I'm reading an article about the history of "the Lord of Misrule". It says that the Lord of Misrule was in charge of arranging
fine and subtle disguisings, masks and mummeries, with playing at cards for counters, nayles and points, in every house, more for pastimes than for gain" during Christmastime.
My dictionaries don't have such words like "nayles", "nayle", or "nayl". And the results from Google don't seem to fit into this context. Does anybody know what "nayles" are?
