Hnefatafl - the Viking Game

how pieces DON'T capture...part 2

Article text
This move does NOT capture the king, at least, not in this version of the rules, known as the "Fetlar" rules (named after the island where the World Championship is held). In some versions of hnefatafl, this would count as a win for black. However, in Fetlar Hnefatafl, this is not a win for black - the king has to be forced away from the board edge and surrounded.
