  • 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.

Shipped and arrived very quickly. Quality seems very good, we're absolutely pleased with this! There's something in the design of this that just feels "ancient". As much as the runes are simply decorative, they, along with all the other imagery, the game board being made from duck cloth, and the wooden pieces just make the entire experience playing this game so much fun. My daughter loves it! We opened and played literally the moment we walked in the door after picking it up. The tube it's shipped in is a great idea! Allows for simple storage with no chance of folds or creases on the game board. Overall, top notch!

Wow! The material quality is so simple and yet so sturdy and beautiful! I love the way it’s been made to look old and worn! It adds a lot to my character’s street Cred!😆

**Update and Edit at the end** There is a lot to like here. It arrived quickly. The board is stained to make it look aged, the graphics are clear, the pieces are consistent and do not snag the fabric board. I was even surprised by extra pieces, instructions for 2 additional versions of 'Tafl', and a cool store sticker! However 1½ negative thoughts. The storage bag for the pieces has a weak draw string that does not hold well. The game came smelling heavily of varnish. Both minor points, and neither take away from my overall happiness. **Update** I was responded to almost immediately about my post. The customer service was wonderful and he worked out replacement pieces with me, and they are great. They arrived without the issue of the originals. I received a new storage bag too! I'll be making a new order soon!
