Most of the casino games played today have their roots in Europe, but there are a few that can trace their roots back to Asia. Keno dates back to Ancient China and so does Sic Bo; the name actually translates to “precious dice”. As well as these two, the most popular modern form of Baccarat was developed in Macau. So a gambling party with a Chinese slant is not only sophisticated, but also entirely appropriate. You don’t have to only play Baccarat, Keno and Sic Bo at your party, of course, but having a unified theme linking décor, music and food is a good idea.

If you’re planning on throwing an event for some friends that are paleo, these are some of the best ideas for snacks to keep them happy.
