History of Games
Games date back to prehistoric times. Games began with 2 main purposes in mind, as decoration and to help pass time. With beginnings that were simplistic and pieces that were made of natural objects, games evolved over time. In ancient Egypt, there was even a game that resembled today's version of chess.
Whether simple or complicated, most games stand the test of time. People are loyal to their favorite games and often pass their enjoyment of them on to their descendants. For example, a parent may teach their child to play Monopoly. Twenty-five years later, that child may teach their own children the game. And so it continues down the line. Whether we are talking about Hide and Seek, Checkers, Monopoly, Hopscotch or the amazing strategy game of Chess, people love games.
Maybe you've seen them in the park and wondered what all the deep thought was about. Or maybe you have been sitting at that table yourself in deep thought, with the words...checkmate...on the tip of your tongue.
