Copenhagen Hnefatafl. White wins in 7 moves. How?
Discussions on the Viking board game Hnefatafl
Because it is white's turn the opening is a move that threatens to capture B11 and leaving black without further options. Thus black has to respond by moving a piece to C11, C10 or C9. In any case the way down is open for the king.1. ... ________ B7-C7
2. F11-C11 ___ B10-B3
3. A5-A3 _____ B2-C2
4. E1-B1 _____ B3-B2
5. A3-A2 _____ E3-A3xA2
6. C4-C3 _____ B2-A2
7. B1-C1xC2 __ A2-A1++
Basically, this way it allows the Defender to leave without losing (nor taking) any other piece. I just find it slightly more elegant....
