Board Game Studies 2016: Call for Papers

The Call for Papers for the BGS 2016 in Nuremberg (April 13 to 16, 2016) is online! You will find the file at the homepage of the German Games Archive:

The Team of the German Games Archive Nuremberg is looking forward to read your proposals.

Toys and Games in Ancient Greece and Rome

The exhibition "Veni, Vidi, Ludique" is currently being developed at the University of Fribourg by Véronique Dasen and Ulrich Schädler to successively present the results of the latest research on games and toys in Roman antiquity in three Swiss museums.
From May 2014 until December 2015 each museum will develop different aspects of the sources and artifacts. The 3 exhibitions  share the same common title, but have distinct subtitles according to its specialty:
- Nyon, Roman Museum: "The game of life" (general synthesis), May 24 - October 31, 2014
- La Tour-de-Peilz, Swiss Museum of Games: "Playing with antiquity" (the use of antiquity in modern games), October 10, 2014 - April 19, 2015
- Vallon, Roman Museum: "The die is cast" (on typology, rules and practice of board games), March 14, 2015 - February 21, 2016.
The website will be updated permanently.
