During her reign, HRM Rustique of Ealdormere was a great patron of the Games Guild. It was she that signed our charter, and it was she that urged us to hold tourneys and it was she who tried to get us into court as much as possible to make the Guild more visible. Thus, the Guild felt that she should receive a token of our appreciation. To show said appreciation it was decided to present her with a tafl board. Brian Goodheart made the board, hand-stitching colour-coded lines so that the board could be used to play any version of tafl, from 7 x 7 to 19 x 19. It took him a half hour to stitch each line. Thorfinna gra'feldr then made a Guild badge in felt and hand stitched it to the edge of the board (picture above). Ragnarr kennari donated the glass playing pieces, Sylard kennari donated the hand made pewter king, and Colyne Stewart included instructions.

When Rustique was given the board (outside of court, after she had stepped down) she was most pleased. It was presented to her by Colyne Stewart, Thorfinna gra'feldr and Wulfgang Donnerfaust.
