Mythic Games are moving towards the final ten hours or so of their Kickstarter campaign for HEL: The Last Saga. Loads of goodies have been unlocked and tied into the main Berserker Pledge which gives you the core of this narrative game.

Check Out HEL: The Last Saga On Kickstarter

HEL: The Last Saga is packed with goodies. As well as all of the miniatures which represent the various characters and monsters that you'll be encountering as you go about your adventures, you'll also find a wealth of lavishly created cards and such which are adorned with wonderful artwork. Plus, you've also got the book which contains all of the narrative elements you'll be reading as you go.

Make sure to watch us playing the game to get an idea for how it works...

We had a lot of fun with this game and could see it being a really nice narrative experience for those who like their storytelling games and anything with a Viking slant to it!

Add-Ons

You'll note that the image above talks about Add-Ons for the campaign. Well, the team at Mythic Games has presented us with quite a few fun ones.

The Making Of - Mythic Games

There are a few elements like the Hnefatafl set and the art book above which give you an insight into the wider world of HEL and also an entirely new game to play. But, you've also got some materials which enhance the gameplay experience in some way too.

You don't need any of these upgrades which is good but they might make things look that little bit fancier as you set up to play. It does seem like HEL: The Last Saga is meant to be quite a lavish experience and you get the sense that it would be all the better with low light, flickering candles, mead and the slow rumble of Nordic music in the background.

Stretch Goals

In addition to Add-Ons (hah) we also have some Stretch Goals for the campaign.

The Stretch Goals here upgrade existing components like some of the cardboard tokens whilst also throwing in a few alternative sculpts too. I was a big fan of the cardboard tokens and such that they had in the main game to be honest but I can see why people would like playing around with plastic miniatures/pieces for everything. Again, it plays into the idea of this being a lavish experience.

Are you tempted to dive in and check out HEL: The Last Saga?
