Viking board games Tafl (Hnefatafl) and Nine Man Morris Free domestic shipping
This is a two sided board game set that has Hnefatafl (more commonly known as Tafl) on one side, and Nine Man Morris on the other. The board is made from hand colored duck cloth fabric, so no two are the same (the photo shows a typical stain coloring). The images on the boards are hand printed, and given a slightly distressed look. The set comes with all the pieces to play both games, as well as instructions.
Tafl is an ancient Viking board game that was the most played game in Europe prior to the introduction of chess. It is identified in the Viking Sagas as an important element for a warrior to learn and play well in order to become successful. It is also one of a very few games that has an uneven player starting point. The "Swedes" are out numbered two to one by "Muscovites" at the start of the game. It is a very fun, and interesting game, with different strategies for each side.
Nine Man Morris is an ancient game from Rome that is often found on the back of Tafl boards. It is a very fast paced game that has some similarities to checkers.
The board is approximately 11" by 15" and the playing pieces are approximately 3/4" each. The set comes with playing pieces, pieces storage bag, fabric board, rule booklet, and storage tube.

Such high quality product! Easy quick shopping! Reasonable pricing. The details matter and there’s so many details. Looks phenomenal. My husband absolutely loved this gift. Would shop with them again
Received the package quickly and well packaged. The game pieces are very nice and the game board is on a nice cloth and quality printed. Makes a nice easily carried game for traveling. Absolutely love it! ❤
The vinyl is a little stinky, but I love the design! The fact that it can be rolled up and not take up space will be a big plus. I look forward to playing the games.
Ordered this after reading many of the reviews here. We loved it. So portable, easy to understand, and challenging. The mat and pieces are beautiful. 100% recommend to anyone who likes board games or logic or is very competitive!
