New today we have Explorers of the North Sea, and the North Sea Runesaga, which merges all three North Sea games into one epic campaign! We have all four games in stock, and here they are…
Shipwrights of the North Sea
Shipwrights of the North Sea is set in the early years of the Viking Age, circa 900 AD. As Viking shipwrights, players compete to build the greatest fleet on the North Sea. Players must collect oak, wool and iron, as well as getting other craftsmen on board to help. Gold is a precious commodity, and must be spent wisely. As you would expect, the township is filled with an array of characters, bad and worse. Better hope they’re on your side! The aim of Shipwrights of the North Sea is to be the player with the most Victory Points at the game’s end. Points are gained by constructing various Ships and Buildings. The game ends after the round where 1 or more players constructs their 4th ship.
Raiders of the North Sea
Raiders of the North Sea is set in the central years of the Viking Age. As Viking warriors, players seek to impress the Chieftain by raiding unsuspecting settlements. Players will need to assemble a crew, collect provisions and journey north to plunder gold, iron and livestock. There is glory to be found in battle, even at the hands of the Valkyrie. So gather your warriors, it’s raiding season! The aim of Raiders of the North Sea is to impress the Chieftain by having the most Victory Points (VP) at the game’s end. Victory Points are gained primarily by raiding Settlements, taking Plunder and making Offerings to the Chieftain. How players use their Plunder is also vital to their success. The game ends when either only 1 Fortress raid remains, all Valkyrie are removed, or all Offerings have been made.
Explorers of the North Sea
Explorers of the North Sea is set in the latter years of the Viking Age. As ambitious sea captains, players seek out new lands to settle and control. They will need to transport their crew among the newly discovered islands to capture livestock, construct outposts and fulfill various other goals. So ready the longships, there are new horizons to explore!
The North Sea Runesaga
The North Sea Runesaga is an epic competition for 2-4 players to collect the most Runestones and earn the highly coveted title of Chieftain. Players will progress through each chapter of the North Sea saga (Shipwrights, Raiders and Explorers). All three games are required to play Runesaga!
Each chapter offers 3 unique Runestones for players to collect. These are awarded to the first player to achieve a particular objective. Gaining these Runestones also awards players advantages in successive chapters. Each of these Runestones also have 1 or 2 inscriptions (Shield, Horn and Hammer). The first player to gain 3 inscriptions of 1 type collects an additional Runestone for their efforts. Players also gain 2 Runestones for winning each chapter or 1 Runestone for coming a close second. However, Runestones collected this way do not award any in-game advantages or inscriptions. Once all 3 chapters have been played, the player with the most Runestones is the overall winner and takes the title of Chieftain!
