Review: Games Ancient & Oriental & How to Play Them

User Review  - Goodreads

Fascinating book on ancient games. I've seen a few ancient african games, and some ancient Egyptian Senat games, but this is a total compendium. The one I am looking forward to reading about is the Roman game called Tau, or "Robbers". Really happy to have found this! Read full review
