This is an exact replica of the Viking game played in A.D. 400, as found in Lapland in 1732. In order to understand the game, we had to go back to where the games Tafl and Hnefatafl were popular in the Viking Homeland of Scandinavia. Over the centuries the game developed and different versions of the board have been found by archaeologists in sites from Ireland to Ukraine. This game is known as a primitive version of today's game of chess as all the pieces have the same movement as the rook.

    our family has enjoyed playing this game however we had to look up some better instructions on line. The product itself is well made and it’s great to be able to store everything in the game board with the lid that opens!
