Two of the most popular Roman board games together at a special price
10 in stock.
Linen board versions of Ludus Latrunculorum (or Latrunculi - the Game of the Little Soldiers) and Nine Men's Morris; both popular with the Romans.
Roman writers regarded Ludus Latrunculorum as a game requiring an understanding of planning and strategy, and it is strange that such an excellent strategy game disappeared after the end of the Roman Empire. Our game includes the rules developed from Classical sources by Dr Ulrich Schaedler of the Swiss Museum of Games. Nine Men's Morris, by contrast, known from the 1st century AD in Roman contexts, and also an excellent, though quite different, strategy game, has survived as one of the most popular historic board games through to the present day.
