What is Tablut?
Tablut is a variation of an ancient and mysterious board game, called hnefatafl or tafl. Although tafl was first played hundreds of years ago by the Vikings, many civilizations throughout history have played variations of the game; nonetheless, all versions share common characteristics.
Even though the tafl games predate chess by centuries their principles are very similar. Two players compete on a square game board; one player controls the kingâ€™s army, the other, the invading army. The goal is simple: the king must be safely moved to a corner space on the board in order to escape the invasion. On the other hand, the invading army must capture the king by surrounding him on four sides.
The game pieces are moved vertically or horizontally across the game board, similar to the rook in chess. A piece is captured when it is surrounded by enemy pieces on two apposing sides.
