Abstract

The Game of the Goose traces its roots to ancient Greece, and the feats of Theseus, who crosses the galleries of the labyrinth in search of self-knowledge and triumph. This game has been played in Europe since the 16th century. In the 19th century it conquered the philhellenic circles and the edition of the time symbolises the liberation struggle of the Greeks in 1821. The board of the game is a copy of the one philhellenes used to play in the 19th century. The pawns of the game are small busts of Lord Byron in four colours.
