Tafl Games — favourite board games of the Celts and Vikings — were played for millennia in northern Europe.
This loving iPad rendition of Tafl brings to life seven ancient board layouts: Brandubh, Fidchell, Ard Ri, Tablut, Tawlbwrdd, Hnefatafl and Alea Evangelii. Four layouts are included in the iPhone version: Brandubh, Fidchell, Ard Ri and Tablut.
Whether playing against your iPad, iPhone, or your friends, Tafl will provide you with hours of enjoyable strategic play. The smaller boards afford swift, decisive games, while the larger boards allow lengthier development and immersive game play.
Unlike Chess or Checkers, Tafl is an asymmetrical strategy game. Put simply, the Attacker aims to capture the opponent's King, while the Defender attempts to get the King to a corner square.
Lovers of history will find the historical notes about each board a fascinating journey into the mysterious origins of the Tafl games.
