History of Games 101. I need to learn more about the history of gaming. Ideally getting a solid overview of the continuum of ancient games such as dice, chess and Go, all the way up through present day video games. Please recommend some books for me.

Assume that I am a 30-something white male with degree in Anthropology that has also played lots of video games in my life. I'm primarily interested in a historical overview, although social/cultural implications are also fascinating. Bonus point for books that are available on Kindle.
