Gambling games from the 1500s

16 Jun

I never really thought of what things like gambling would have been like 500 years ago. From what I’ve found thus far, it appears they just had decorated sheets of paper they would lay out and play on top of- much like a board game today but much less sturdy..making it all the more impressive that these games survived all those years of pubs and dice!Via Giochidelloca
