A nostalgic look at children’s board games from Israel’s past. Attention drawn to the contrast between the era in which these games were produced and played, and the present day reality of high-tech (often isolating) computer and virtual reality games. Introductory essay focuses on the Amarna game company, which, through its production and marketing of nationalistic, Zionistic and biblical games, not only entertained, but also educated and shaped generations of Israeli youth.
