Agonistic games are one of the most emblematic social and cultural manifestations of human civilization. Prisoner's bar, is one of these games. Subtracting from this ancestral game, a playful pedagogical genealogy in the exercise of power as a strategy to discipline the body is the objective of the study of this article. A genealogical methodology and an approach from critical theory allows us to review, how the game of the prisoner's bar (or base) has aroused the approval of educators and learners for several centuries, accepted with the object of an unspeakable disciplinary domination over bodies. Analyzing the results, prisoner's bar underlies the first strategy game of civilization. It is conceived, as well as the point of origin from which started other collaboration-opposition games that have transformed into sports. In conclusion, this study must be able to transfer to the present and favor a new ludic and critical pedagogy.
