"I bought Celtic Realm sometime during in the 1980s and our family played it every day for years. After the kids grew up, we tossed most of the games but kept Celtic Realm. We have recently rediscovered it, and play after breakfast and dinner every day. We have seduced some of our friends into playing as well !" -L. D.
Celtic Realm is a strategy game played on a board inspired by the ancient game of Ur, with a beautiful Celtic theme. Players move their double-sided checkers along a path on the board by rolling three special dice. The object is to clear a set number of checkers from the board. (The number depends on your desired game duration.) Each space on the board carries a bonus of either an additional move or a new piece added to the board. Players can 'banish' each others' pieces (remove them from play) if they end their move landing on a like-facing piece. The simple, yet elegant rules allow the game to be picked up quickly and enjoyed over and over as players develop their own style of play.
