Vikings didn’t tend to bog themselves down in legal matters. If two of them had a disagreement, it could very likely be solved by a duel. And that’s just what you’ll be doing in Holmgang: Duel of the Vikings, a new battle card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Holmgang: Duel of Vikings is an intense two-player card game designed by Druzzrug Games and brought to life by the unique, stylistic art of the legendary Hankerin Ferinale (of Drunkens and Dragons). We’ve had a BLAST collaborating and are beyond excited to have a chance at finally sharing this game with the world. It’s already fully designed, playtested, and ready to go. We just need you to help us get this out there! This is all or nothing.
What’s with the name?
Holmgang is the Old Norse word for ‘duel’. You have been transported back into the tumultuous Dark Ages as a Viking, your honor offended by an óvinr – a rival. Now your own judge, jury, and executioner, the only answer is a fight to the death! You must rely on your skill with the axe and shield (and a bit of luck) to survive. Perhaps even the Aesir – the gods who dwell in Asgard – will aid you. However, there are at least two certainties: steel will clash, and only one shall walk away a champion this day. Now step forward!
The Kickstarter is a bit more than half-funded with still 24 days left to go.
