History of Social Games [Infographic]

Social games aren’t new–they’re just games you play with other people.  Social games began about 5000 years ago.  With some help from the team at Disruptor Beam, we’ve put together a little chart that traces the history of social games from its origins in Ancient Egypt all the way to the present.  I’m using the term social network gamesto distinguish the type of social games (Farmtown, etc.) that are primarily played and distributed via social networks.
