In 1973, games publisher Steidl-Verlag from Göttinger, Germany, published
a series of five games, including a game called Wikingerschach.
In 1974, the rights went to another publisher, called Verlag Bert Schlender
from the same city, and later, the rights went to Verlag Hornauer from
Frankfurt; probably in 1978, the production of the game series was stopped.
The name means: Viking Chess.
