This wooden dice game set includes 13 Viking dice & suggested game rules in English and a version using Viking words.The use of Viking words in the context of a game can be a useful educational tool.

Spjor - Spears
Skjoldr - Shield
Jarl - Leader
Hird (Pronounced 'Heerth') - Army
Hirthmenn - Soldiers
Thegn - Mature Warrior

Dice were originally made from the talus of hoofed animals, although it is uncertain where they originated, they have been used since before recorded history.
