Games: Ancient and others

Looking on-line I came across a video of someone playing the Royal Game of Ur at the British Museum. Interested I decided to get my own copy but this was not so easy so I decided to make my own. This was the start of an interest which now includes several games.

Each game board is made of plywood for strength and has a drawer to hold all the pieces and the rules. Some of the boards are hand coloured with acrylic paints and then coated with varnish.
