Last year, Irving Finkel published a collection of articles from the 1990 colloquium on board games at the British Museum. That’s a long time to wait between a colloquium and its collection.

The collection is chock full of great authors on the subject of games: Finkel, Edgar Pusch, R.C. Bell, and many others. Topics include everything from ancient to near-modern, many types of ancient game from every part of the world, and articles that cover both the games and their origins.

The Bryn Mawr Classical Review gives it a good once-over for us.
