Ludi Megalenses MMDCCLXVII (2767) AUC (Nova Roma)/Roman Children's Games
Roman Children's Games
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)
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!
