'BOERENSCHROOM' DICE

Boerenschroom (translated in English as 'Peasant's fear') is a 19th Century Dutch dice game, played with two special six-sided dice.
One die has the letter 'B' and faces showing one, two and three spots; the other two faces are blank.
The other die has the letter 'S' and faces showing four, five and six spots; the other two faces are blank.
Also needed for play are eight cards, depicting a Lawyer, Clerk, Mayor, Secretary,
Forester, Tax Collector (the Boerenschroom or 'Peasant's Fear') and two Peasants.

Two to eight players pay or receive bets according to the roll of the dice and the cards they hold.

Nowadays the game is hardly ever played anymore.
