„Ich habe mich als Ältester der noch kampffähigen Meisterschaftsanwärter entschlossen, den Schachweltmeistertitel provisorisch zu übernehmen. Es ist ungerecht, der jungen Generation ohne fairen Kampf gegen die alten Meister den Titel zu schenken“.

Nothing says 'fun evening in' like shouting "SHIELD WALL!" and sending the other player's wee Vikings to Valhalla. Good times.

Hnefatafl sets are available from the National Museum of Scotland shop and online⚔️shop.nms.ac.uk/collections/to…

Two teams of chess-like pieces carved as Viking warriors stand on a checkerboard cloth. A blue box in the background has a Viking ship carving and the word 'Hnefatafl'.

Spinett-Regal, 1587.

This object combines a spinettino & regal with a surprise. Closed, it is a square coffer with inlays for game boards for nine-men’s-morris, chess & backgammon. When the cover is lifted, the musical instruments are revealed.
