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.
The Landlord’s Game
What? You’ve never heard of The Landlord’s Game? Invented by Lizzie Magie, one of America’s very first board game designers. The game board consisted of a square track and with a 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 and also designed the game to be a practical demonstration of land grabbing and 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 also impoverish tenants.
She knew some people could find the process hard to understand and why this happened and what might be done about it, she thought if Georgist ideas were put into the concrete form of a game, they might also 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 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.
Board Gaming Becomes a Yearly World Wide Event
And now we finally circle back around to one of the biggest catalysts for the recent explosion in board gaming popularity, TableTop. A web series about board games was created by Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day. In each episode, Wil Wheaton plays board games with popular TV and web personalities.
Table Top on Television
TableTop started out as a show on the Geek & Sundry Youtube Channel and quickly and most of all became its most popular series. Due to the original concept for Tabletop was that Wil Wheaton (who’s an avid board gamer) would review board games. However, Wil Wheaton proposed that the best way to show how great games are is to play them. And, based off their success, they nailed it.
As a result, Tabletop had grown to such a point that by the third season, therefore they put up a crowdfunding campaign in an effort to become independent. Their target was $500,000 and they nearly triple that. Therefore they recently announced they would use the extra proceeds to launch a similar web series titled “Titan’s Grave: The Ashes of Vulcan”.
Titan’s Grave, a multi-episode show focused on a single role-playing board game will be featured. Geek & Sundry also has teamed up with Green Ronin Publishing (creators of several RPG titles, including Dragon Age) to create a new game engine that they will be using to power their RPG game.
Table Top Games
TableTop has become a resonating force in the gaming community. They focus on introducing gaming to new people that still have a misguided view of board gaming. A lot of people still think of Monopoly and Risk when they think of board games. TableTop’s popularity has started to shift this. The show caused board games featured to skyrocket in sales. Tsuro was featured on the show, the publisher exhausted all stock reserves. The demand was so high. The game was unavailable in Europe for a period of time while production tried to cope with US demand. Game manufacturers have dubbed this “The Wheaton Effect”.
A popular Youtube channel also has to do with a yearly worldwide event? In 2013 Wil and Felicia held International Tabletop Day and they played several games live with folks from previous episodes. The next year, the event had spiraled into a worldwide celebration and with events in over 80 countries. A lot of game stores from all over the world are announcing various events and promotions for their participation. Because of this, Board gaming has officially become a worldwide holiday.
