NEF

An variation of an ancient viking game called Hnefatafl  (nef-a-ta-full) 
Instead of an 11x11 board this one uses a 9x9 board with a reduced amount of pieces. There are 5 King spaces which only the King can enter these areas. 

RULES AND OBJECTIVES:

  • The outer army consists of 4 Berserkers and 16 Valkyries.

  • The inner army consists of 4 Berserkers and 8 Valkyries.

  • Players attempt to surround enemy pieces to kill them.

  • Players can pass between two enemies without being removed.

  • Repeating sequences of moves are not allowed. If the same position occurs three times, with the same player to move, he must vary his attack.

  • Friendly units count towards blocking friendly units.

  • If the player without a King has 3 pieces or less , he gains the ability to surround the king on only two sides.  

WIN CONDITION:
