Promising an “immersive tabletop experience,” you will be able to experience the diverse cultures of several early civilizations through eight legendary tabletop games.
With easy how-to-play instructions complete with historical trivia for each game, you will be challenged to master Hnefatafl against Vikings in 900 A.D., teleport back thousands of years to 6,500 BCE to play Sumeria’s The Royal Game of Ur and more.
“Entertainment’s been an essential element of human culture since the dawn of time, with the first known board game, The Royal Game of Ur, dating back to 4,600 years ago!” explains ROTU Entertainment CEO Jason Parks. “Ancient Board Games aims to open a time capsule and reintroduce titles like The Royal Game of Ur and others from cultures past to the modern audience.”
Ancient Board Games will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
