As I said in my Day 1 report, seeing the Time of Legends: Joan of Arc display case had me ditching events to check it out in the dealer hall. My friend and I lined up at the appropriate entrance and bee-lined to the Mythic Games booth to sit down for a demo as soon as the hall opened.
Earlier this month, I was at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and was inspired by some of the ancient game pieces they had on display to make my own Hnefatafl game. I posted earlier about how I was making the pieces and sourcing for the board and today I have it all completed. I’m beyond excited about how it all turned out and can’t wait to start playing the game.
As I discussed last week, I was pretty excited about seeing some 8th Century board games. The more I researched into what the games might be, the more intrigued I became and so I decided to make a replica of that Tafl game (I assume it is Tablut) so that I can play it and complete the circle, so to speak.
A new exhibit opened up at our local History Museum titled “Vikings: Beyond the Legend” and it caught my attention so we decided to check it out. While going through a lot of the standard museum artifacts and the kids were busy talking to several of the reenactors the exhibit had, I stumbled upon a set of artifacts that caught my eye.
