A quick history of Board Games

A board game is a tabletop game that involves counters or pieces moved or placed on a pre-marked surface or "board", according to a set of rules. Some games are based on pure strategy, but many contain an element of chance; and some are purely chance, with no element of skill. Board games are pre-historic, meaning  board games before we had written language. And the very first game was 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 believed to be 5,000-year-old  in southeast Turkey are the earliest gaming pieces ever found. Board games were primarily played by adults in ancient cultures and with their deep roots in society, were quickly adopted by children. And one of the first games centered towards kids was Hop-Scotch  around 500 BC. Chaturanga is an ancient Indian strategy game developed in the Gupta Empire, India around the 6th century AD.

Soon after, the game was turned into its European variant, Chess, which is the most popular board game on the planet.  Over the time in history across civilizations, humans fascination with board games increased and in the modern times their purpose was deconstructed from just fun tools to learning tools.
