The NY State Renaissance Faire features many games of skill. Like most carnivals or fairs, you pay some money, attempt a game and potentially win a prize. The Ren Faire adds their special spin on this concept by offering weapon based games.

Whether it's a basic hammer to test your strength or hurling an ax to test your poise, there is an option for everyone in the Gaming Glenn at The Ren Faire.

You can watch me make a sad attempt at shooting a real bow and arrow. I also discovered how strong I really am when I tested my power with a mighty hammer. The knife might have been to most challenging of all the games but that didn't detract from the fun factor of slinging a knife trying to not only hit a target but making it stick.
