Bread and games are the necessities of life.
Antique games, therefore, have a long history. The Goose Game (Ganzenbord) was already played in the 16th century. Many varieties have been made after this prototype. The iconography of the goose game often includes an image of a garden. The game is a simple race game in which the movement of the players’ distinctive tokens along a spiral track is determined entirely by the throw of dice. The game is also known as le jeu de l’oie, il gioco dell’oca, het ganzenbord, das Gänse-spiel etc. In course of time, the game developed into a thousand of variant race games.
