Just a reminder of the gaming activities that will be held in a few weeks at
Steppes 12th Night.
For those of you who enjoy a cerebral game of strategy and battle, a Hnefatafl
tournament will be held. What is Hnefatafl, you ask? Sometimes called ‘Viking
Chess’, you can read all about how to play here:
And as an added incentive, the winner of the tournament will earn a handmade
Hnefatafl board, crafted by yours truly.
If a baser gaming experience is more to your liking, we will also have an early
period gambling den. In here will be played games of chance such as dice and
knucklebones. This is a gambling den, not just in name only. At each cast of
the bones, actual valuables will be won and lost. So bring your bags full of
trinkets, baubles, gemstones, coins, and a willingness to risk everything at
the altar of Lady Luck.
