Saga is a miniatures game originally set in the Dark Ages, beginning with the Viking invasions up to the Norman conquest of England. Expansion factions and subsequent updates take the game into the period of the Crusades.
The scale is skirmish level with each figure representing an individual combatant. The typical force size ranges from 17 to 73 figures, depending upon the player's choice of unit type. Specialized Saga dice are used to determine side's possible actions each turn with each faction utilizing a unique Battle Board. Combat is resolved using standard six-sided dice.
