Last year the 44-page book An Introduction to Hnefatafl replaced the 20-page booklet of the same name that used to be sold on this site.  Looking through my stock cupboard this evening I found five copies of the old booklet, forgotten and unloved.  So I've decided to put them in the shop and see if they can find a new home.

The old booklet contained much of the content of the new book, mainly lacking a number of photographs and the section on strategy.  Some of the rule sets are old versions that have been refined in the newer book.  But the booklet is still a good little read and makes a great gift for a friend who you'd like to introduce to hnefatafl.  And better still: I've dropped the price to under £2!

If you want to buy a copy of the book, just head over to its product page An Introduction to Hnefatafl (old edition), in The Hnefatafl Shop, and order yourself a copy.
