Dwyle Flunking, and more

by Bernard De Koven on August 22, 2011

You are doubtlessly familiar with the works of Pieter Bruegel, the Elder (1525-1569), and especially his Kinderspeile, in which he massively depicts over 200 children massively engaged in some 80 children’s games.

Today, we are pleased to present, via the virtual collection in the Elliott Avedon Virtual Museum of Games, the annotated painting, currently detailing some 32 of the abovementioned games.

And, for your further historical entertainment, we conclude our historical play probing with a reenactment of the infamous Breughel-depicted 16 century game of Dwyle Flunking, courtesy of those madcap reenactors at the Lewes Arms:
