Phaistos Disc

The mystery of the Phaistos Disc is a story that sounds like something out of an Indiana Jones movie. Discovered by Italian archaeologist Luigi Pernier in 1908 in the Minoan palace-site of Phaistos, the disc is made of fired clay and contains mysterious symbols that may represent an unknown form of hieroglyphics. It is believed that it was designed sometime in the second millennium BC.

Some scholars believe that the hieroglyphs resemble symbols of Linear A and Linear B, scripts once used in ancient Crete. The only problem? Linear A also eludes decipherment.

Today the disc remains one of the most famous puzzles of archaeology.

What do you guys think about this?? It's almost like that Voynich Manuscript... Languages that can not be deciphered... Is it possible that it isnt a language and it just a bunch of jargon-type writing... like,  "*#IJD(@)##" that and really doesnt mean anything? But then again, it should mean something because why go through the trouble.. And that disc looks way to legit just to be nonsense.

I think it's an ancient board game, like the game of goose, and that the symbols have nothing to do with writing.

It could be a game or just a piece of art by someone who was bored, I do not mean that in a funny way, I actually mean it, many things have been made  out of boredom.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I guess the most interesting part is the fact that the language has not been dicphered.

And that's maybe because it isn't a language at all:

Since the disk was found in the palace, it must have been of a important record or story.If it was a simple game would`nt there be a lot more of these disks found all over the inland?

Maybe it was a game played by kings and queens only?

""This script is called Linear A. It appears to be derived from Minoan hieroglyphic and, like Mesopotamian cuneiform, the signs represent syllables rather than individual sounds. This script, too, remains undeciphered for the most part."" So if they deciphered the other Relic even just a little bit, this one has to be someone more then a game. They made no reference to the other being a game.

The famous Phaistos Disc is a printed, per paragraph, synoptic report of a manager actions from the Phaistos commercial center.
The spirals, for technical reasons, are starting with guide the edge of the disc, from the periphery to the center, and the inscription, again for technical reasons, begins reversely.
The Phaistos Disk, the Column from Abydos, the Rosetta’s Stone, the plate from Egkomi, the plate from the Athena's sanctuary of the Idalion and the plate of Kortona are some written reports or publications current accounting's and regulatory acts for the king's or administration's or municipality's informing.
Followed - according the Common, Eikonogrammaton and Palaiogrammikon, System Writing and Reading of the Ancient Speech - the phonetic value of Disk letters and the text with a proposed reading.
Due to the font of the original text, you can download the reading (2 pages!) in PDF gr. or engl. together with related Alphabet, from SkyDrive:

It could have been a game created for a king.    They would not have mass produced it.  
I think it is interesting and could be any number of things.    My guess is a game.

I would agree. BTW, the only game we know that has an esoteric background looks more or less like it:
