  • 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.

This is such a unique gift idea for any history buff or game board enthusiast! Both myself (25, F) and my younger brother (15, M) enjoyed this a lot. The instructions are thorough but not too much to take in. We adjusted to the rules before the end of the first game. Would definitely recommend :)

Fantastic product, Amazing service. I was so happy to see a game board that's hand-made with real products that won't fall apart like you'd find most places. Even just feeling the game mat in your hand is a fantastic experience from the feel of the material to the weight from the sealants. Worth every last penny and more. Thank you neighbors!
