The “King’s Board”

Winter is coming and i know how some people get when they have to stay inside, so here is a game to entertain yourself with.

Hneftafl, meaning “King’s Game or Board”, is a Viking game that was played during the long Norse winters. The “King” is in the middle and the pieces surrounding him are his defenders. There goal is to get the King to safety (apparently to save the royal bloodline). The ones on the outskirts of the board are the attackers. They are trying to kill the King.

Fun and full of strategy, this game for two would become great intertainment for the long winter comming. Check it out of my Etsy page at etsy.com/shop/fairemaidenstrinkets.
