I would put money on Parchesi or Chinese Checkers... A board game that appeared very similar to checkers (called "Draughts" in Great Britain} was discovered in the ruins of the ancient city of Ur in modern day Iraq. This board game dates to about 3000 B.C. Checkers as we know it today has been around since 1400 B.C. In Egypt, a similar game was called Alquerque.

The first games played on a board were made many thousands of years ago; Checkers is an ancient game, for example. The Egyptians, too, had a game played with various pegs in a board (how it is played, we no longer know).

A board game doesn't necessarily need a foldable board like Monopoly to be a board game. Games like Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, and Gold Mine use tiles to build out a dynamic game board, for example.
