Poster: "Ed Hopkins" <Ed.Hopkins@MCI.Com>

I saw the following posting on the Rialto:

>   Over the years, I've been wanting to see a electronic-mail list
> devoted to the subject of Medieval and Renaissance games. Since
> none have appeared, I decided to start one up myself. This is
> not, at this time, an automated list.
>   If you are interested in joining the list, please send mail to
> "mckay_michael@tandem.com". Since this is a manual list, it may
> take several days for you to be added.
>   The topics will be determined by the list membership of course! I
> foresee the following items with relationship to Medieval and
> Renaissance history as the initial topics:
> Board and Card Games - history, game rules and reconstruction,
>     playing tips, construction techniques, where to buy them, etc.
> Field Games (including much of what we would now call sports)
> Games and Society - gambling, religious and legal prohibitions,
>     games used for fortune-telling, etc.
