Description Edit | History

Norse law dictates that every man shall posses a weapon at all times. The need to swiftly wield an axe in the name of battle, honor, or revenge was ever-present. Valhalla will not be filled with the weak.

In Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga, originally released as Viking Fury, you vie for glory across three epic Viking sagas, each one a different journey to raid, trade, and settle territories. Will you choose the path of diplomacy and trade for victory? Or will your longship cast a bloody wake?

Start your journey by gathering crew and goods to outfit your boat. Will your ships be filled with warrior or goods? Settlers or sackers? After your launch from bustling ports into the open sea, you must choose your path to power — but don't get lost in the wind; the sea will gladly devour souls who take her lightly...

The life of a Viking is one of power and glory, or untold sorrow. Which shall be your destiny?

3 Fire & Axe - Rules Summary
A condensing of the rules into just a few pages. The rules were very clear in the original game though they were large font and profusely illustrated. Both are great for learning the game, but not so much for quickly refreshing your memory. I printed it out double-sided, trimmed it, and laminated it. Note: the rules here should apply for both the original and the recently released F&A game.

15 Translations of the german cards into english
As the game seems more available in its german version, and "Drakkenshiv" and "Vikkingerr" sound way cool, i translated all Cards. For those who want to run rampant in designing card, i typed them in a handy doc format, ready to paste on custom made cards.
