In the Name of Odin

PSI have just announced two brand new exclusive sales and fulfilment deals in all North America and international markets (excluding Europe – although I don’t know what we did to deserve that!) for NSKN Games and Strawberry Studio.

NSKN Games have been in the hobby gaming market since 2011, and have made quite the name for themselves through games such as In the Name of OdinMistfallHeart of the MistsSand & Snow and Mistfall: Valskyrr.

Strawberry Studio have only recently come into their own (2016), as a daughter company of NSKN Games, but have already made a micro-splash in the world of microgames with titles like 3 WishesWhat’s Up and of course Strawberry Ninja.



The old Jarl is looking for a successor among the wisest and the bravest, and a salty wind carries a promise of wealth and glory.  Build your ship, gather your men, and carve your way to the throne.  Lord Odin is watching, will you become the one to rule in his name?

NSKN Games is now running their latest Kickstarter project, In the Name of Odin.  This is a strategy game for 2-5 players in which players will use Action Cards to build structures, gather men, recruit famous Vikings, and buy longships in order to conduct raids.  Each raid has a set of requirements and a reward in Fame.  The player who has the most Fame at the end of the game becomes the new Jarl, winning the game.
