This hand crafted board game called Hnefatafl (Tafl) has been played for centuries by the Vikings and Celts, and is often considered their version of chess. A simple game to learn, the main objectives of the players is to surround and capture the King piece for the red piece attackers, or for the white pieces to defend the king and getting it to one of the safe corners of the board. Pieces are captured by "flanking" a piece on two sides. Pieces move like rooks in chess. The set comes with one white King piece, marked with a Celtic knot, 12 other white defending pieces, and 24 red attacking pieces. Also included is an intricately decorated board, a small cloth bag for the pieces, and a set of the traditional rules. Measures approximately 10" by 10".

I ordered this on the Monday night before our Yule celebration (12/20) and got it on Thursday (12/19)! The turnaround time was fantastic! My husband is VERY into Viking culture (his heritage) and has been wanting to try this game for a while. It came in great shape and the directions were very easy to follow. The only complaint we have is that the pieces are a little bit larger than the spaces, so it's difficult to line them up. A bigger board would be preferable. But everything looked beautiful and we love it!

It is a beautiful game. The shipping was very fast. My wife and I will enjoy the winter months challenging each other. Thank you.

Good materials and nice work - not to mention a devilishly difficult game :)
