Re: World Tafl Federation

I suggest that all who support this Hnefatafl society send an email to crust alias Millar and inform about their email address or other contact information. A meeting place like this one in virtual space is efficient, but it's not sufficient in the long run to only know each other's identities as a ...

Re: Copenhagen Hnefatafl

Inspired from our Fetlar tournament these days, I have second thoughts about the Copenhagen edge & throne. Maybe there's not a "zombie" problem here: http://aagenielsen.dk/kongepaakant.png because the king can be forced into the open like this and captured (happened several times in the tournament):...

Hi fellow (Hnefa)tafl enthusiasts, I'd love to be an active member for WTF. I also like it being international, since the vikings were pretty international for their time. At the moment there aren't that many Tafl playing vikings left on the entire globe. ;-)
