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.
