If you live in or are near the Toronto area this spring, I might recommend visiting the Museum of Inuit Art near the harbour front. On their blog they are discussing an upcoming exhibit on the Art of Play which will include traditional Arctic gaming and also some non-Inuit exhibits, including modern board games such as Fleet.
I managed to see the exhibit on ancient Chinese gaming in the ROM last year and it was fantastic. I'll definitely be catching this one... and taking pictures, too, if they'll let me!
