I played with a friend 11x11 king unarmed. King shell get in the corner.

Re: Berserk Hnefatafl

Re: World Tafl Federation

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 discussed in the forum...
