  • 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.

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.

When this product came in the mail I was already excited, but it blew away my expectations. It is a beautifully crafted game. The canvas game mat and the wooden game pieces are better in reality than any picture can show. I'm very excited to gift this game to my brother. Will be purchasing from this artist again!
