A board game originating from Viking times, called Hnefatafl.

Hnefatafl, also known as The Viking Game, The King's Table or simply Tafl, is thought to be of history’s greatest board games. It was at its most popular during the Dark Ages in Northern Europe.

Over the centuries the game developed, and different versions of the board have been found by archaeologists. Hnefatafl was last recorded as being played in Wales in 1587 and in Lapland in 1723.

The game is simple but subtle, yet it is still a game which you can easily get hooked. There are only two types of pieces, plus the warriors. All pieces make the same move.

This Hnefatafl set features a fabric playing board with resin pieces, presented in a gold-foiled burgundy box.
