How about stamps showing games? Playing cards, board games, video games, etc... and related items. Outdoor games, too, providing they cannot also be called "sports".

Sweden had a set of six with different board games. I could only find a pic from Delcampe, but can you name all six games by the designs?





France has a set of stamps based on popular videogames:

Arn't we all
I have (not so) fond memories of ending up bankrupt
thousands of times, when I played my elder
siblings at Monopoly.
Perhaps the secret was, they were always the banker.

Mind you, I had a lengendary thumb
and could match all comers at marbles. (Aust sp : "Doogs")

Answer (partly)
Backgammon,
patience,
chess,
dominoes,

Leisure Suit Larry! What a blast from the past. A rather desultory past.

Here is an image of another chess stamp from Hungary: Chess players, printed by photogravure, and issued on April 9, 1950 to publicize the World Chess Championship in Budapest, Scott No. 889. Note that the player on the left is wearing overalls, there is a factory in the left background, and a tractor in the right background. I suppose the propaganda message was that the game of kings is a popular pastime in the workers' paradise.

Interesting observation on the Hungarian,
the artist has the player picking up the piece from the base
that's also unusual.
