A broomstick with all the bristles broken off at the end. It was a sword, a ninja staff, a magic stave, a lance, a machine gun, etc.

BESOM

British TV is a great source for unusual (to us) words. We heard one today, on New Tricks - besom (pronounced biː.zəm).

From the context this was clearly not besom as in a broom, one with a bundle of twigs tied to a shaft. One sometimes used in Wiccan rituals to cleanse a space.

Nor did it have anything to do with curling, that bizarre sport featuring big heavy slabs, ice, and brooms.

Nope, this was used in a Scottish and Northern English sense, where a besom is a troublesome woman. The word has lost some of its sting - it used to mean an immoral woman; now per The Scotsman, it's more lighthearted and refers to somebody with a bit of an attitude.

It goes back to Old English, where besma meant a bundle of twigs (used as a broom or a flail). Cognates in various Germanic languages. But not a common word. The transference from broom to witch to woman more generally seems clear.

Fun Fact: A besom pocket is one made by cutting a slit in the fabric of clothing, rather than sewn on.

Drei Magier Spiele did always hold an interest for me as they usually come up with neat ideas for dexterity / family games. Lets make a stop there and check out the new dexterity games Die geheimnisvolle Sternschnuppe and Hexenhochhaus.

--- Drei Magier Spiele --- 11-31
MHL: check out

There's any number of Drei Magier Spiele recent release that I'm going to have a look for. The boys (and the parents) love them!

As in several other children’s games from Drei Magier Spiele, magnets are employed to complicate the movement. Only one side of each figure is attracted to the broom. In order to use the broom, the players will have to discover and remember which side of their figure is attracted to it.
