As the world slumbers beneath a blanket of snow, do the people of Ard Chreag still toil. On a winters day, they invite you to sit back and relax, share an ale or tale over a game, and revel in the pleasures of days that once were.

Eirik's Glic Challenge and other games @ Snowed Inn
Once again I challenge all to a friendly game of Glic (also known as Pochspiel) at Snowed Inn on January 27th in the Canton of Ard Chreag! The game will take place after feast, and each game is suitable for 4-6 players. There will also be other games available to play, but be sure to bring your own as well. Glic is one of Ard Chreag's (and especially my own) favorites... just ask our ladies about the infamous 7 hour game on a new years eve not long ago.. ;)
Rules to Glic can be found on the games guild website: http://colynethorfinna.tworavens.org/GamesGuild/articles_glic.htm
Citizens of Petra Thule offered me great competition last year, I am really looking forward to playing again! :)
I will be the gatekeeper at Snowed Inn this year, so if there are people who want to learn the game during the day I would be pleased to teach!
If you have any questions, please email me.
