Tablut is a variant of the ancient Viking game
Hnefatafl. It's interesting for a number of
reasons. Hnefatafl is one of the oldest games for
which we have a fairly reliable set of rules (along with Go
and Mancala). It's unusual because the two sides have
different objectives, and unequal forces.
Playing Tablut at Boardspace
The interface lets you rearrange the fleets from the standard position before the play starts. You can
also change four optional rules. First gold, then silver can rearrange, add or remove ships, and alter the rule options. Then, gold can either make his first move, or elect to swap and play silver. This option assures that
the forces will be evenly balanced.
