thats a pretty damn good correlation to them , heh, im not sure i really buy into the theory but they do look very similar,
i was thinking they were used more for like bola games, where you toss the stones and knock other stones out, or some games you throw stones and try
to get next to a post knocking others out, ect ect, theres tons of variation to them and i could see people carving and engraving them and trying to
make them special because im sure they were handed down to kids because people used to bet on them and such,
when i was staying in france , all the older gentleman would play a similar game in the public court yards and bet money, mostly it seemed like
gentlemans bets but the men said some bet crazy. and making design on them would make them act differently than some others making them move or hit
others a differently.
some of the balls they were using had grooves and dots on them as well. and depending on how old they are, the bets could have been for life or duel
to death kind of thing which would mean you really want to make yours special cause if you lose , poof your dead.
