This Looks Like Fun
Uncle Chestnut's Table Gype
In his autobiography G.K.C. mentions "the well-known and widespread national game of Gype".
Specifically, Chesterton mentions, "I myself cut out and coloured pieces of cardboard of mysterious and significant shapes, the instruments of Table Gype; a game for the little ones."
Almost 100 years later, Eternal Revolution has published Table Gype as an abstract strategy game with a random element.
If you have this game I'd love a review.
Maybe a Gype Tournament at the Chesterton Conference. with muffins as a prize for the winners
