Board Games and Strategy Games
Abstract strategy games are probably the oldest and most widespread form of
entertainment known to humankind. Proof of that are the myriad ancient game boards
and game pieces found by archeologists all over the globe. There is no doubt about
the fact that those ancient games will be preserved. Modern abstract strategy games,
on the other hand, may not be as fortunate. Dozens of such games are published every
year only to be forgotten almost immediately in many cases.
