Brandub is the version of hnefatafl popular with the Irish. A king tries to escape to one of the four corner squares of a board of seven rows of seven squares. He has four faithful defenders to help him. Against them are eight attackers, who have to try to capture the king.

This is a colour print-and-play, though the instructions tell how a black and white printer can be used. The game prints onto standard A4 or US Letter sized paper and card, which can be laminated or glued to thicker backing card for durability. The PDF includes a copy of the Brandub leaflet available elsewhere on this site.
