Hey, get your stinking cursor off my face! I got nukes, you know.

An article from Mental Floss about how board games were included in Viking burial boats, to keep the deceased from being bored in the afterlife.

Interesting. It also includes a link to the scholarly paper from an archaeologist in Britain, here.

Better than a funeral pyre from your games...

Thanks, interesting link! You just inspired my daily poem:

En barko post funebro
mi velos tra tenebro
kaj vikingece ludos
ŝogion en celebro.

Misunderstood, those Vikings...

Pete (wouldn't have figured them for sitting around playing board games in Valhalla)

I hear Diplomacy games were the source of a lot of inter-clan warfare.
