Tablut is an asymmetric war game for two players. the game is played on a 9 x 9 board, one player is in control of 16 black pieces which start on the edge of the board and the other player in in control of 8 white pieces surrounding their king (positioned in the center). The aim is for the king to escape the board via the edge, according to Murray (1952), which is possibly due to a misreading of Linnaeus's notes from his trip to Lapland in 1732.
Helmfrid (2005) suggests that the king escapes by reaching one of the four corners of the board, leading to a much more balanced game.
