Roman Games

Beyond Chariot Races and Gladiatorial duels and slaughtering Christians for sport, the Romans played a number of board games, including Ludus Latrunculi (sometimes known as Roman Chess), Merels (Nine Mens Morris), Duodecim Scripta, Tic-Tac-Toe (Terni Lapilli) and Tabula (an ancestor of Backgammon).

They also played Knucklebones (Astragalos, Tali & Tropa), Dice games (Tesserae), Marbles and various ball sports.
