In case you weren't aware, the 50th year anniversary of the SCA approaches fast! In 2016 there will be a grand celebration and a lot of arts going on. Someone put out a challenge to make 50 things on a theme and present it at the anniversary event. That sounds awesome to me! When I heard about this a few years ago I was knee deep in games research and classes (both learning and teaching) because I love games and I wanted to make a games manual from the middle eastern perspective. I decided then that I was going to generalize for the sake of the challenge to just medieval games, but when possible I am putting a middle eastern spin on them.

|Bag style alquerque. The bag can played on and the pieces and rules can be slipped inside and tied shut when done.|
|Fabric boards have drawstrings all the way around that can be cinched and then tied around the outside with the pieces bag rolled inside.|
|The whole package can be tightly rolled to the size of a small kitten. Teek shows her approval.|
