This game, originating in 18th century Europe, is credited to Mozart. This musical game of 'chance' is played when dice are used to create music from pre-composed musical measures. You simply roll the dice and the musical measure with the coordinating number is used to compose a piece of music. This composition 'game' can be played individually or in teams of 2 or more.
