Historical themes are ubiquitous in games. These themes are challenging, educational, and sometimes even problematic. You'll just have to listen to find out why. Historical references Jason brought up include Google Books and the collections in the Library of Congress. Some of today's games include Catan Histories: Settlers of America, Sons of Liberty, d20 Past, Colonial Gothic, and Forgotten Futures, Back to the Future, Homesteaders, Tsuro, and Elementeo. We also hear word from the Board Game Family and share some news about RinCon.
