The Evolution Of Board Games To Game Boards
Modern Day Definition:
Board Game (noun:) A board game is a game that involves counters or pieces moved or placed on a pre-marked surface or “board”, according to a set of rules. Did you know that Gaming has always been a form of family entertainment, and long before the invention of home computers and video game consoles?
Board games have been played for thousands of years, especially throughout the 20th century. The oldest board game to be found thus far is “The Royal Game of Ur,” which was discovered in 1926 by Sir Leonard Woolley in royal tombs, in what is now Iraq. As we travel back more than 2500 B.C.E. in the ruins of the city-state of Ur, we find this game in what once housed Abraham. Imagine that this game may have been played by the people whose stories are told in the Bible.
In today’s growing technology, many traditional games like Poker and Candyland can be played online or via apps.
Although computerized games can be fun and useful, it’s still nice to play an actual game board or board game where the dice is shook, the cards are turned, and the “Pin Pong” ball is dropped.
