Ancient Rome Inventive Games - Roman Ball and Boardgames for Kids and Teachers Illustration

Roman Ball and Boardgames

The ancient Romans probably invented more games that any other ancient civilization. Those they did not invent themselves, they discovered in other civilizations, renamed them, and pretended they had always played these games as well. Games they both invented and copied include Tic-Tac-Toe, Nine Men Morris, Knucklebones (jacks), Snakes and Ladders, Hoops, Twelve Lines, Five in a row (Roman checkers), and games of chance with balls and dice. Flash games have been removed.
