Virtual Fortune Telling

Fortune Telling games are often played after the New Year’s meal. Knucklebone fortune telling is a tradition and superstition in Mongolian culture. While some people believe it and some don’t, everyone is welcome to try. Mongolians use animal bones to tell their fortunes, usually a sheep or goat’s wrist bones. The naturally uneven shape of the bones allow for many interpretations of fate. 

How to have your fortunes told by the knucklebones:

  1. Hold the bones in both palms.
  2. Bring it close and whisper your question into the bones.
  3. Throw the bones!
  4. The reader will tell your fortune based on the positions the bones land in.
