History of Games
Games date back to prehistoric times. Games began with 2 main purposes in mind, as Decorative and to help pass time. With beginnings that were simplistic and pieces that were natural, games evolved over time. In ancient Egypt, there was even a game that resembled todays version of chess. If you are interested in the history of games, there are many books available on the subject.
Whether simple or complicated, most games stand the test of time. From nursery rhymes, to board games to television shows, people are loyal to their favorite games and often pass their enjoyment of them on to their descendants. For example, a parent may buy real estate and then teach their child to play Monopoly. Twenty five years later, that child may teach their own child the game. And so it continues down the line. Whether we are talking about hide and seek , checkers, Monopoly, hopscotch or the over 2 decades long television show...The Price is Right, people love games.
