An Old Men's Bones set consisted of tiny bones that were poured into a pile. The object of the game was to remove the bones one at a time from the pile without disturbing the other bones in the pile.
Cheaper sets were made from the bones of birds; however, sets constructed from the slivered bones of wyverns, dragons, or other dangerous creatures also existed. Aurora's Emporium promised that none of their sets were made from the bones of sentient humanoids.
