Board Games of Unequal Sides

Tafl games are distinguished by the unequal number of opposing forces, and usually involves the lesser force attempting to capture the lager, whilst the larger force tries to thwart them. Tafl developed into Hnefatafl and this was spread far and wide by the Vikings. Bagha Chal, although similar, is thought to have descended from a separate source.

 
 

Ad: Board games such as Monopoly and Cluedo have always been popular, so much so that they have even been converted into pub and online slot games. To find sites where you can play Monopoly slots online visit bokuslots.com.
