Viking Games

A number of our OSHC children enjoy playing chess so it was not a surprise that they enjoyed the Viking game of Hnefetafl. This is a great inside activity and it teaches strategical thinking. Check out these links for the rules and the layout of the board:- http://www.stormthecastle.com/Things/hnefatafl.htm, http://www.mnh.si.edu/vikings/learning/boardgame.html
