This version of hnefatafl was formulated by the Ealdfaeder re-enactment group. Ealdfaeder specialise in 7th-century Anglo-Saxon activities, and they also sponsor the English National Hnefatafl Championships at Sutton Hoo.

The version of hnefatafl they play among themselves uses a 9x9 board, on which the king must reach a marked corner square. The defenders are laid out in the form of a square at the beginning of the game.
