Prehistoric Stone Toy or Decision making Device?

Another stone from my site that shows various face profiles, hominid, ape and feline and other prehistoric language elements. But is there a little more to this piece of portable rock art than first meets the eye? The stone has a kind of trigger/lever which can be used to spin the device and a gouged chevron, which presumably was used to indicate direction. The Item could of been used rather like spin the bottle, as a toy or gaming device, or to make decisions about direction of travel or who should go and collect the dinosaur stakes for supper.
