a girl humbly submits - per Master Sandman's request:

Gorean Book Games:


Girl Catch:
This is a popular game played in a variety of ways on Gor. It can be informal or very formal. In the basic game, a slave girl is hooded and belled. She is then let loose for hooded men to seek and capture. It is forbidden for the girl to stand still for a certain interval, commonly a few Ihn. She is under the control of a referee who uses a switch to encourage her to move and to mark her position. Slaves try to hone their evasive skills in this game and some girls get quite skilled at it. In another form of the game, it requires one hundred men and one hundred women. The object is to capture as many women as possible and place them into your Girl Pit while protecting your own women. In these large games, free women often play.

ball and bat
A game, akin to Earth's 'keep-away', consisting of two 2-man teams. It is played with a wooden bat and wooden ball. Not for the weak.

"Perhaps the most serious incident of the contests had occurred in one of the games of bat and ball; in this contest there are two men on each side, and the object is to keep the ball out of the hands of the other team; no one man may hold the ball for more than the referee's count of twenty; he may, however, throw it into the air, provided it is thrown over his head, and catch it again himself; the ball may be thrown to a partner, or struck to him with the bat; the bat, of course, drives the ball with incredible force; the bats are of heavy wood, rather broad, and the ball, about two inches in diameter, is also of wood, and extremely hard; this is something like a game of “keep away” with two men in the middle. I was pleased that I was not involved in the play. Shortly after the first “knock off”, in which the ball is served to the enemy, Gorm, who was Ivar's partner, was struck cold with the ball, it driven from the opponent's bat; this, I gathered, is a common trick; it is very difficult to intercept or protect oneself from a ball struck at one with great speed from a short distance; it looked quite bad for Ivar at this point, until one of his opponents, fortunately, broke his leg, it coming into violent contact with Ivar's bat. This contest was called a draw. Ivar then asked me to be his partner. I declined. “It is all right,” said Ivar, “even the bravest of men may decline a contest of bat-and-ball.” I acceded to his judgment. There are various forms of ball game enjoyed by the men of Torvaldsland; some use bats, or paddles; in the winter, one such game, quite popular, is played, men running and slipping about, on ice; whether there is any remote connection between this game and ice hockey."
Marauders of Gor - page 140

Slave Bean Race
A common race of slave girls in which frees gamble on the outcome. In this race, slave girls are lined up on all fours, and when the signal is given, must push a bean with only her nose. The first girl across the finish line is the winner.

"I stopped for a moment to watch an amusing race. Several slave girls are aligned, on all fours, poised, their heads down. Then, carefully, a line of beans, one to a girl, is placed before them. She must then, on all fours, push the bean before her, touching it only with her nose. The finish line was a few yards away. "Go!" I heard. "The crowd cheered on its favorites. On this sport, as well as on several others, small bets were placed. Sometimes a new slave, one who has recently been a haughty, arrogant free woman, is used in such a race. Such things, aside from their amusing, and fitting, aspects, some thought to be useful in accommodating her to her new reality, that of the female slave. In them she learns something more of the range of activities that may be required of her." — Magicians of Gor, pages 38-39.

Game of Favors
Many southern cities, most notably Port Kar, during the five days of the Twelfth Passage Hand, hold a celebration called simply Carnival. During this celebration it is often customary to garb oneself in outlandish costumes or masks and attend various masquerade fetes and feasts, much like the Mardi Gras of New Orleans and the Carnival celebrations of the Caribbean on Earth. As common with festivals, many games are played during this time. One such game is played by the free women is a game of favors.
In this game played by free women during Carnival, each woman is given ten scarves and must run about asking for the men to accept her favor; the goal to be the first to get rid of the scarves and run back. This game permits free women, in a socially acceptable manner, to expose their sexual needs to a small extent and make advances to men whom they may fancy.

Greased Wineskin Balancing Game

A rather jovial game in which the object is to balance on a wineskin filled with wine and which has been greased.

