Venue: Fetlar, Shetland, Scotland.

The Hnefatafl World Champsionships held at Fetlar are back! After a hiatus of some years, the live tournament that inspired many others is running once again, this year as a memorial to its late founder, Peter Kelly.

The format and rules of the tournament have not changed since previous years. Using the Fetlar Hnefatafl rules, the games use the quick-play format, with moves hurried along to the sound of a gong.

More information is available at the Fetlar web site.
