Gala is a medieval norse game that ought to be researched more.
I have implemented it in Zillions. Have I got all the rules right? I don't
have recourse to all the sources, and not all sources give all the rules.
But it seems to work fine. Games seem to be about 80 moves long.
It is a very curious game. I have not seen anything like it before,
although it clearly is a relative of Hnefatafl. I am not sure I quite understand
it.
