Bräde or svenskt brädspel ("Swedish Tables") is an elaborate version of the historic recreation verquere that is played in Sweden. Players start with all 15 of their counters on reverse corners of the board, and play around counter-clockwise. Additional points are awarded for a victory whereas one's opponent has counters on the bar. Interest in brädspel experienced a resurgence following the restoration of a 17th-century board from the wreck of the Vasa. Asodio is a recreation the place all items are off the board on the outset and gamers enter either by rolling doubles or an Ace-Deuce combination. Tourne Case is another old French tables recreation and more one of probability than skill.
