That brings me to the reason for this article. I have been looking for a nice Hnefatafl game now for some time. Like most people I went to Amazon.com first because they have such a wide and diverse selection of products. Well they did not have what I wanted. However, down at the bottom of the screen page was a sponsored link for a company called Norse America who were advertising Hnefatafl games. So I clicked on the site to see what they had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised by all the Norwegian, Viking, and Asatru items they had. I quickly ordered the Hnefatafl game which looked really nice, and the price seemed quite reasonable.
The next day when I got home from work I had a message on my answering machine from Norse America . com telling me that my card number was not complete. They left their phone number and asked that I call them back. Then they said something that really surprised me. They said that my order was already packed and ready to ship as soon as they received my call. What company now a days would pick and pack an order without a confirmed payment. This is a rare show of trust that you seldom see anymore in businesses. I quickly called them back and understood their trusting ways when I heard a Scandinavian accent on the other end of the line. She was very pleasant and I had the feeling that this was a nice "mom and pop" type operation. My order came just two days later and I love my Viking Hnefatafl game ! I also ordered two Norwegian statues in period dress which also came in an incredibly fast time frame. And After unpacking them I realized they gave me a free period dress refrigerator magnet statue !
Norse America . com has a wonderful assortment of merchandise for sale, much of it imported from Scandinavia, and I really like doing business with this wonderful company and with such nice people. Although I have no affilliation with this company I recommend them whole - heartedly to one and all. Below I list a few of the items you can buy there :
Viking King Statues
Norwegian Period Dress Statues
Viking Jewelry ( I want to get a few of their Thor's Hammers )

Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection !
