I recently purchased a new game: Hnefatafl
Now as far as I'm aware, this is the game that Thud is based on, which is the real game I want to play. For reference, here is my set:
And here are my pieces:
I have twelve defenders, and 24 attackers. It looks like those aren't enough (based on the number in the wiki link), so how can I make up the numbers? Or can I play n a smaller board?
Also, what is the best way to reproduce that original board? Do I need to consider anything balance-wise if I do shrink the board/number of pieces? What else should I consider?
