The History of Games: Examine the scope and history of human civilization through this two hour class on historical board games. Did you know that backgammon is one of the oldest games in the world and has been played for over 4,000 years? Do you know where chess originated and the strange path it took through peaceful trade routes and contentious wars to become the world’s most played game? This class will teach you all of that and more!

Can't make it to this session? Labyrinth games will also be presenting workshops at the other DC Public Libraries.
