One bit of news came out while I was gone last week that got me a little excited.
Yesterday’s “New to Me – May 2017” post included my play of Jorvik, a viking game about settling northern England.
There seems to be a bunch of Viking games coming out over the last couple of years, some more enticing than others to me (or one that looks interesting but a friend of mine is already buying it so I’m not going to bother).
One that looked kind of interesting, but I discovered that it really wasn’t widely available around these parts (and not in English, apparently), was Raiders of the North Sea, a worker placement game where you are collecting resources and building up your crews so you can raid villages to get treasure and more resources.
The surprising news came out that Renegade Game Studios is going to be publishing Raiders of the North Sea in English for the first time.
Also according to Dice Tower News, both English-language expansions will be coming out as well.
This game has been nominated for the Kennerspiel des Jahres (German expert game of the year) for 2017, which is certainly noteworthy.
According to Renegade, the game itself will be available sometime this Summer with the expansions coming in the Fall.
I can’t wait!
