DiGRA 2024

Throughout human history, play activities have happened more likely in some places rather than others, and specifically demarcated areas for gameplay have existed for millennia. Remains of the ball court of the Mesoamerican ballgame pok-ta-pok date back to 1376 BCE (Smith 2020), and from historical records dating back more than a thousand years we know that the Chinese cuju and the Japanese kemari necessitated a dedicated space for play.
