Kubb and Hnefatafl

Today we learned about Viking games. We had fun playing Kubb in the courtyard around lunch time. It was a gorgeous day outside today to do so.

After dinner I learned how to play Hnefatafl which is similar to chess. We also had opportunities today to learn about runes, do some runic inspired art, go on a brewery tour of the Valhalla Brewery, walk to the beach, and have a traditional Viking feast. I plan on teaching Kubs and Hnefatafl to my students so if any of you would like to play a rousing game, we should get together once I purchase the kits.
