Figurines for Table-top Games and Byzantine Chess

And now for something different – byzantine round chess and some figurines for other games like alquerque, nine men morris and fox and geese.

Playing table-top games was a favorite past-time in the middle ages, when they didn’t have computers, or even widespread books. And no  reconstruction of the medieval life would be complete without a little something to past the time

Material : Clay. The boards for the games are made from plywood.

The games are made by Vasil Vasilev and Svetlozara Doksimova.

    Medieval board games – some were similar to games we still know today while others were quite different. Byzantine round chess looks like fun if totally confusing!
