From Marijane to the members of the Icelandic rune-lore collective, and from Stella to Edge without whose dedicated opposition this book would never have been written.

Everything can help to build the rainbow bridge across the void.
First words
Introduction:  In this book the ancient runic letters are taken as oracles, and 'The old English Rune Poem', which accompanied them in an Anglo-Saxo manuscript, is used to illuminate their meaning.

Book description
Runes were used in ancient times by the Germanic and Norse-speaking peoples of northern Europe for inscriptions, magic, and fortune-telling. Now Rune Games introduces the Anglo-Saxon 'Rune Poem' and uses the runic letters as oracles, showing how the runes may be used like the Chinese I Ching for meditation and self-development as well as prophetic divination.

There are eight games, arranged in order of increasing complexity, designed to stimulate the intellect and the imagination, releasing potentials which are hidden from the everyday, non-magical mind. Players can project the possible outcome of particular aspects of their lives, and perceiving the degree to which they create their own fortune, they can take firmer control of their future.
