Submission + - Brief History of Social Games (radoff.com)

Tarinth writes: Social games (such as Farmville, etc.) are hardly new--because games have been part of recorded history for thousands of years. An infographic has integrated many of the key games from history (starting with Egypt's Senet game from 3100BC) to present, showing major milestones along the way such as play-by-mail, Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering. Today's social games phenomena, which might better be better called "social network games" is the confluence of several trends ranging from asynchronous gameplay, social play and virtual economies--all of which are shown within the infographic.
