Pastimes and Paradigms: Games We Play from Cornell's Division of Rare & Manuscript Collections. Fascinating (if overly alliterative) collection of an incredible array of antique and contemporary boardgames and related materials. Hey, hey, hey, it's fun to play! (via Monkeyfilter)

And the opening illustration is from one of John Wallis's games. John is an ancestor of mine, back from the turn of the nineteenth century. I had been designing games for seven years and running a games-publishing company for two years before I learned of his existence. Looks like this stuff is hereditary.
