Roman ball games and Roman board games. Complete with literary references, ancient artwork, and instructions for playing the games yourself. So let's all sing: Aufer me ad arenam (to the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame").

Wonderful post, stopgap, thanks.

I especially liked the board that spells out Levate dalocu ludere nescis idiota recede (Get up and leave, you don't know this game, quit!)

This is great!
Damm, I've read about these games and never realised they actually were still around. Thanks stopgap!
