The game was originally recorded by Linnaeus in Lappland in 1732, but is thought by a few scholars once to have been played throughout Sweden. [Given the lack of documentation of this game before Linnaeus' account, I find that opinion difficult to maintain, but it exists nonetheless.] game description for Swords & Shields One player controls the Shields and the other controls the Swords.
