One of history's greatest board games, Hnefatafl, which translates to "King's Table," has been played for more than 1,600 years -- far longer than chess. Simple and easy to play for ages 8 and up, yet fun for all ages. This set is for fans of chess, backgammon, and even checkers. Makes a great gift for that person who loves board games.
Two ways to win: either the attackers (24 soldiers) capture the king, or the king (helped by his 12 soldiers) escapes to one of the corners.
Comes nicely boxed with 37 resin playing pieces, each about 1.25" high pieces made in England out of a crushed stone and resin compound, and a printed linen board about 11" square.
