2000 years ago...
No, it's not a mistake, more than 2000 years ago the boys and girls of
ancient Greece and Rome played a game using bones - throwing and bouncing
them in village squares and in their own homes. We know this because
some ancient paintings on marble were discovered in a city called Resina
which date back more than 2000 years, showing kids playing this game.
This ancient pastime known as "tabas" has been
kept alive throughout the centuries and if you ask your parents or
grandparents we are sure they will tell you about games that they played
with sticks or pebbles.
