History of board games
The first board game that is known in history is the chance game named Senet. There is historical evidence that Senet was played in 3500BC. The game was played by the Egyptian royal family. There is carved evidence on their tombs that document their enjoyment in this game. The exact rules of the game are unknown and debatable today, but it is a fact that Senet was a game of chance. There is historical documentation that states the interest of ordinary people of Egypt in such board games, but it is believed that they couldn’t possibly have the time and resources to be able to enjoy them. During the twentieth century, as a result of the rise of the middle class, ordinary people began to get acquainted with board games, regardless of the fact that they were created Before Christ. Chess become very popular in the post war era, especially in Russia and America.
The return of the board games
In the era of technology, computer and video games, board games were a bit forgotten. Since their glorious days of the ’80s, board games had a steady slide until the recent recession, when the sales of the video games suffered because of their high price. Historically, board games always did well in recession times because they are a cheap onetime investment. The innovation is important and new board games are constantly created, but the classic old-fashioned board games like Monopoly or chess remain the most popular.
