 Definition A game that involves moving playing pieces around a board. [d] [e]


A site like "Astral City" is not a suitable reference for the history of games. Moreover, the "Royal Game of Ur" is a modern name attached to a board found -- nothing about the (original) rules is known. For a history of early board games more and more precise information is needed. The explanation of "board game" is also too simplistic. --Peter Schmitt 00:47, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Not very good, is it? There's Murray's History of Board Games Other Than Chess, supplementing his History of Chess. More recently there's a book called something like Oxford Guide to Board Games. And, descriptive more than historical, Bell's Board and Table Games from Many Civilizations, 2 volumes. Peter Jackson 10:50, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
