I was wondering what kind of beads etc. to you get when you want to participate in the gambling games. Any advice would be appreciated.

It is my understanding that all types of period items can be used for period gambling games, but I have mostly seen glass viking beads, cast or stamped coins, jewelry (rings, braclets, etc)... I think I even saw an ornate belt buckle once.

I would say the biggest thing is, what you are betting must be acceptable to the others at the table. Also, no real cash.

Period gambling games are a lot of fun, but just like modern gambling games, don't be anything you don;t want to lose.

I have a pouch just for gambling. Unfortunately I'm usually busy when the games are going on. In my pouch are several pewter site tokens (they can be melted and re-cast), a pair of veil pins, some glass beads, and a set of dice.
Maybe we do some gaming at Championships?

Doh.... you just reminded me, I have been meaning to send you an email, but it keeps slipping my mind.

Thanks for responding, now to figure out where to get these treasures? Unfortunately I won't be making it to Pennsic even though we will be in Butler this weekend (Can't justify paying $320 to go for a day).
