I have not received a reply. Can you create such a turnaround?
Do you have more details about how it would work technically?

Re: Brandubh 7x7

In Brandubh the king is not captured by surrounding as is the case in Old Hnefatafl, and so the second Attacker's move B4-B2 has no effect. In Brandubh the king is captured from 2 sides, and so the capturing attacker must move to C1 and capture the king against the corner. Many years ago Adam, Tim ...

Re: Brandubh 7x7

Question on corner captures in Brandubh. Below is an example. 1. There is an Attacker on square C1. 2. The King moves B2-B1. 3. A second Attacker moves B4-B2. Does the second Attacker's move, B4-B2, capture the King in Brandubh? The King would be captured in Old Hnefatafl. Thanks, mccluskeyp In you...

Re: tournament

Is it possible to create a tournament on this site to be administered by a person other than Mr Aage Nielsen. In the sense of the new director and judge to determine the regulation, form, playing time, prize and participation fee? My idea is to make a championship league on Hnefaftal, which does no...

Re: rating

how does the rating restate? why does my rating change without having completed a game in that period? why do the ratings in all games differ from those on the front page? The rating parameters were a bit different the first years. Therefore the accurate ratings are found by running through all gam...

Re: General rules

I think adding the corner rule/trying it out on sea tafl is a good idea as it makes sense with the geography of the game, namely open sea. I don't think we should implement this rule in historical hnefatafl for two reasons: Firstly because the game is working so beautifully and is (Finally) in conc...

Re: Championship

Splitting the triathlon. The triathlon tournament 2015 took 148 dage = 5 months to finish. And 5 long months it was with the same group of 14 players where others could not join in after the combined tournament had started. The internet seems not a very suitable place for a complex event like this,...

Re: Tafl in Russia

Amazing!! But I hope that we shall be able to play other more balanced tafl variants in the new tournaments ... First and foremost, we shall continue to spread the word of the Historical Hnefatafl rules in praise of Tablut and Tawlbwrdd. With a very small change the game is well balanced on your fin...
