About This Activity

Sure, early Marylanders didn’t have Minecraft and Pokémon, but they did have plenty of other games. Whether sitting around with friends in a tavern over a board game, or breaking a sweat with an intense sport, or casually tossing a ball around, you and your children now have the chance to experience fun the colonial way. As a gathering place for socializing, taverns were a popular place to play games we might be familiar with: chess, cards, checkers, and an early version of ‘Connect Four.’ We will also teach participants the rules to board games that are now largely extinct, like fox and geese, shut the box, and teetotum. You are also invited to get outside and try your hand at precursors to modern sports. Trap ball will have your kids breaking a sweat and having fun, nine pins will test their precision, and quoits will encourage a healthy spirit of sportsmanlike competition.
