    Post 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

    Heh, life imitating art that was imitating life.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.
