Board Games in Academia V


Alex de Voogt

Poetry and the history of board games

Poetry has been a frequent source for dating games and analyzing their playing rules. A comparison of poetry used for this purpose shows that interpretation and appreciation of this material is complicated. This first discussion of poetry as a general tool for board games research intends to clarify the problems encountered by literary and board games researchers, to discuss the possible sources and results which may be obtained and to encourage further research of this kind.
