It is the late Middle Ages (1000-1500 AD). You are a
knight serving a prominent ruler from the Middle Ages. You have been
sent to form an alliance with a wealthy distant kingdom.
To win this King’s favor, you are bringing gifts to present to him,
but beware: his head guard is overly protective. If the guard catches
you in the castle, he will evict you. The first player to get to the
King’s throne and present their gifts wins the game.
You will receive a mission card that tells you what items to
collect as gifts for the king of Agrafor. Included in your gift will
be armor, a well-crafted weapon, a luxury item from the East, and a
work of fine art (a painting, engraving, mosaic or sculpture).
The Chance Cards contain historical facts and information about
the period. Instead of asking rote questions that require players to
memorize a series of facts, the cards tell brief tales that invite
the player into the Middle Ages. As part of the game, players will
meet and travel with prominent figures from these centuries,
including artists, scientists and authors. Players will also
encounter life from this period, from the commonplace food and
shelter of serfs, to the lofty pursuits of kings and popes.
Players will learn about
· Art, Music, and Literature
· Science and Medicine
· Law and Government
· Daily Life
· Trade and Economics
· And more...
Why study the Middle Ages?
The study of history in general is an invaluable tool for
learning about our contemporary world. Many of the skills used to
study history can be applied to the study of the events in our time.
Studying history can also identify the actions that lead to success,
and can help prevent repeating past mistakes.
The events during the Middle Ages had a tremendous bearing on the
development of the Western Hemisphere. Not only was Europe impacted
by these events, but also the histories North and South America were
directly influenced by these centuries. This impact was even felt in
parts of Africa and Asia. All areas of modern life, including
commerce, religion, science and medicine, law and politics were
shaped by the people and events of this period.
Additionally, the settings and activities of this period, from
the gallantry of knighthood to the humility of the monastery, have
been glamorized by the popular arts. There is much interest and
intrigue related to this era, which makes it even more fun to study.
What is the educational format of Medieval Alliance?
The game uses several forms to teach the history of this era, and
it can be used effectively in most any educational environment, from
one based in classical methods even to "unschooling".
First, while the game board is not based on any specific
historical region, it includes many features that typify the
geography of that time period.
Second, the Mission Item Cards each display pictures that are era
specific. We have included fine art that is century specific as a
part of the quest. These images do far more to instill an
appreciation of art (and motivate the talent to produce it) than any
written description can achieve. These images also accomplish the
artists’ desire of communicating what was important to the people of
Finally, the Chance Cards contain historical facts and
information about the period. Instead of asking rote questions that
require students to memorize a series of facts, the cards tell brief
tales that invite the student into the Middle Ages. As part of the
play, students will meet and travel with prominent figures from
these centuries, including artists, scientists and authors. Students
will also encounter life from this period, from the mundane of the
food and shelter of serfs, to the lofty pursuits of kings and popes.
History does not always fit readily into a few sentences on a
Chance Card. It is likely that many students will read one of these
cards and have more questions regarding the subject than before the
game started. However, if this sparks curiosity that leads to
researching the topic more thoroughly, then we consider this
In the past years, board games have become so popular gaining significant prominence in the gaming industry. Many board game themes share a similar or same idea with video games or slots games. But, they are played differently with different tactics and mechanics. Also, many board games now have a digital version so you can play them on your iPad or PC, instead of on an actual tabletop.
Slots Games Based on Classic Board Games
We can offer you suggestions for some casino slots that have been inspired by classic board games, from the period when the digital world was not that developed. Look at these board – inspired slots games and have fun:
- Chess - Many slots use the chess theme, with no progressive jackpot but you can win bonuses. The graphics of these games are chess-based, and you follow the chess rules just like on a real chess board.
- Monopoly – If I had to think of my favorite board game, it would definitely be Monopoly. We are sure that this is the most popular slots game based on a board game, and if you are a slots and board game lover, this would be your perfect combination. Everywhere on the screen are visible monopoly symbols, and you can also win money, but instead of winning monopoly money, on this mobile casino game you can earn real money.
- Battleship – Just another board game that has turned into slots. As the name of the game says, the slots are full of navy symbols and are really fun to play with people who enjoy playing it on the original board game. So, now you can play your favorite board games anytime and anywhere, with your friends, in an online casino, and have fun right from your sofa.
