A survival of the Norse game hnefatafl, tablut was played in eighteenth-century Lapland. A king and eight Swedish guards face sixteen Muscovites; the king must escape from the board while the Muscovites must capture him.

Since this leaflet was first written back in 2006, new research has added to our knowledge of how this game was played. The game in this leaflet is still a good one, but for a more accurate interpretation, please visit the tablut link under "Related Games" elsewhere on this page.

The leaflet is designed to be printed on two sides of A4 paper which can then be folded into an A5 leaflet. These leaflets are copyright protected but may be freely printed and distributed unmodified.
