Royal Tourneys

In the Kingdom of Ealdormere's reign of Siegfried and Ragni, there will be a series of Royal Game Tourneys held. At (hopefully) each event, a member of the Games Guild of Ealdormere will host a tourney featuring a different game. Each person playing will receive a point, with the top three players scoring eight, five or three points (depending on where they place). The top player will also receive a prize (a copy of the game featured that day). At the end of the reign, the gentle with the most points over all will win a box crammed full of gaming supplies.

Further Donations

Though these tourneys will only be taking place in Ealdormere, the Games Guild actually has members all over the Known Worlde, and I am most willing and able to accept prize donations from anywhere.

I am donating some of my own games to the cause, and will be making more, but some specific things I am still looking for include:
- period dice (made of wood, bone, antler, glass, etc)
- period looking playing cards
- a chess set

I am also looking for donations of games, game books, and playing pieces for the prize box to be awarded at the end of the reign.

Prizes can be mailed to me (PM me for the address) or, if you will be attending Pennsic, you can drop them off with THL Augustyn who can be found in the Petrea Thule camp.

If you do donate, please label your donations so proper credit will be given to your generosity.

With many thanks,

THLaird Colyne Stewart, Chancellor of Games for Siegfried and Ragni
