Viking Jomswikiger Game

Viking Jomswikiger Game

Hey kids, we’re back in the land of the Vikings! Joel’s favourite time period, I think he is part Viking - his middle name is "Bjorn" and his family used to live in Denmark so it would explain a lot! This time we’re exploring a traditional game played in settlements and camps. It’s a game of patience, skill and involves bit of tracking and stalking.
 
It’s called Jomswikinger – bet you can’t say that out loud ten times in a row!
 
Roughly translated it means “Blind Viking chest touch smash game”. Do we have your attention yet?  Read on ....
