Hnefatafl is an ancient Viking board game where an overwhelming force of raiding attackers clash in battle with the defending king and his loyal force of warriors. The game was highly appreciated by the Vikings who used it to perfect their strategies in war. 

The board is made from leather that can be rolled up or turned into a bag to contain the gaming pieces made from polished stones. The perfect set for wanderers, Viking reenactors and backpackers!
