Which of these games was once banned by the Catholic Church?
Hide and Seek
The Catholic church didn’t approve of a lot of things back in the days. One such thing was Backgammon, which they banned during the sixteenth century. They ordered all boards to be burned, just like numerous books that they deemed unholy. 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.
Answer: The correct answer is Backgammon
