Looking on the "guestbook" of this site for the first time ever, and what do I find: A public Hnefatafl board in the city center of my old home town!

Article is in Swedish, but nice image with the city councilor (mayor) playing the game.

Wow - I'm glad to see Tomas Alexandersson finished his hnefatafl set - it looks great, although it must be hard to tell the warriors apart if they are all the same colour...

I was in Karlskoga this summer, and I took the opportunity to check out the public Hnefatafl board. The game is right in the center of the town, and any one can borrow the game pieces for free in the Tourist Information, right next to the game board. So if anyone visits Karlskoga, just ask in the tourist info office, and they will show you were the game is. Regrettably I did not get a chance to play but I made a couple of photos of the board game and pieces. Aage, feel free to add the pictures to the photo section of the site, perhaps also with a mention where you can borrow the game pieces.

Edit: I can not seem to embed the pictures correctly - here is a link to the dropbox folder, it also contains two pictures of my new Tablut board:
