Z-Man Games Announces A Feast For Odin: The Norwegians

Yo-ho! Yo-ho! A viking's life for me! Ok, I know that's not really how the song goes, but unless I wanted to just start posting Amon Amarth lyrics, I don't know many viking songs.

In this interview, we get a look at what inspired him when creating the new art pieces.

Barbarian hordes are gathering outside the walls and the citizens of Rome are trapped. The garrisons are stretched thin. Will they be able to hold out or is the Fall of Rome inevitable? The new edition is available to order now.

Z-Man Games has posted up a new preview, as well as an announcement of trying out the game at Gen Con.

Z-Man Games Posts New Race to the New Found Land Preview

When you have a fleet of ships, you have a lot of options open for what they can do. They can go out and start new settlements. They can go out and search for new lands. They can transport cargo.

In this preview, we get a look at just how the different actions in the game work.
