Basics of Hnefa-tafl (required for playing).
There are two sides in the original game (hnefa-tafl – king’s table): attacking and defending. The defending side starts in the center of the board, and the attackers in the middle of each of the four edges of the gameboard. The two sides have different goals.
The units in the game are able to move vertically or horizontally for an unlimited number of spaces on the board, with the exception of the “king” who is able to move only two squares, again, vertically or horizontally, per turn. The “eating” of the units takes place when a player in his/her turn moves his own unit so that it traps an opponent’s unit between two units of his/her own. Note that a unit may move to a spot between two of his opponent’s units without being eaten.
