  • Handmade

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.

The actual game board feels just like described, that solid, strong linen finish and is really nice. It was a gift and the receiver was thrilled, the game pieces are nicely polished and just add to the aesthetic of the game. Thank you so much, definitely recommend!

This is VERY well made and feels quite sturdy (the fabric is sealed with a waxy substance.) My son, a huge fan of the Viking age, was thrilled! It definitely matched the description. There is natural color variation across the board, which was noted, and gives the whole thing character. As a heads up, this is a natural product and as such, we had to let it air out overnight. Not a problem at all, and honestly added to the charm for us. Overall, 5 stars is perfect for this game. Kudos to the maker!
