Exhibit explores the Asian origins of popular board games

A major exhibit of Asia Society in New York City explores the Asian origins of games - including many of the favorite board games in the English speaking world. The exhibition explores how games have been as important as trade and religion in transmitting cultural ideas. Backgammon, dice games, chess, and of course, go/weiqi are explored among many others.
