Re: Alea Evangelii 19x19

So there are few things which make me doubt Alea Evangelii as a Tafl game: CCC MS 122 was written in the 12th century by an Irish monk referencing a manuscript from over a century earlier written by Dub Innse, Bishop of Bangor, who brought the game back to Ireland from the court of Aethelstan, King ...

Approaching Festivals and Teaching Tafl Games

I am looking for advice from anyone who has previously taught/demonstrated Tafl games at viking/cultural/historical festivals/markets. There is a Viking Festival taking place near me in central Ohio at the end of April and I want to approach them about possibly teaching the game and I am curious abo...

Re: Gaming activity

Access to Tablut T cross 11x11 is opened, so that Tuireann can study its shortcomings. Thanks for giving me access to it. Having completed 3 of my 4 T cross games I see there are a severe lack of viable openings for white to exploit. Or at least none that I can see. Black seems to have an epic adva...

Re: Gaming activity

I'm aware it's been tried but I've never tried it and it's not available. I'm curious what about it does not work.

Re: Gaming activity

Is the Nielsen layout the one used in old hnefatafl 13x13? The 13x13 and 15x15 HH games could both use some additional test games too. I was kind of interested in trying out the 11x11 T cross with tablut rules. I've played a bit of the Lewis cross and my only criticism is that it doesn't have the sa...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

BigWurm91 may be new here on aage's site but he's been playing online longer than I have, first on the late kingstafl and now on PTO, and I consider him every bit as good as his rating now reflects. He and I played(and reviewed) about a dozen games of Tawlbwrdd a week in the month leading up to the ...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Sounds like fun but yeah that would make quite a lot of games. I was thinking maybe each leg of the triathlon could be broken down into groups that changed every leg so that everyone ended up playing everyone throughout the tournament but i imagine that would be quite a lot of work to balance the gr...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Hehe it was a heavily discussed point on PTO that a weak king qualifier would draw a lot of criticism and I'm certain my poor performance in the Copenhagen round won't help. Perhaps it would be better not to mix variant types as there are lots of players like myself who almost exclusively play weak ...

Re: Where to buy the game?

I ordered my History-Craft "The Viking Game" set from NorseAmerica. Quick service. I have no skill at creating things by hand so here are some of the random sets I have found: Cyningstan's shop sells a few different sets including the History-Craft "The Viking Game" set. UK based Worldwide Shipping....
