Viking bone dice & dice games

Dice games were very popular in Viking & Medieval times, as well as Hnefatafl and chess. They make great gifts and we regularly have lots in stock!

This Viking version of Liar Dice called "Meier" uses two dice and a shaker which keeps the roll concealed. Meier can be played by any number of players, each of which has 6 lives. You must roll higher than the previous player and then declare your score. Doubles score highest, but the highest score of all is a 'Meier' 2/1. Each round continues until a player accuses the previous player of lying. If the player that was challenged was lying then they lose a life, otherwise it's the accuser who loses a life! Play continues until only one player has lives remaining. Meier is a very fast and fun game, great at parties!
