2017 has been a fantastic year for Renegade Games who have published many exciting new titles this year, such as Ex Libris, Flip Ships, and Sentient. On top of that, though, they have also published the excellent worker placement game, Raiders of the North Sea, bringing it to larger distribution from independent publisher and developer Garphill Games. Bringing one of the more unique and high-quality Kickstarter successes to their repertoire is certainly a boon for new players and fans, but Renegade Games is not done surprising us yet. They have just announced that the two expansions for Raiders, Hall of Heroes and Fields of Fame, will be released later this year as well. As described in their press release:
“Renegade Game Studios is pleased to announce two expansions for the acclaimed Raiders of the North Sea from Garphill Games. These two expansions add new options and challenges for players as they test their raiding skills in the Kennerspiel des Jahres nominated Raiders of the Noth Sea. Both expansions require Raiders of the North Sea to play and are expected to release Q4 2017.”
While both expansions will be following on the heels of their Kickstarter counterparts, the fact that they will be just as available as the base game is welcome news for such an excellent worker-placement experience. Hall of Heroes adds more ways to get resources as well as quests which can be completed to facilitate other point-scoring goals. Fields of Fame adds a fame track to the game which rewards players for particularly strong crews as well as enemy Jarls mixed in to the foreign settlements which when raided forces players to choose to defeat them for points or flee in shame.
