War Games by Fredericks & Mae
Fredericks & Mae is a material anthropology of objects with confused origins. Tools, games and rituals trace arcs though history and across the earth – we follow these arcs: nose to the ground and mouths agape.
Set includes 30 playing pieces, four dice, and an instructional booklet. Backgammon is the oldest known board game, excavations in Iran have shown that a similar game existed there around 3000 BC. Other examples of ancient Backgammon have been found in excavation sites in Egypt, Rome, Turkey and England.
