About This Game

Vikings Hnefatafl: Kings of the Dark Age is a historical turn-based strategy game, based on the ancient hnefatafl board game played by Vikings.

The game itself has a very simple structure, albeit having been slightly altered from its original medieval form into a more computer game-esque format. The idea is to kill the enemy King, while simultaneously protecting your own at all costs. Compose your army, chart the map, and move wisely.

The game is set at the onset of the Viking invasions of Britain in the early Middle Ages. The Campaign follows the advance of the Vikings into the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, facing powerful kings such as the legendary Alfred the Great.

You will be leading either the Vikings or the Saxons into victory - or defeat - in this highly tactical yet calmly paced strategy game where every move counts.
