Activity – Do not eat your candy!!!!

If you are a serf you need to go walk up and down the stairs 3 times. I’m not kidding.

Everyone else find a comfortable spot.

Stair climbing represents harvesting the crops.


The crops are in

The crops are in

  • Everyone gets 10 pennies to represent their crops.

  • For easy accounting, keep the pennies you started with separate from the pennies you get from your vassals.


Time to pay up

Time to pay up

  • Serfs spend some of their time working for their lords, so much of the harvest belongs to him. Each serf needs to pay his lord or knight 8 pennies.


Pay it up

Pay it up

  • Lords and knights owe allegiance and taxes to their lords (the Count and the Duke). Each knight and lord needs to pay 6 pennies for each 8 collected from the serfs.

    For example, if you have 3 serfs under you, you owe your lord 18 pennies.


Now for the king

Now for the king

  • The Count and the Duke still owe the king. For every 6 pieces you collected from your vassal you need to pay the king 4.

  • Serfs owe one penny

  • Knights and Lords owe 2

  • Count and Duke owe 3
