River Horse Previews Victor the Kurgan For The Highlander Board Game

Well, if there can be only one, that seems to imply that there's more than one from time to time. Such is the case with the Immortals in Highlander. So, who else is out there besides the MacLeods? Well, how about Victor the Kurgan? He'll be part of the upcoming board game from River Horse. Check him out here.

From the announcement:

The second character available for play in Highlander, The Board Game is Victor, a vicious monster of a man.

The Kurgans were an ancient people from the steppes of Russia, but the warrior drawn to America for the Gathering was far older than even those tribes. He was raised with the name Victor, and taught to be the perfect warrior; powerful, strong and ruthless. Trained to beba killer from an early age, the tribe hardened its youngsters by hurling them into fighting pits with starving dogs. Only the strongest survived, and these were exactly the kinds of warriors the Kurgan tribe wanted.

The Kurgan is not the character of choice for those of great subtlety and is most effective at the beginning and ends of the game. His high starting power keeps enemies at bay, though the Kurgan will find it hard to upgrade it due to his other lower stats. At the very end of the game the Kurgan gains a great boon in four quickening tokens, enough to give Victor victory and allow him to claim the prize?
