Gods and mythical creatures are coming to Nidavellir

June 7, 2022 - 12:55pm

Publisher GRRRE Games has announced a second expansion for Nidavellir. In Nidavellir: Idavoll, players can recruit gods, mythical animals, giants, and valkyrie to their cause. Each category has a special ability. Idavoll is compatible with the first expansion, Nidavellir: Thingvellir, but that expansion is not required for Idavoll. 

In Nidavellir, each of two to five players has been appointed by the dwarven king to recruit heroes from the three local taverns to defend the land against the dragon Fafnir. Each round, players make a blind bid on each of the taverns using a coins with different values. In descending order, players select a dwarf from the tavern. Players can also upgrade the coins in their pool. Each dwarf has a value and a color, creating a set collection competition among the players. Nidavellir: Thingvellir adds artifacts and mercenaries that players can obtain. Nidavellir: Idavoll ups the stakes and the variety by adding four new types of cards to recruit: 

  • Gods have a one-time use unique power
  • Giants can capture one dwarf of the matching class
  • Valkyries have a strength track with specific requirements, and the further a player advances on the track, the more victory points they will score 
  • Mythical animals have unique special abilities

Nidavellir and both expansions are designed by Serge Laget, with art by Jean-Marie Minguez. Nidavellir: Idavoll is scheduled for a retail release in late 2022.
