Hnefatafl, or Tafl, was a very popular board game throughout much of Northern Europe during the Dark Ages and beyond. Often described as "Viking Chess", it is a challenging game of strategy for two players. Based on our popular Rune Casting pouch, we've made the game portable to take with you wherever you go!
The 11x11 grid game board is printed on the interior of the leather pouch and includes everything required to play. The rugged leather lace has a loop for easy carrying or hanging on your belt with a rune bead to hold it closed.
37 oak game pieces (24 black, 12 white, 1 red).
Full set of instructions.
The pouch, when laid out flat, measures 10" in diameter, and is approximately 4" high when cinched.
*Each pouch is hand stamped and will vary slightly as is the nature of handmade items.
