The game of Hnefatafl began its life in Scandinavia over 1600 years ago. It’s name is often translated to “Kings Table”. The first mentions of the game rules came from botanist and naturalist Carl Linnaeus. Over time, many different rules of the game has been developed. Traditional Hnefatafl is a tactical game, where two players command two Vikings forces. One player’s goal is to maneuver his king to safety, while the other one has to prevent that, and ultimately capture the king. In Hnefatafl The Viking Tales, we decided to diversify the gameplay a bit and add a 4-player mode with different variations presented in the Sagas that bring famous Vikings and even gods to the game!
