Eskalation, Eskalationsspirale und Eskalationsdominanz sind Begriffe, die immer wieder zur Bewertung des Kriegs Russlands gegen die Ukraine benutzt werden. Ich habe die Entwicklung zum Krieg und im Krieg aus diesem Blickwinkel beschrieben.

We were all pretty pleased with our discovery day. We also learnt to play Hnefatafl- a Viking game which is a little like chess.

More information about the glass gaming pieces:…

The rules of the game are unknown. It’s suggested it may have been a four-player game similar to ludo. Read more:…

From the British Iron Age, some 2000 years ago, a unique set of 24 glass gaming pieces with spiral motif. Discovered in the richly-furnished grave of an important man, during gas works in Welwyn Garden City in 1965. British Museum. 📷 my own.

Backgammon set created using real preserved flowers and ferns. [by Redditor u/nukulele145]


Senet was a game for two players. The ancient Egyptian rules have not survived, however various educated guesses have been made as to how it was played, with the aim of the game to get from one end of the board to the other. See this link for more info:…

Here’s a closer look at the small ivory ‘travel-sized’ set.


Unfortunately the developer gives no clues about his sources. I have seen playable versions of very old games multiple times in museum brochures and the like which were pure fantasy and not source-based. I assume it's the same here. And I think it is very debatable if this is the right way to communicate with layman.

I didn't know that. Thanks for informing me. Wikipedia has a Senet page and says the rules are only conjecture and probably changed over time.

Ancient Egyptian ‘Senet’ is one of the world’s earliest known board games, dating to around 3100 BC. Tutankhamun must have enjoyed a game of senet as four gameboards were found in his tomb, including these two sets, c. 1336-1327 BC. Egyptian Museum, Cairo. 📷 my own

@AlisonFisk A lovely excuse to remember a detour to Uig a few years ago. Don't think anyone knows *precisely* where they were found, but thought to be in the dunes somewhere around here. Stunning location, even on a grey day.

This is wrong. There is a #chess variant for four players mentioned in #medieval #Indian sources but it is not the original design. Chess has ever been a two players game. #ChessHistory #GamesHistory #HistoryOfGames
