Long DescriptionViking Chess, or Hnefatafl ("nef-ah-tah-fel"), is a two-player strategy game with two objectives: the Attackers are trying to capture the King while the Vikings need to get their King to safety. As in many of their historic battles, the Vikings are surrounded and outnumbered. But with cunning and daring moves, these fierce Nordic warriors will live to plunder another day ... unless their opponent outmaneuvers them to capture the King, sending all Vikings to the afterlife in Valhalla. /// Learn to play this ancient game (600 years older than chess!) in a quick and easy demo. /// Available for purchase at Spin Master booth #2727.
