Game: Tilting At Windwheels
(Detail from Brueghel's Painting)


Tilting At Windwheels

Perhaps this game is what is left from the time when knights fought in a joust. Or perhaps this game had something to do with the expression "tilting at windmills".

How The Game Is Played

In the game however, each player holds a long stick with a windwheel at the end. As the wheel turns, each player charges forward toward another player, attempting to stop an opponentís wheel from spinning, while still keeping their own wheel turning. Players can not use anything to accomplish this except the windwheel.

For safety's sake, note that the sticks are long!
