Ancient Board Games
Have you ever wondered what they did for fun four hundred years ago? What about four thousand years ago? Back before game systems, televisions, or radios, board games ruled the entertainment options. In fact, some of the games we play today came straight from games that have been played for thousands of years! Our Ancient Board Game night will introduce you to some of the most popular games played around the world through the millennia, from mancala to shut-the-box. Sit down with us and roll the dice on games played by Sumerian kings and Chinese emperors on Thursday, October 24th from 2:00-4:00 at the Melrose Library. These games are suitable for 12 and older.
