Did They Find the Rules?

Archeologists have discovered a virtual treasure trove of artifacts in a dig at Burrough Hill in the United Kingdom. This iron age hill fort has been the focus of several digs but recently they unearthed all manner of tools and items. These include hooks, knives, broaches, spears and more. These items seem to have been set in some type of storage pit and the pit filled in with refuse.

Also found was a bone dice, looks like a six sider, and some gaming pieces. These lay with a flute and some other personal items.

Now if they can only find the rules.

Latest word is they've discovered two versions of errata and an early beta, but the main rules themselves have yet to be found.

Hmmm. I wonder if they someone made a game back in the 10000s BC if someone else in the village started picking apart its rules!

Rules lawyers!
