Recommended: Hnefatafl is the ancient strategy game developed in Scandanavia, and popular across Europe until it was replaced by Chess as the more fashionable game to play. I got my set at GenCon from an artist known for his hand-carved Viking horns, and it's a beautiful and fun addition to our game library. It's easy to learn, and challenging to master. If you're someone who likes classic and old games like Chess, Backgammon, or Othello this game will be right up your alley. You can pick up a copy at almost any store that sells quality board games, or check out Where the Gods Live to see the artistic pieces done by Brian Marshall.
Tabletop Review: Iron & Ale

Recommended: Iron & Ale is a fun game that's simple to play and easy to learn. Players won't find a lot of complicated rules that are hard to remember while also drinking, and it can be adapted for your group's personal preferences when it comes to libations. We even had a DD playing the game, and drinking his energy drinks, and still had a blast. There was some repetition but those cards can be removed if desired. Overall it's a lot of fun to play, and a good bang for your buck.
