Erik Arneson talks about Board and Card games on his About site. here is an interesting list of the most significant games in the last 200 years. It has Monopoly, it has Scrabble and it also has Hare & Tortoise and the Settlers of Catan!
It names Chutes & Ladders from 1943 – pretty late because the Tamil version 'Paramapadham' is much much older. There is also another list of Honourable mentions below that includes games like Carrom (the most popular game in India).
