View Full Version : Back to Board Games...

I was thinking of the mapping challenge (King Valder-something's Game) while re-reading "The Path of Daggers" (one of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time Books).

There were references to a fictional board game, Sha'rah that sounded interesting, so I threw it google, and found an analysis that compares it to Gwyddbwyll (yeah, you try to pronounce that!)

I found a description here: http://www.celtnet.org.uk/miscellaneous/gwyddbwyll.html which oddly makes it similar to the row games I based my entry on, wiuth the inclusion of a King piece!

Looks like I might have discovered the King's game...there in the history books, all along :)
