Brandub Board Game

Brandub Board Game

Ratings: (0)|Views: 51|Likes:
Published by Mallee Blue Media
Ireland is one among many countries to which the Norse raiders and settlers took their arms, their culture and their game of hnefatafl. There has been confusion about what the Irish called Brandub, but literary evidence settles on the name brandub, or brannumh, which means, inexplicably, "black raven". While the size of hnefatafl boards varied from place to place, archaeological finds show that the Irish had a preference for the smallest of the boards, 7 squares by 7.

Brandub Tradtional Boards found at Downpatrick, Waterford, Antrim, and a famous board from Ballinderry, are all of this size. Poetry also suggests that they played with 13 pieces: a branan, or chief, with 4 guards against 8 attackers.
