Unto the List does Gwynydd of Culloden send hearty greetings:

I have been asked to organise some medieval gambling games for an upcoming
Tavern event in my Barony.  What the Stewart wants specifically are games
which are : "quickish, easyish and you can wager large summs of gold coins

Obviously, Tablero (all queries about it's history not withstanding!) is
high on my list, and I am considering the Game of the Goose as well, if I
can get my lady to make me a large calico board for it.  I have considered
and (regretfully) rejected Spoil Five because it takes too much learning and
Gluckhaus is out because I found it totally boring.

Can anyone on the list make any other useful suggestions - preferably with
rules or pointers to useful websites.
