King's Table is a multiplayer only game, there is no AI to play single player! Requires iOS 5+ to play online games through Game Center.

Tafl games are a family of ancient board games that originated in northern Europe, spread by the Vikings and Celts. It consists of two uneven teams of pieces, and unlike most similar board games, the two sides have different victory conditions. The smaller team in the center has a King piece that must escape to win. The larger attacking force wins by capturing the opponent's King.

* Universal App
* Pass and Play Multiplayer
* Asynchronous multiplayer over Game Center
* Three Boards/Variations - Hnefatafl, Ard-Ri and Tablut

Don't waste your money

You either have to play with someone by passing ur device back and forth or play like words w/friends where you have to wait for the other play to make their move. If we're gonna pay $2.99 the least you can do is let us play the computer.

Waste of money

Doesn’t have AI, and none of the online players keep up with the game so it really isn’t worth the 3 bucks. Don’t waste your money on this one

Updated: The update works great for me and even added the option for a weak king. I honestly did not expect the developer to update the app so soon. It's great to see someone who not only cares about their product, but the game itself. Worth much more than they are asking. Merci beaucoup! 5 stars now.

I wanted to give this 5 stars, but I can't quite do that. I actually do play hnefatafl, but I play with what is called the "weak king" rule. In that rule, one only needs to surround the king on two sides to win (like all other pieces) - thereby making the game more fair. The strong king - the rule this plays by - heavily weighs the game in white's favour, to the point where it is almost un-winnable for red. While I understand that both rules are legitimate, it would be nice if we could choose between strong or weak rules. Otherwise, it can be frustrating to play as red.
