In this episode, Tom gets back to board gaming's roots by playing the ancient games of Hnefatafl (aka "The Viking Game" or "King's Table") and Nine Men's Morris with the help of Joseph Bjork and Joseph Fisher from Good and Basic. We get down and dirty with theories about why Hnefatafl pieces move as they do, what ancient graffiti lies in the Hagia Sofia, and question why Tic-Tac-Toe exists at all in the modern age. This episode is chock full of fun, facts, and more people named Joseph than you are frankly prepared to handle. You definitely want to check this one out!
