in our books and games based on the Phaistos Disk
by H. Peter Aleff
A board game from the dawn of time
gives new meanings to play
a famous archaeological puzzle from Bronze Age Crete, and enjoy the reconstruction of the ancient board game it preserves.
It turns out that the pretty pictures in the spiraling sequences of fields on that Disk were not writing signs, as most of its many "translators" had assumed. Those pictures were instead the marks for the fields of a board game which survives today in very similar form as the Game of the Goose.
As you will see in Volume one of the e-book here, this game started out as a simulation for the motions of sun and moon which its pieces re-enacted on the board. The markings on the ancient fields illustrate those wanderings in mythological terms and so give us now a detailed and coherent portrait of the ancient heavens and their gods.
After more than three and a half thousand years, many of the markings on the Goose Game fields still match the meanings of the pictures in the same locations along its ancient track.
For an abbreviated account of these discoveries and more, you can read here the online version of the booklet that comes with a fun-to-play reconstruction and recreation of the ancient board game from that Disk.
This booklet presents some highlights from the interpretation of the signs and describes some of the reasoning for it. It also offers a set of re-created rules for The Game of the Goose and of the Labyrinth.
The mini-history of board games as images and models of the players' worlds describes the evolution of this brand new game through the millennia, and several reviews of Quantum tell you about its unique playing qualities.
set aside for you without obligation from the first limited-edition production run.
The second volume of our e-book The Board Game on the Phaistos Disk is also still in preparation. It will be titled "Solomon's Sky" and will explore some of the additional information about astronomy and religion in the ancient Near East which that old Disk now illustrates and clarifies.
That second Volume will also discuss some intriguing circumstantial evidence for a possible connection with king Solomon's Temple. You find some of this evidence presented in the Labyrinth part of the online booklet for The Game of the Goose and of the Labyrinth, but if you would like to learn more once that sequel is ready, you can sign in for your free e-mail updates of our upcoming releases.
