We've been playing Hnefatafl at the office on and off now for about 3 years. It's a fun game, but we wanted more of a challenge, so we've modded it a little using runes to grant actions to the pieces. You draw out a pair of runes, and use them to move pieces about the board (extra-cool maneuvers if you combine runes for a meta tag). So just a thought I had while playing a game today, who'd like a Fate of the Norns Hnefatafl game produced? Perhaps not only with basic rules, but with expanded rules using runes? Anyhow, I'm throwing this thread out there to gauge the potential interest.

I'd probably just use the set that I have and the deck of rune cards that I have from the Gulveig set. Some rules would be pretty cool though. Be a pretty easy little add on for rune sets.

I have the Ancient Times set already but would still be interested if yours was nice/different enough from my current one. The additional rules would be of interest as well. One suggestion if you do a set, make each piece unique so that they can double as miniatures when playing FotNR. They can be very similar to each other so long as they each have a distinguishing feature/rune/symbol/something.

That is a solid idea!
