Yesterday we looked at a website about games people played in Roman times. We tried to play one of the games called knucklebones using cubes. Originally the games was played with ankle bones of a sheep or goat. Today on Twitter we looked at our mentions and @fboss told us that he had seen a picture of children playing knucklebones. We found the picture, called “Children at Play” by Peter Brueghel, on Google Images. There are 200 children in the picture, playing over 80 games. The picture was painted in 1560. Some of the games in the picture are still played today.
