Thor Stones / God Stones

We play a variety of games at events. Usually we try to keep them period, or at least not mundane (ie: we don't play Monopoly at our events).

Thor Stones / God Stones

Post by Faellon » Tue Dec 12, 2017 7:59 pm

This is a game that I bartered with Thorstein for at Summer Thyng and received at Fall Thyng. It consists of 4 hand carved soapstone dice, each with the numbers 1-4 on them as well as two god symbols.

It can be played similarly to knucklebones or however the "dealer" wants. For example, you can say "highest total in three rolls" or "most ones In a single roll", etc. You also have the god symbols which act as modifiers as you play

And interestingly, when I asked him where he got the dice themselves from, he told me they are actually whisky stones for chilling your beverage

Thanks! Taking the photos with my phone, uploading to Google Photos, then downloading them on my iPad and posting them here does not make for a good photo layout. All because I was lazy and didnt feel like getting up to go to my computer....
