- Hi ALL!
At the Amethyst Challenge. I gave away a Six carat Citrine, a Six
And the big prize: one 26 carat Green Amethyst.
Of the players, only one had played Nine Men's Morris before.
One of those who'd never played before won the competition and was
awarded the Amethyst
This coming weekend the prize will be a beautiful blue 27 ct.
I'll be teaching the game "Hnefatafl", a Scandinavian siege game that
is a variant of Tafl(meaning 'Table') which was very popular until
being displaced by Chess(Skak-Tafl or "check-table" )
Come learn a game!
Potentially bring home the main prize or one of the "effort" prizes.
Learn the skills needed to win one of the prizes in my up-coming
The Tanzanite Challenge will be presented at Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins
The Ruby Challenge(for a 35 ct Ruby) will be presented at Bhakail's Yule.
Also, Due to a change in Bellringers, I am looking for a home in the
Southern Region for my Grand Challenge.
I've spoken with the folks in Iron Bog about their Investiture and
they'll be getting back to me
I'm also waiting on word from Gryphonwald on their up-coming
"Black Gryphon Inn".
But if your group has an event planned for late January or
February that can accommodate a three hour gaming competition, contact me!
