Duran wrote that the stakes they played for sometimes rose so high that the loser lost not only his wealth but his freedom too, selling himself into slavery to pay his debt. (One should keep in mind that Father Duran may have been prejudiced; he fiercely disapproved of Patolli because the players invoked the names of Aztec gods during the game).
