Ill throw in a few board games for the period

Chas has already mentioned backgammon

But also you could play chess (the style of men are in a bit of a flux at this period with many very elaborate sets and some more simple ones), Nine Men's Morris was still popular as was Fox and Geese and Draughts (checkers  in the u.s.). The Royal Game of Goose was played for fun and for money. 

If we are doing shameless plugs there is more information on these games at


All best wishes
