Behind the Scenes of the Season 1 Finale

Hey, guys.

Well, it’s finals week, and in the confusion, I missed a detail in the latest episode. Don’t worry, though. That means you get a double feature next week!

In the meantime, here’s a behind the scenes look at the Season 1 Finale.

I apologize for the delay, everyone. But, this week’s episode of The Gamer’s Atlas will have to wait until tomorrow.  I’m beat.

The Oldest Board Game in the World

Board games have been around for centuries. They even predate literacy. Once human beings were able to communicate beyond the basics of conveying elementary needs and movement, board games were developed.

The oldest board game in existence is Senet, a racing game played by Egyptian pharaohs and commoners as early as 3100 BC.  It is a racing game, played with colored sticks as dice.

This game was featured on LOST in the episode “Across the Sea”.

You can play an online version of Senet here.

I just came across the Deviantart account of the artist for Whack a Catgirl!

She does some nice work.  Also, I love the fact that she put her original characters in the game!

Her DA name is RollerGalVal http://rollergalval.deviantart.com/art/Whack-A-Catgirl-62763689
