Played since the 14th century, Fox and Geese is a game for two players where one controls a gaggle of geese chasing a fox, while the other moves the fox to catch the geese.
Fox and Geese became popular in Britain in the Medieval period, probably having evolved from earlier northern European chase games, and remained popular with the Tudors. In the seventeenth century new rules to the game were introduced making it popular during the English Civil War; while more militarily-oriented games evolving from Fox and Geese appeared during the Napoleonic Wars of the eighteenth century. This version of the game is suitable for Medieval, Tudor and Civil War periods.
Includes counters, linen cloth board and full rules. Not suitable for young children.
