For you, that think Board Games are small time. Check this out. Taken from a great article found online:
Most people don’t realize board games are actually pre-historic meaning we had board games before we had written a language. So, what was the very first game?. Dice! A piece that’s essential in most board games. Today was the basis of humanity’s oldest games.
A series of 49 small carved painted stones were found at the 5,000-year-old Başur Höyük burial mound in southeast Turkey. These are the earliest gaming pieces ever found. Similar pieces have been found in Syria and Iraq. They seem to point to board games originating in the Fertile Crescent. The Crescent is comprised of regions around the Nile, Tigris, and Euphrates River in the Middle East. The same region that invented booze, papyrus, breath mints, and calendars, which are also required when planning your game night!
Other early origin dice games were created by painting a single side of flat sticks. These sticks would be tossed in unison and the amounted of painted sides showing, would be your “roll”. Mesopotamian dice were made from a variety of materials. This includes carved knuckle bones, wood, painted stones, and turtle shells.
Board Games Become a Royal Pastime
Board games became popular among pharaohs in Ancient Egypt. Primarily, the game of Senet. The game has been found in predynastic and First Dynasty burials. Senet is featured in several illustrations from Ancient Egyptian tombs. By the time of the New Kingdom in Egypt (1550–1077 BC), it had become a kind of talisman for the journey of the dead.
Ancient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of “Fate”. It’s thought that the high element of luck in the game of Senet was strongly tied to this concept. It was believed a successful player was under the protection of the major gods of the national pantheon: Ra, Thoth, and sometimes Osiris. Consequently, Senet boards were often placed in the grave alongside other useful objects for the dangerous journey through the afterlife. The game is even referred to in Chapter XVII of the Book of the Dead.
As far as gameplay, there is some debate. The Senet board itself is a grid of 30 squares, arranged in three rows of ten. There are two sets of pawns (at least five of each and, in some sets, more, as well as shorter games with fewer). Historians have made educated guesses for the actual rules of gameplay for Senet, which have been adopted by different companies which make sets for sale today.
What? You’ve never heard of The Landlord’s Game? It was invented by Lizzie Magie She was one of America’s very first board game designers. The game board consists of a square track. There was row of properties around the outside that players could buy. The game board had four railroads, two utilities, a jail, and a corner named “Labor Upon Mother Earth Produces Wages,” which earned players $100 each time they passed it. Sound familiar?
Magie had invented and patented The Landlord’s Game in 1904. They designed the game to be a practical demonstration of land grabbing with all its usual outcomes and consequences. She based the game on the economic principles of Georgism, a system proposed by Henry George, with the object of demonstrating how rents enrich property owners and impoverish tenants.
She knows some people might find it hard to understand why this happens and what they might do about it and thought if Georgist ideas were put into the concrete form of a game. They might be easier to demonstrate. Magie also hoped that when played by children the game would provoke their natural suspicion of unfairness and that they might carry this awareness into adulthood.
In 1935 Magie sold her patent for The Landlords Game to Parker Brothers, which is now what we know as Monopoly. This game, which launched Parker Brothers into a massive success, was originally rejected by them.
After their success with Monopoly, They went on to produce Risk, Sorry, Trivial Pursuit, and more.
Lizzie Magie sold her original patent of the original game for $500.
