Highland Havoc (2021-11-12 - 2021-11-14) Highland Foorde

November approaches, and it's time to prepare for a last bit of merriment before the winter sets in. Mark your calendars for November 12- 14, and join us as we celebrate the end of autumn. The theme for this year is a Martinmas Festival, named after St. Martin of Tours. Among other things, Martin was the patron saint of GEESE, so expect tons of goose-related shenanigans.

The theme of Highland Havoc revolves around geese, and the A&S extravaganza does as well! The staff of Highland Havoc dedicates this year's A&S competitions in memory of Baron Rorik Fredericksson, known as Greygoose.

The 3 general areas include:

  1. Geese: Anything concerning geese, representing geese, honoring geese.
  2. Period Games: Documentation is required (EZ Doc is useful) along with clear instructions on how to play the game. (Cribbage still counts even if it is ever so slightly over the date line.)
  3. General Arts and Sciences: Note: including a toy goose or something similar can move it up into the goose category if you so wish.


  • Best Goose: Mistress Janina and her goslings will evaluate Best Goose. (Lady Babs suggests that bribes may be useful.)
  • Games: Based on presentation, playability, and documentation.
  • General A&S: Evaluation by judges familiar with the field of study, if possible.

Site Restrictions: Highland Havoc will operate in compliance with Society, Kingdom, federal, and local laws and guidelines concerning masking, social distancing, and vaccination and testing requirements.
