Hnefatafl

My first app Hnefatafl will be coming out soon. I'm just waiting to hear back from my beta testers if they find anything in my last build and plan to submit to the app store in the next couple of days. I'll post the release date here after I've submitted it (just in case some major bug shows up, don't wanna give one till it's on it's way).

EDIT: Hnefatafl has been approved and will release on the App Store on August 23rd!

Hnefatafl is a multiplayer only game, there is no AI to play single player!

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.

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

Sounds cool can you add a singplayer, though?

We'll see down the road. First release will be multiplayer only. I have 0 experience programming AI, so...

This sounds really great, but the name? How do you even spell it?

Just submitted it to the app store. Tentative Release Date of August 16th, assuming Apple doesn't find anything wrong I have to fix and it doesn't take an unusually long time for them to get around to reviewing it.

Hnefatafl has been approved by Apple! I'm pushing the release date back by 1 week to August 23rd. I go on vacation on the 14th so I wouldn't be around in case any issues crop up if I released on the 16th. I decided it was better to push it back a week to when I'd be around just in case.
