Garphill Games are in their final hours over on Kickstarter for their new Raiders of the North Sea board game. They’ve certainly done well, making over 5x their goal so far. In the game, players are vikings who must go do what vikings do: pillage, plunder, and raid! Select your crew and choose your destination for glory. The game mechanics are a new spin on “worker placement”-style ones, where you place a worker, then pick up a worker.
There’s just over a day or so to go until the time runs out, and still more stuff to unlock.
From the campaign:
Raiders of the North Sea is set in the central years of the Viking Age. As Viking warriors, players seek to impress Chieftan by raiding nearby settlements. Players will need to assemble a crew, collect provisions and journey north to plunder gold, iron and livestock. There is glory to be found in battle, even at the hands of the Valkyrie. So gather your warriors, it’s raiding season!
