OK - I got hooked by the Viking series on the History Channel. After years of Axe Men, Ice Road, Swamp People they came backed to history.

Anyway, it seems others have been reinvigorated in viking lore. New viking games have been popping up in the past few years.

It has always been one of my favorite genres. I owe, have owned and have some ordered and and on my wishlish.

Here are mine!

Reiner Knizia's short abstract card game. Haven't played it much, but now that my young grandson is showing interest in gaming I am going to bring it to the table.

If I remember correctly, the faction name is "Barbarians", but obviously these are based on Vikings.

I'm the designer and publisher of Ragnaroll, so please delete my add if it isn't kosher, but I hope you'll check out the game. I've worked real hard to make sure Ragnaroll feels like a thematic Viking game, instead of a game with Viking theme slapped on top.

The elevator pitch is:
Ragnaroll is a dice-driven game about surviving and thriving in the Norse apocalypse. You’ll control a mighty Viking hero and a band of hungry Viking warriors. You’ll need to fight with axe and shield to be the last Viking standing or survive long enough to fight in the final battle.
