Version 1.0.1 Released

iOS 6 and iPhone 5 compatability.

Added a Weak King option when creating a new game. When Weak King is turned on, the King can be captured the same way as any other piece instead of having to be surrounded on all four sides.

Updated the Rules view to show some screenshots to make things more clear and understandable.

Hnefatafl was approved!  Official release date is August 23rd.  I go on vacation on August 14th, so I pushed back the release a week so I would actually be around in case anything goes wrong and I need to push a quick update to Apple.

Hnefatafl has been submitted to the App Store!

Hnefatafl has been submitted to Apple for approval to enter the app store!  Tentative Release Date - August 16, 2012.


Hnefatafl is a multiplayer only game, there is no AI to play single player! Requires iOS 5+ to play online games through Game Center. 

Tafl games are a family of ancient board games that originated in northern Europe, spread by the Vikings and Celts. It consists of two uneven teams of pieces, and unlike most similar board games, the two sides have different victory conditions. The smaller team in the center has a King piece that must escape to win. The larger attacking force wins by capturing the opponent's King. 

* Universal App 
* Pass and Play Multiplayer 
* Asynchronous multiplayer over Game Center 
* Three Boards/Variations - Hnefatafl, Ard-Ri and Tablut
