The age of Vikings is one filled with adventure, excitement, and really wild things. And you can bring those legendary times to your tabletops in Asator, a new viking combat board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Hearken back to the days of yore when Viking armies fought epic battles. The two most powerful leaders of the Northmen are now poised to strike each other. They fight for glory, they fight for their people, they fight for their land, and they fight for the honor of mighty Thor. The victor will claim their birthright from the Thunder God- the title of Asator, Master of War. Divine fury surges through the warriors as they join ranks with wood and steel. Thunder rolls and lightning streaks across the heavens; the war horns sound and the battle begins!
Welcome to the world of Asator. I’m Paul Templeman, the creator of Asator. The game began in a quest to combine battle mechanics similar to D&D with the strategy and larger scale combat of chess. I was frustrated as a teen with the limitations of chess, but also by the singular nature of D&D combat- I always wanted a larger scale battle than was offered. Asator combines the best of these worlds into a unique playing environment maximizing creativity and strategy for outcomes. I’ve kept 4 basic principles in mind while designing Asator- It had to be fun, it had to be flexible, it had to be simple, and quality of components was an absolute must. I believe this game delivers on all of those ideals.
