I'd love to see this product!

So far, all of your suggested games are excellent. I would like to see 
King's Table (Dark Ages), or some variant of that game (Hnefetafl, etc.) 
and perhaps the Royal Game of the Goose (Renaissance). A four-in-a-row 
game styled after the Captain's Mistress would also be nice, but 
probably not well-enough documented to safely fit within 
Medieval-Renaissance (most likely much more recent).

The idea is that they will fit inside the tray of a wooden chest I made as part of a local group project.  The inside of the tray is already painted for tables/backgammon, and the other side has a chess board.

I'm currently considering Nine Man Morris, Fox and Geese, Alquerques, and probably Gluckshaus; are there any others I ought to include?  Any favorites that perhaps I haven't heard of yet?
