Thousand Year Game Design Challenge

Here's an interesting contest: design a game that will still be played in a Thousand Years, interesting in a number of ways. For one, they give three examples (Chess, Tag, and card games), but card games played the way we know them are relatively new.

Still, an interesting challenge. Society changes so much over the course of a thousand years, how can you anticipate what's going to be popular?
