Minion Games has started their latest Kickstarter project, Saga of the Northmen.

Designed by Scott Leibbrandt and tested at Protospiel, Saga of the Northmen is for 2 to 4 players ages 13 and up and plays in 30 to 40 minutes.  It is a light war game set in the Dark Ages where you are the chieftain of a clan of Vikings allying and battling other clans for control of the 7 kingdoms of Europe.

A great introductory game to the area control mechanic, Saga of the Northmen is played over a series of rounds in which each player will draft influence cards which will be used to garner influence throughout the 7 kingdoms as well as populate the neutral regions with the very plunder (VPs) you will need to collect in order to win the game.  Each chieftain will also have a hidden trade route objective(s) that if completed will increase their wealth at the end of the game.

So, go forth, spread your influence, plunder the land’s riches, hire heroes to help you battle for control of contested neutral regions, establish trade routes, and conquer as many of the 7 kingdoms of Europe as you can on your way to victory in Saga of the Northmen!
