ones I already have classes written for; some are not really
appropriate for Pennsic, or better as a one-on-one class (mostly the
higher level ones - If you're interested, feel free to schedule with
Kugelach (Jewish Knucklebones for the Overly Dextrous)
Chess for the Lost Non-Beginner (Western Chess 102)
The Royal Game for Common Players (Western Chess 201)
Atlanbaj (Turkish Checkers)
Shogi for Beginners (Japanese Chess)
Xiang-qi for Beginners (Chinese Chess)
Assaulto (a variant of Fox and Geese)
Nine Men's Morris (okay everything else so far has a description in
parens, 9MM is lonely. Tic-Tac-Toe on steroids)
Backgammon for Beginners (Backgammon 101)
It's Not Just Luck (Backgammon 201)
Make Your Own Luck (Backgammon 301)
Byzantine Chess for Beginners
Rota (Tic-Tac-Toe on fewer steroids)
Others usually teach the ones I've not listed, Game of Goose, Fanarona,
card games, Go, Tafl variants, dice games.....I don't plan to teach
more than 2 or three full classes though, so if you want to teach
something on my list above, go ahead and speak up!

nicely shaded area by the Cooper's store. I suggest requesting water
be supplied - I believe it already is for the tents where A&S classes
Maybe the tent won't get flooded out when it rains? :+)
