My son is enjoying the set and it looks well made. I may be old school but for $100 I expected it to come in a game box, not loosed in a brown packing box. I was surprised and disappointed.
Excellent quality. Arrived faster than thought it would get here. Have been playing extensively since it arrived. While we didn't need the instructions, it does come with a poster board type page with very detailed instruction on playing the game. For those who have never played this game before don't let that deter you from getting this board game and learning it. It is definitely more challenging that chess. On youtube there are a few videos of this game which I'll provide. look this video up on youtube to watch actual tournament: Hnefatafl – Fight of the century: Adam Bartley vs. Johan-Sebastian Christiansen. Watch this video to learn how to play the game. Bjorn Andreas does a great explaining the game: Hnefatafl - Board Game of the Vikings. Another video to watch that gives very good details on the game from its history to how to play the game by The Raven's Table: Hnefatafl - How to play & history of the game.
Excellent quality board and pieces.
The entire game looks wonderful! It is intended as a gift, and I am positive it will be adored. Thank you so much!
I like the quality and the design of the board and the pieces. We have played a gew games so far. Everything is great, the only thing I'd recommend is adding a pouch or container to hold the game pieces. No big deal, I can get my own, but I would have paid the extra costs to keep it secure and have something matching the board design.
My sons and I did a little more research on the internet for clarity on the rules that accompany the set for gameplay. The construction and durability of the set itself is fantastic. Overall, we are thrilled with the purchase, and really enjoy playing the game.
My grand daughters and I play board games together. When I unpacked the Tafl set, they were fascinated. We had a blast playing! I also got to teach a little history lesson, so it was really fun for me.
Great shipping time! Great set! It’s good enough to become a conversation piece in the family room, so I plan to leave it out.
