Home-made tafl games

Post by Hagbard » Tue Jun 06, 2017 10:19 am

Christian Busch blogged about a new tafl game of his:

Interestingly, the leather board from The Merry Merchant is decorated with burnt in Viking ships for starting positions of attackers.
On the present site we have sometimes discussed that the tafl game might simulate attackers which arrived by ships, attacking a king's castle.

Thomas Jacquin, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada, made a fine Hnefatafl game, described here:

and also made a Youtube video about the Copenhagen rules:

Also here, the board is decorated with Viking ships for starting positions of attackers.
