York Hnefatafl is a name I have given to the version of hnefatafl marketed by the York Archaeological Trust in 1980, which they simply called "hnefatafl". It was designed by David Brown, and features a weaponless king who requires four attackers to capture him, and wins upon reaching the edge of the 11x11 board.

The leaflet is designed for printing on two sides of an A4 sheet. This can then be folded to create a handy A5 leaflet. Feel free to use it as a supplementary rule set for your own board, or hand it out at events and venues where hnefatafl might be played.
