Great Hall Games


Great Hall Games

Full Description


We started in 1998 as a shoppe named Great Hall Games & Distractions at Texas Renaissance Faires. Hence the name harkening back to days of olde. The Great Halls in European castles were places where people gathered to talk, play games, eat, or be entertained. We were vendors at several Renaissance Faires in central Texas for 5 years (1998-2002).

Although we have been away from the Renaissance Faires for many years, we still enjoy offering traditional and historically based games. We like to carry games in which players can touch the game pieces, hear the clicking or tapping sounds as pieces are moved, or view the the artistic beauty of a game. We also want to offer situations where one can see the sweat on a brow, a gleam in the eyes, a smirk or tweak of a grin, a nervous tick, or even drumming fingers. Things which you can’t really experience through on-line gaming!
