  • 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.

I wanted something we could take camping. For those nights when your hunkered down in your tent during a rain storm. This is perfect. Totally portable, strategic and fun for me and my hubby. Love the wood pieces and the two sided game board. Showed up fast and great packaging. Worth every penny.

This is one of the neatest things I’ve ever bought, and the owner of this shop was kind enough to include an extra game! We’re beyond blown away by how beautiful these games are and we’re definitely going to have fun playing these for years to come!
