Since today is meant to be the time of Ragnarok we need something Viking to kick things off this Saturday. Filling that quote is Shipwrights of the North Sea, a Kickstarter I stumbled upon while I was browsing the website. This game by Garphill Games looks like a very cool worker placement/card drafting game!
The game puts you at the head of a tribe of Vikings looking to be masters of the Northern Seas before heading out for fame and fortune to make sagas of your voyage. It plays with between 2 and 5 players and you can check out a gameplay video above of it in action.
The game comes with a bunch of awesome cards that have really epic cartoon Vikings on them as well as some ace landscapes and interesting ships. Added to that a rather polished looking set of components and you have yourself a rather snazzy looking game.
At a quick look over the rulebook it seems like it plays pretty well too so I might actually find myself investing in this on Ragnarok and then playing it in the afterlife of Valhalla with a mug of mead! Skol!
Check it out!
