#hnefatafl was an abstract strategy board game that Vikings loved. I hadn't been aware of it until reading this interesting Atlas Obscura article on its history (check it out, worth the read) https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/what-is-hnefatafl-viking-board-game
Of course, BoardGameGeek has more info https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2932/hnefatafl
@adomoc I have heard of it. Never played; I would be interested in trying it.
