Northern Games on Wikipedia

I found Wikipedia entries for the two-foot high kick and the blanket toss. Pretty interesting stuff and got me thinking, is there anyone out there that wants to add the other games to Wikipedia? This would a good idea and would also ensure technical and historical accuracy.

More games online

The pages for the Good Woman/Man, head pull, arm pull, one-foot high kick, two-foot high kick, kneel jump and musk-ox wrestling are now available online. There will be more games made available over the next couple of days.
