The First Board Game
Most of all 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 and 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 and 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 and papyrus and 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 variation of materials, including carved knuckle bones, wood, painted stones, and turtle shells.
Board Games Become a Royal Pastime
Board games also became popular among pharaohs in Ancient Egypt. Also, a further look shows 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) and it had become a kind of talisman for the journey of the dead.
PMScreen Shot 2016-10-03 at 1.57.41 PMAncient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of “Fate”. The high element of luck in the game of Senet was strongly tied to this concept. Believing 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 has a grid of 30 squares, arranged in three rows of ten. There are two sets of pawns. 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.
In 1935 Magie sold her patent for The Landlords Game to Parker Brothers, which is now what we know as Monopoly. This game launched Parker Brothers to a massive success was originally rejected by them.
After their success with Monopoly, They went on to produce Risk and Sorry, Trivial Pursuit, and more.
Lizzie Magie sold her original patent of the original game for $500.
