I will be more than happy to update that part of the MOC website with links
and book listing for such things as soon as they are sent to me.
As an aside, I was finally able to take the entire family to an sca event
here locally in Seattle and there was a wonderful gentleman with a case
filled with portable children's games. It was a marvel! My kids were
completely occupied for about 2 hours playing cards!
We ended up going to Target and getting the 'water proof' Uno cards. They

> Hello all,

> Many medieval adult active 'games'?could be reclassified for children.

> Another example is bubble catching. The idea is one person blows the

> Let me know.
