Re: Copenhagen Hnefatafl

The German page with the shieldwall rule explicitely says "if several taflstones with the same colour stand side by side on the edge of the taflboard and one opposing taflman is placed in front of each of them, it is possible to capture the complete row at once by flanking the opposing taflstones.

Re: World Tafl Federation

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):...

Best Set of Basic Rules?

Mike_and_Ike wrote: What would be a balanced rule set for 11x11? Having a set of handicap rules is nice, but I would like to be able to play a more balanced game when my opponent gets up to speed. I'm not too experienced of a player (maybe ~100-150 games under my belt) so it shouldn't take long for...

Re: Best Set of Basic Rules?

Mike_and_Ike wrote: Hello, everyone. I've played Hnefatafl for a while, and recently constructed my own board.

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. ;-)
