Nevada Historical Society presents Gaming as a Microcosm of America History

History Nevada Historical Society presents Gaming as a Microcosm of America History

The material culture of gaming can tell us more than one might think. We look at gaming artifacts and manufacturers of gaming paraphernalia over the years. It will discuss how the process of making gaming pieces reflects American history. For example, what substances were gaming tokens made from, metals, plastic or a combination of the two? Does this reflect what products were most readily available during that era? Where were the pieces being manufactured at what periods of time and why?
