Colonial Americans knew and played board games we’re familiar with today: Checkers, chess and backgammon. These games were quite popular with the Founding Fathers. Historical records indicate that Thomas Jefferson enjoyed playing backgammon and would win or lose several shillings in a session. George Washington owned a beautiful ivory chess set, and on one occasion Mrs. Washington asked her husband what his favorite forms of entertainment were. George replied, "I read, my lady and write, and play chess."
