Re: New proposal variant for hnefatafl

I'm very glad you think so! It worked out very well for my games too. It added another layer of strategy and options that I enjoyed very much. i hope others try this out so we can get more minds around this variant. Thanks Xerxes for testing this out!

Re: Where to buy the game?

It might be a little pricey if it's an international purchase but www.norseamerica.com sells a nice set. At least concerning the pieces.

Re: New proposal variant for hnefatafl
