Re: World Tafl Federation

Sorry to hear that. I think you should add yourself to the list of those who would make a good chair/vice-chair. In the past there have been long periods with kind of a troika - chairman Tim, vice chairman Adam and the webadmin, and it has been a very fruitful collaboration. When themes could be dis...

Re: World Tafl Federation

Copied from the small forum: 2018-12-04 22:32:36 Adam: Speaking as Adam: Hello tafl community. I want to put an idea out there for folks to think about. The Tafl Federation facebook page has been woefully inoperative for a long time now. It does still serve as a signpost to this site of course, but ...

Re: Icelandic Sagas

Yule is approaching fast in a month. 1941 and 1945 Frans G. Bengtsson wrote two books, "Røde Orm". They have been translated into English, "The Long Ships". In the novels is a narrative of a Yule celebration at the residence of king Harald Bluetooth. I have the Danish version only, and the fighting ...

Re: Tafl in Denmark

November 2018 I brought the tafl game to the Nordic Game Day, but unfortunately there seemed to be little interest for the classic board game, as the guests concentrated only on "modern board game" style games.

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

- Or also two from Round 2: Round 1 is roughly half of the players, with the lower ratings. Two winners from each group go to Round 2. Round 2 is rest of the players plus winners from Round 1. Two winners from each group go to the Final. Right now 26 players registered for the 2018 tournament. Abou...

Re: 15x15 tafl

Was Historical Hnefatafl played on board size 15x15? We have tested Hist. Hnef. on the 15x15 board and found that it works. Hist. Hnef. rules are scalable and probably function on any board from size 9x9 and upwards (plus on 7x7 with a couple of adjustments). The Hist. Hnef. 15x15 has, however, not...

Re: Re writing the rules a bit

Thank you for this formulation! It is uploaded to the Rules section. Just a comment about point 8: If a player cannot move, he lost. About repetition, were the software perfect, it would detect the Fetlar repetition and make the game a draw. Alas this automatic feature is not implemented, so the pla...
