Which board game is the oldest?

Answer:

Backgammon

Compared to Backgammon, Chess and Chinese Checkers are relatively young. While the exact origins of Chess are unknown, most historians agree that the game originated in India around the 6th century AD. Chinese Checkers was invented in Germany in 1892. Backgammon on the other hand is much older. In 2004, archaeologists discovered a game-board in the ancient city of Shahr-e Sukhteh in Iran resembling the game of Backgammon. The board was dated to around 3000 BC and is believed to be the oldest Backgammon board ever found.
