  • Board games have been played since prehistoric times, passing from person to person and country to country all over the world. This colourful and unique book explains the origins of five of the most long-lasting games, with five fold-out game boards and rules so that you can play the games yourself. To play the games you can use ordinary modern dice and anything you like for counters: buttons or sweets will do!
