This game was made to be played by people of all ages. We have anachronistically named it as "Spjor & Skjoldr" which loosely translates to Spears and Shields, a favoured combination of weapons used by early medieval cultures like the Vikings.

This wooden dice game set includes 13 Viking dice & suggested game rules in English and a version using Viking words.The use of Viking words in the context of a game can be a useful educational tool.

Translation of in game terms are below
Spjor - Spears
Skjoldr - Shield
Jarl - Leader
Hird (Pronounced 'Heerth') - Army
Hirthmenn - Soldiers
Thegn - Mature Warrior
Stodva - Halt


To increase game complexity you can add more dice.

The wooden dice are approximately 3cm³ each, 1.5cm x 1.5cm x 1.5cm.


Dice were originally made from the talus of hoofed animals, although it is uncertain where they originated, they have been used since before recorded history.
