To "Roll the Bones" means to cast dice, especially in the reference to the game of craps, as in let's go to the casino and roll the bones tonight. This slang term was first recorded in 1897, but the noun bones has referred to dice since the late 1300s. Chaucer used the term in The Pardoner's Tale; the same Geoffrey Chaucer whom is known as the Father of English Literature. In the 1800's it was common for sailors to carry dice carved from whale bones for the purposes of gambling aboard their tall masted ships.
