Just for fun: Ancient Board Games

My family enjoys board games and this holiday break was no exception. It’s a fun way to interact, laugh and relax. But Hasbro didn’t invent the concept. Here’s an article that shows this kind of interaction has been around for a long time. Some well-preserved boards were found in Gath and a few in neighboring areas as well. Did Goliath partake in such diversions? One can only wonder.

Humanity has been pursuing entertainment and leisure for millennia. Despite different cultures, our Biblical ancestors might not be so unlike us as we imagine.

What is your favorite game?

 

And I commend joy, for man has no good thing under the sun but to eat and drink and be joyful, for this will go with him in his toil through the days of his life that God has given him under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:15
