Why Games?

June 28, 2007

Last night I watched a program on ABC TV about COMPUTER GAMES, and was horrified by how much they have taken over our “modern world” (more about that program later). I have always had a fascination with “low tech” games, and have been amazed at how universal some games are, being played in somewhat similar forms on different continents, and having changed little over time, either. So, this is my attempt to collect pictures and information about these games, to reassure myself, that we are NOT becoming a world where play is only “virtual” and our children’s heroes and role models are only to be found on a screen.

Hello world!
