Elstron Table Games : The Rules of Play

By: Mu Pi Chan

The table games described in this book are based traditional tables games which have been modified to fit into a fantasy world where the inhabitants use a duodecimal numbering system (Base 12), and for whom the hexagon and numbers which are multiples 6 are of fundamental importance. When developing these table games the aim was to produce games with simple rules (easy to learn) which lead to complex outcomes (hard to master). Or to put this another way games which are non-trivial and require skill to play....

The games described in this book originally started life as part of a novel about the fantasy island of Tarron and the hominoid races (Elstron, Assen, Durns, and Jowr) that inhabited it. Within this fantasy novel The College of Arnur, in the Elstron Kingdom of Westron, played a key role in the story. The College of Arnur can best be described as a cross between a monastery and a university, within which the Table Games described in the first four sections of this book played an important role in the development of the students. The Other Games described in the fifth section were not used formally by The College of Arnur, being games more commonly played in the Castles, Halls, Inns, and Taverns of the Elstron Kingdoms of Westron, Stron, and Eastron. The purpose of this book (Volume 1) is to define the rules of the Elstron Table Games. A second book (Volume 2) will describe how these games evolved, including the games they were developed from and the sources used, along with the story of their historical development and cultural importance within the Elstron Kingdoms. The approach taken in this book (Volume 1) to defining the ru...

Bingo!

By: Nicolae Sfetcu, Compiler

A short guide about what is and how to play bingo, the game in United Kingdom, and its major variations. Since its invention in 1934, modern bingo has evolved into multiple variations, with each jurisdiction’s gambling laws regulating how the game is played. There are also nearly unlimited patterns that may be specified for play. Some patterns only require one number to be matched, up to cover-all games which award the jackpot for covering an entire card and certain games award prizes to players for matching no numbers or achieving no pattern. Bingo is often used as an instructional tool in American primary schools and in teaching English as a foreign language in many countries. It became increasingly more popular across the UK with more purpose-built bingo halls. Keno is an important variation of bingo game, often played at modern casinos, and also offered as a game in some state lotteries. Scratchcard is another major variation. The scratchcard is a small token, usually made of cardboard, where one or more areas contain concealed information: they are covered by a substance (usually latex) that cannot be seen through, ...

A Guide to Systematic Readings in the Encyclopaedia Britannica

By: James Baldwin, Ph.D.

The Britannica is a work of reference, and much more: it is a collection of all histories, all biographies, all arts, all litterateurs, and all scientific, professional, and mechanical knowledge; but on account of its comprehensiveness, extending as it does through so many large volumes, it presents such an "embarrassment of riches" that those who consult it fail sometimes to discover all that is suited to their individual needs. It is evident, therefore, that if each reader and patron of this great library can have a guide to point out to him, according to his vocation, the parts that are the most helpful to him, he will be able to systematize his reading or his investigations; and thus, while economizing both time and labor, reach the highest results. The present volume has been prepared for that purpose; and it is believed that, recognizing its helpfulness, the many thousand owners of the Britannica will welcome it as an invaluable addition to their libraries. The plan has been to direct each individual how to draw from this great storehouse of knowledge that which will cover with all desirable completeness the line of work in wh...

Migration: The COMPAS Anthology

By: Bridget Anderson, Editor; Michael Keith, Editor

‘Migration’ is a difficult word. It encompasses multiple interlinked practices, policies and relationships, and it touches people all over the world in myriad ways. This anthology is designed both as a teaching and research resource and as a provocation. Contributions range from personal reflections to succinct overviews, and include poetry and images, posing questions and sharing insights on the multifaceted phenomenon that we call ‘migration’, and linking it to wider patterns of social change....

"The arrogation of powers to keep people ‘in place’ – from historical regimes of serfdom, to contemporary measures to regulate movement, to modern city forms such as the hukou system in China – all define who is and who is not a migrant in relation to regional, national and municipal governance of scarce public goods and ideologies of nation or belonging."...

Pinch Like You Mean It! 101 Ways to Spend Less Money Now

By: Dr. Penny Pincher

I started writing this book on my cell phone on an airplane flight- with my phone in “airplane mode”, of course... While trapped in my seat for a couple hours I started typing a list of ways to spend less money and ended up with 101 tips. After I landed, I added some description, stories, and details to each tip to create a resource to help people spend less money. The tips on saving money in this book can be used to save money, of course, but they can also help you think about money and spending in a different way. Things look different when you have your debt and spending under control. New possibilities open up. You have more freedom and less stress. ...

Buying food at a convenience store is rarely a good idea, but if you do, here is a tip to avoid paying sales tax on food items. Back in college, I would sometimes get a "grinder" burrito at a convenience store, not a bad lunch for about $1.00. If you paid for the burrito before microwaving it, it was considered a grocery item and there was no sales tax. If you microwaved it first and then paid for it, you were charged 6% sales tax since it was considered a prepared food item. Of course, saving 6 cents on a burrito is not going to change your life, but if you can save 6 cents every time you get a burrito, savings can add up over time. The point is not to pay more than you need to pay for anything and hold on to the savings, no matter how small. Wasting money is a bad habit- I try to adopt a "zero-tolerance" policy for wasting money. I suppose some would say I could save even more money by either not buying the burrito, or by buying the burrito somewhere else- you can get a burrito for 79 cents at Taco John's on "Taco Tuesday", or probably make one at home for about 35 cents. It is always a fuzzy line between "needs" and...

Dedication Introduction Disclaimer Tip 1: Avoid sales tax on food Tip 2: Save big at Kohl’s Tip 3: Save 10% on milk Tip 4: Make coffee at home, save over $500 per year Tip 5: Pack lunch instead of eating out Tip 6: Sharpen disposable razor blades Tip 7: Cut cable TV or satellite TV Tip 8: Buy less gas for your car Tip 9: Enjoy cheap- or free- exercise Tip 10: Save when eating out Tip 11: Get pets at the animal shelter for almost free Tip 12: Have less stuff Tip 13: Haircuts at home Tip 14: Walk instead of drive Tip 15: Credit card points Tip 16: Avoid dry cleaning Tip 17: A Subway $5 footlong is a good deal Tip 18: Use energy efficient lighting Tip 19: Improve home insulation Tip 20: Reduce your house payments with a mortgage re-fi Tip 21: Buy used items and save Tip 22: Stop making car payments Tip 23: Avoid recreational shopping Tip 24: Cut small unnecessary purchases Tip 25: Utilize free resources at your library Tip 26: Free or cheap hobbies Tip 27: Get an artificial Christmas tree Tip 28: Plan meals, shop with coupons Tip 29: Drop newspapers and magazines Tip 30: Staycation instead of vacation ...

This volume, compiled at the request of Scott Atkinson on behalf of The Nature Conservancy, includes excerpts from selected historical records and oral history interviews with elder kamaaina of the Kapalilua region of South Kona on the island of Hawaii.
