Tafl games are a family of ancient Germanic and Celtic strategy board games played on a checkered or latticed gameboard with two armies of uneven numbers, representing variants of an early Scandinavian board game called tafl or hnefatafl in contemporary literature.
Halatafl is the Old Norse name for Fox and Geese, a game dating from at least the 14th century. Kvatrutafl is the Old Norse name for Tables (the medieval forerunner of Backgammon). Fidchell or Fithcheall (Modern Irish: Ficheall) was played in Ireland.
The Welsh equivalent was Gwyddbwyll and the Breton equivalent Gwezboell; all terms mean "wood-sense".
