DIY Rock Tafl Game

DIY Rock Tafl Game

At the moment, we’re often playing tafl games, such as Brandubh, Ard Ri, Tablut and Hnefatafl. Tafl games are a family of Viking strategy board games. These type of games were played before chess became popular during the Middle Ages. The game looks simple but it’s as interesting as chess. Here’s a website with rules of the game Tablut.

DIY Brandubh Game Board

I think about making a Tafl game board out of fabric – here I’ve made a fabric Pachisi board – stone or wood. Here I tried to make a Brandubh game board with a dark gray slate. I drew the lines with a white, chalk-like river rock. The game pieces are small, round, black and white pebbles. And as king piece I used a green pebble. I think the stone game board looks beautiful, but unfortunately the slate is a bit too small.
