Anglo Saxon Games

Dice games and board games, or "Taefl", were extremely popular in Anglo Saxon times. On our Anglo Saxon WOW day, we played many different Anglo Saxon games.  'Fox and Geese' is a bit like Draughts where the fox eats the geese by jumping over them.  'Nine Men Morris' involves putting counters in a board three in row to defeat your opponent, a bit like Noughts and Crosses!