"I saw some fellows gathered about a filled, greased wineskin. There was mach laughter. I went over to watch. He who manages to balance on it for a given time, usually an Ehn, wins both the skin and its contents. One pays a tarsk bit for the chance to compete. It is extremely difficult, incidentally, to balance on such an object, not only became of the slickness of the skin, heavily coated with grease, but even more so because of its rotundity and unpredictable movements, the wine surging within it. "Ai!" cried a fellow flailing about and then spilling from its surface. There was much laughter. "Who is next?" called the owner of the skin. This sort of thing is a sport common at peasant festivals, incidentally, though there, of course, usually far from a city, within the circle of the palisade, the competition is free, the skin and wine being donated by one fellow or another, usually as his gift to the festival to which all in one way or another contribute, for example, by the donation of produce, meat or firewood. At such festivals there are often various games, and contests and prizes." — Magicians of Gor, page 37.

Meat Catch

In this game, slave girls are knelt on the ground, hands tied behind their backs. Then, bits of meat are tossed to them, the girls must then catch the meat i their mouths. Again this is a contest in which their masters, of course, earn the points, and much betting is made on the outcome.

"I saw a line of five slave girls, kneeling, abreast, their hands tied behind their backs. Bits of meat were thrown to them, one after the other, A catch scored two points for the master. A missed piece might be sought by any of the girls, scrambling about, on their bellies. She who managed to obtain it received one point for her master. The girls were encouraged from the sidelines, not only by their masters but by the crowd as well, some of whom placed bets on the outcome." — Magicians of Gor, page 37.

Stones
A guessing game in which one must guess how many "stones" the other holds in his hand. This game often goes beyond the simple game, but has been known to play a role in business transactions.

"Stones! Guess stones!" called a fellow. "Who will play stones?"
This is a guessing game, in which a certain number of a given number of "stones," usually from two to five, is held in the hand and the opponent is to guess the number. There are many variations of "Stones," but usually one receives one point for a correct guess. If one guesses successfully, one may guess again. If one does not guess successfully, one holds the "stones" and the opponent takes his turn. The game is usually set at a given number of points, usually fifty. Whereas the "stones" are often tiny pebbles, they may be any small object. Sometime beads are used, sometimes even gems. Intricately carved and painted game boxes carefully wrought "stones" are available for the affluent enthusiast. The game, as it is played on Gor, is not an idle pastime. Psychological subtleties, and strategies, are involved. Estates have sometimes changed hands as a result of "stones." Similarly, certain individuals are recognized as champions of the game. In certain cities, tournaments are held. — Magicians of Gor, page 35.

Bone Gambling or Dice
A wagering game of the Innuit. In this game, bones are carved in the shapes of animals, such as a bosk or tabuk. Each player takes a turn dropping these tiny bones; the one whose bone remain upright is the winner. If no bone remains upright, then another bone is thrown. If both players drop a bone which remains upright, they must again drop another bone each. The game continues until either one player has a bone remaining upright, or until a player is cleaned out of bones.

"Each player, in turn, drops a bone, one of several in his supply. The bone Imnak had dropped was carved in the shape of a small tabuk. Each of the bones is carved to resemble an animal, such as an arctic gant, a northern bosk, a lart, a tabuk or sleen, and so on. The bone which remains upright is the winner. If both bones do not remain upright there is no winner on that throw. Similarly, if both bones should remain upright, they are dropped again. A bone which does not remain upright, if its opposing bone does remain upright, is placed in the stock of him whose bone remained upright. The game is finished when one of the two players is cleaned out of bones."

Cat's Cradle
A game of using string to form a sort of cradle, transferring from one to another to form different patterns upon transfer. The "loser" is the one who cannot form the string into a cradle, or loses control of the string

"Elsewhere two girls, sitting cross-legged, were playing a cat's-cradle game, matching one another's intricate patterns with the twine. There were skillful. This game is popular in the north, particularly in the villages. It is also played frequently in Torvaldsland." — Hunters of Gor, page 115.
