HNEFATAFL RULES PDF

Alea evangelii[ edit ] Alea evangelii , which means "game of the gospels", [14] was described, with a drawing, in the 12th-century Corpus Christi College, Oxford manuscript , from Anglo-Saxon England. The manuscript describes the layout of the board as a religious allegory , but it is clear that this was a game in the Tafl family. This is the least documented of the known tafl variants. The small number of pieces means that each of them must often simultaneously defend and attack: it is therefore easy to forget one of these tasks if one focuses too much on the other. As in the great games of Tafl, sacrifices are useful, especially for the defenders, but with only four pieces, it is important not to weaken the king too early in the game.

Players take turns moving their pieces. Each player can move one piece each turn, any number of spaces in any direction but not diagonal. Pieces cannot jump over other pieces. Captured pieces are removed from the board. The king can only be captured if surrounded on all four sides. The attacker attempts to capture the king, while the defender just needs to evade capture long enough for the king to escape. The king can escape by moving off any side of the game board.

After each turn slide one bead to the other side of the turn counter to record the number of turns taken. If the king escapes, then the board is reset, and players switch teams. The original attacker then must be able to escape in fewer turns than the original defender. The player that escapes in fewer turns in the winner. If a king is ever captured unlikely , then players switch teams, and the original defender must capture the king in fewer turns to win a feat which is extremely difficult.

It is definitely recommended that you drink a bunch of mead while playing, preferably from large wooden mugs. It helps you get into the viking mood. However, authentic viking mead was probably more similar to beer, mead recipes are another thing that has been poorly recorded. However, most evidence suggests that viking mead incorporated malt grains as well as honey, and the yeast used was very similar to yeast strains used for ale.

Modern mead tends to be more like wine than anything. Regardless, vikings drank mead, so grab the most authentic mead you can get your hands on, drink it, and enjoy playing Hnefatafl. Add Tip.

Hnefatafl Board - the Viking Board Game

The game is played by two players on a board of 11x11 squares, one player taking control of the king and twelve defenders, the other taking control of twenty-four attackers. The pieces are set out as shown in the diagram. The attackers take the first move. In his turn a player can move a single piece any number of spaces along a row or column; this piece may not jump over nor land on another of either colour. The five marked squares in the centre and corners of the board are special, and only the king may land on them. Other pieces may pass over the central square in the course of their move, as long as they do not land there.
