Board games, as we know them today, emerged out of the Victorian Era, however nearly every ancient civilization had their own luck and strategy games. some of the most popular games being played to day such as backgammon, dice, marbles, mahjong, checkers, dominoes and chess were derived from these ancient games. The game of chess dates back to 1500 A.D. where it originated in India before being adopted in Persia. Chess quickly spread across the Muslim world until it finally became popular in Europe. Playing cards were introduced into Europe in the late 15th-century from China, where they had been in use as early as the 9th-century.
