Which of these games was once banned by the Catholic Church?

Answer:

Backgammon

The Catholic church didn’t approve of many things back in the days. One such thing was Backgammon, which they banned during the sixteenth century by giving orders for all boards to be burned. Luckily, people managed to save the game from destruction by playing in secrecy. This is also the time when foldable backgammon boards were invented. Backgammon enthusiasts started making backgammon boards that resembled books so that the church could not find them. The design was actually quite good, and has remained in use even today.
