Rules to Period Games

There are many period games for which we have rules, or at least are capable of guessing at the rules. The following are the ones I know of, on the Net. Note that these descriptions come from a wide variety of places and people, so the quality of reconstruction and description may vary a bit. I'm pretty comprehensive here, so take these articles with a little caution.
