King's Table The Game of the Vikings

West Chester Toys

Regular price $42.99

King's Table is a 1,500 year old forerunner of chess.  It is an exact replica of the game played in A.D. 400, as found in Lapland Scandinavia in 1732.  It was played by Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Finns, Icelanders and Russians.  This Viking game consists of 25 pieces divided between two unequally matched sides, (the Light and Dark sides).  It is a game of attack and defense.  All pieces move the same way.  It is the castle or rook's move in chess, that is, a piece can move as many spaces as are free but cannot jump over another piece.  The game can be played by young and old alike and can teach analytical patterns of thought, while having fun.
