The Historic Games Collection

By: Amy Ellsworth

Also in the spirit of Penn’s Year of Games, we interviewed Penn Museum Registrar Chrisso Boulis about the historic games collection. The beautifully crafted paper prints are the predecessors to the games (that require essentially no skill) like Candyland and Chutes and Ladders that we know so well. In the video Chrisso talks a bit about their provenience and historical context.
