Halatafl is an ancient game rooted in Viking heritage. Many of the more common board games played today, such as checkers and chess, are related to Halatafl, making it not only an important part of Nordic culture but also a key piece in the history of games.
This is the perfect game to play at a family gathering or at a weekend in the cabin. Halatafl is completely non-violent and encourages strategic thinking. This is a seemingly simple game; enjoyable by even the youngest players, but it has a deceptive layer of complexity underneath to keep even experts engaged.
