Roman Children's Games

Salvete omnes,


This is a double feature: It includes descriptions of games that Roman children used to play (under "Ancient Games & Activities"), as well as children's games which are Roman-themed (under "Online Games"). Some of these were also enjoyed often by adults all across Roman territories.


Ancient Games & Activities:

1. Swordfights with wooden swords (or sticks)


2. Catch mice and harness them to miniature chariots (My favorite!)


3. Play with figurines (like action-figures)


4. Rota: A Classic Game of Ancient Rome (Like Tic-Tac-Toe)


5. Tesserae (Dice)


6. Latrunculi (Strategy game like chess or checkers)


7. Mancala


Online Games

A collection of Roman-themed online games and quizzes




This is just a start to games kids (& adults) can play, but I wish you lots of fun!


Valete optime.


Ti. Cassius Atellus

Chronicler of Nova Roma
