Recently I picked up the translation of Beowulf by Tolkien and have been enjoying it immensely. So, when I saw that King Post were bringing an adaptation of the epic poem to Kickstarter in board game form I had to take note…

You’ll be playing the leader of a tribe in the age of Beowulf looking to have your deeds transcribed into legend. Each turn while you battle fate and monsters you’ll also be charting the progress of the heroic Beowulf as he goes from slaying Grendel to the mighty Dragon that ended his life.

The notion of the game and the way the flow of time is demonstrated in the mechanics sounds very intriguing and if you’re a fan of history this might be right up your alley. As a Beowulf lover I’m very interested in picking this up.
