Good day, gamers,

Today i'm doing bit of research about history of board games. I know about few books (Murray, H. J. R. (1978). A History of Board-Games other than Chess; Parlett, David. Oxford History of Board Games) but i have hard time getting it online (as ebook) no libary in Lithuania has it and to buy it its pretty expensive and time of shipping is enourmas.

Anyway, i did try to find any good articles or links to it about history of BG, but i failed. So if there is any good artciles or ebooks, please link it and help me!

Yours,
Alchemik
