The Historic Games Shop - Welcome To Our World of Games

Latest News from The Historic Games Shop

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE We are pleased to say that we're now able to post out items daily from Monday-Friday, c.10am. This means most orders should be with you within a couple of working days of placing your order, if you select First Class delivery.

We've taken the opportunity whilst at home over the summer to be in the workshop making wooden boards for some of the historic games you can find on the website. We've also been researching early chess sets, and hope to have several examples (early and later medieval, and Tudor) on the website from early September.

During the early part of lockdown, we came up with the idea of The Historic Games Club - free, downloadable historic games with printable boards and simple instructions which should enable anyone to play while stuck at home, or with extra time on their hands. We'll be keeping these on the website for the foreseeable future - they're also a great way of trying out for free some of the range of historic games.


We are currently continuing to take and dispatch international orders; using Royal Mail. In the ever-changing current circumstances it is possible there may be delays or changes to the service; and we advise customers to check Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin.
