Hello there! Although not a Viking myself I can recommend Viking Chester as a good group, very active in and around the City. Here they are stirring up trouble at the Midwinter celebrations in the city surrounded by numerous other groups/mops. https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/v/t1.0-...

I have used air drying clay for making board game pieces and it works okay for that. I did stick them in the oven at a low heat to make sure they were really dry. Unfortunately the issue is when they get wet again in the rain they start to soften and the terracotta colour comes off on everything. I ...

The same word was also applied to a privy, but the connection between the two things is not clear. Maybe it was an early version of the Americanism "bathroom", which does not mean a room with a bath - simply a coy way of saying toilet without actually mentioning it. Or indeed Water Closet (WC), the...

My name is Chris Baglin and I am the chair of the curiously named Samhain Welsh Medieval Society, we are having our AGM on the 22nd of this month. That's November, or Samhain if you will. If you are North Wales/Marches based we would be interested in hearing from you, why not get in touch here or PM...
Hello, folks Games is what I does. Or at least one of the things I do, branching out now. Yes Morris (3 men and 9 men) is suitable and there are some others, for a Saxon such as yourself I would recommend Fox and Geese (Halatafl mentioned in the Icelandic sagas). There are two good makers I have bou...

Looking forward to it, Tom. Hope it's as good as last year!
And lo! The leader of those men of the North, the mighty warriors who defeated the foe at Cattraeth, held aloft his mighty sword and cried "This is my blade, the bane of the Gododdin, renter of the Danes, whose edge shall never dull, whose hilt shall never fail, and whose shall hence forth be known ...
@ Clarenceboy Still haven't finished the shove groat board, had a baby since we last spoke but I have bought a slate floor tile from Topps (£6). Not overly polished and gives good travel, as you can see from this test film http://youtu.be/FiZajNwLmnM just needs some lines scored and a backstop. Job ...

I've never managed to find anything to support the claims of Kubb's medieval origins. Yes, it does bear a passing resemblence to Kayles but I suspect that a lot of the claims are marketing dope. I can't find any references to it beyond the present era, and I can't find a credible source that puts it...
So far I have designs for: 3, 5, 6, 7 or 9 man's Morris Quirkat Fox and Geese Fox and hounds Tafl, English, Irish, Scottish or Welsh variants Tables (backgammon) All your games are very cerebral. How about an action game? I'm hoping to make a shove-groat board before the end of the month (our first...
