Rhine river history game intructions+you tube



We had a need for a custom made, geomorphic river game mat for a Roman Seas scenario (The Roman Rhine River Fleet). This mat, when overlapped onto other river mats, is designed will make one long game mat, with the shorelines lining up fairly closely (within a quarter inch) with each mat. The mat measured 72 inches long by 45 inches wide with the water area airbrushed and with wakes/waves, etc., being hand painted onto the game mat. The final color of the water is a Green-Blue, which a number of customers have stated looks much more like water than our usual Sea Blue felt.

The Rhine River is the largest river in Europe covering 1,320km of Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland. Many people rely on the Rhine River for fishing, irrigation and leisure and this is why I am going to talk about the Rhine River.
Location
The Rhine River starts in the North Sea which separates England and the east coast of the Netherlands and then follows through the middle of the Netherlands. After the river departs the Netherlands it goes through the east side of Germany. It then goes to the border of France and follows that border of France and Germany for 200kms and finally ends up in Switzerland. The Rhine River flows through six countries including Liechtenstein and Austria. It is very long and it travels east.
The glacier, a huge iceberg which keeps the river running, is located northeast across the mountains from the town of Andermatt in the Canton. The Rhine River begins as a tumultuous Alpine stream churning through deep gorges, and although the river’s flow is moderate sometimes as it passes through the lake of Constance Bodensee, the river remains a torrent westward to Basel.
History
The Rhine River is home to many castles which princes onced ruled. The castles are made out of bricks, stone and lime stone, this makes them strong and sustainable for winter. The Rhine River has many legends and one of these occurs downstream from Frankfurt where the river is squeezed into its narrowest and deepest. The mighty slate rock Lorelei rises out of the river and in the 19th century, reefs and rapids made it extremely dangerous for ships to pass this point. The legend tells us, that a siren called "Lorelei" bewitched the hearts of the sailors and when they looked up to the rock, their boat crashed and sank and many lives were lost. Today buoys are used to mark the reefs and rocks and are used to navigate this part of the Rhine River.
Characteristics
The Rhine River is 1, 312 kilometres long and it has no waterfalls along it. The Rhine also had a major flood when 30 tonnes of chemicals washed into the Rhine flooding the river banks with deadly fluid that killed sheep, plants and even the river itself. The river tuned red with chemicals and dead fish.
The Rhine River freezes every March, April and May during winter, which is when fishermen go out of business. The Rhine River is not affected by tides because it meets the sea in only one place; the North Sea. The largest boat that could the cross Rhine is half the size of the Queen Mary.
Wildlife
The Rhine River has large amounts of salmon because they were the first species of fish that came back after the chemical disaster. Throughout the whole year people are allowed to fish but not many do because some fish still might be infected. The main animals that live near the river are sheep.
Recreation
The Rhine is also used for swimming, fishing, and tourism, site seeing and boating. The Rhine has many festivals but the most important is The Rhine in Flames, this takes place on the first of May. People light torches and illuminate the scenery of the Rhine and its wonders.

Transport
The Rhine River is a major transport route around Europe, transporting goods and raw materials by ship. It has been a major transport route since the Romans. The Rhine also can deliver meat, water and cattle. The Rhine is the busiest river in Europe and 30% of the boats which travel along it are delivering goods of some sort.
Importance
The Rhine River is very important for sustaining life for fish, animals and vineyards. Also, the Rhine is part of a UNESCO world heritage site called Romantic Rhine. Also, the Rhine is useful for attracting tourists for cruises, jobs and accommodation.
The Rhine River is populated with so much tuna and salmon that is used to feed the villagers, they could not survive without it. If the Rhine was not there the princes would not have built their castles next to it for protection and these castles are one of the biggest tourist attractions the Rhine has to offer.
Water Quality/ Problems
Many years ago, the Rhine River was considered the most polluted river in Europe. In 1986 the river was severely polluted by a chemical factory fire in Switzerland. Within ten days the pollution had travelled the length of the Rhine and into the North Sea.
After the chemical spill the Rhine Action Program was developed and adopted by all the countries bordering the Rhine. Currently, the program has stopped pollution by 20%

Conclusion

The importance of the Rhine River is vital for many things such as wildlife, leisure, tourism, transport, history and for many jobs like fishing. This is why the Rhine River is suitable for everybody and will hopefully be enjoyed by many future generations.
