Hey all. Just got an email from Grey Fox Games saying Champions of Midgard will be on Tabletop soon and to celebrate that you can get it for $35 and free sleeves and shipping using code "midgard35" on their website. You may need to be subscribed to the newsletter to get this done deal, but that's easy enough to do. Link to site - http://www.greyfoxgames.com/games/champions-of-midgard/

not bad; that's a bit lower than camel3x says amazon has listed it.

I picked this game up for about the same price, totally love it. Though, I'm pretty certain the insert doesn't play nice with sleeves. The dice give it more of a press your luck feel, and the worker placement is unforgiving for that Viking theme edge.

This sounds like a good deal. How do I add the sleeves?

Thanks for the heads up on this game. Just ordered a copy with the "midgard35" code. I understand why people say this game is somewhat similar to Lords of Waterdeep (which is great news since we love LoWD). However, other than the worker placement aspects and the similar look of the board, I expect the dice element will give this game a very different feel.

Also, not clear if the "sleeves" that come with this game are needed since we are not talking about lots of shuffling. However, I am a big fan of protecting my games so I have no complaints if they are included for "free"!

Very little shuffling and the cards are good linen stock. Unless you p[lan on playing this 100x or more, no need for sleeves.

The dice warriors make this a far more interesting game than LoWD, especially since competition for specific colors of Draugrs and Monsters heats up with each passing round. Those blame tokens add another very nice mechanism. I see no need to replace LoWD, but given a choice I'd go with this one.

Looks like an interesting game, but it'd never see our table because it only plays up to 4.

You regularly have game groups exceeding 4? What a problem to have!

This is a fantastic game at a great price. This game is a lot deeper than it looks on the surface. I got stomped the first time I played it because I took some risks that didn't pan out. You have to be thoughtful about what you want to do in the game.

My only complaint is that the journey cards are pretty random and their outcome when you are traveling to fight monsters can decide if you end up getting the reward or not. That can be a bit "swingy" and might not sit all that well with people, but I think thematically it works very well.

I think the dice are far less random than say, Stone Age. Because you can have up to 8 dice in your party, unless you plan poorly, you will rarely come away from a battle without winning it. The main variable is how many warriors you will lose when fighting.

Really like this one.

Hehe, yeah, it's good and bad. Good because I get to play with 5-6 players. Bad because we can't play all the great 4-player games that are out there. Splitting up is simply not an option.

I got a shipping notice but it only listed the game no sleeves. Hopefully they included them.

I'm waiting with bated breath to see if people get packages with sleeves or not.

Email claiming sleeves are included carries less weight than checkout not mentioning sleeves.

Also got mine today. It came with 3 unopened packages of card sleeves. Even if I use the sleeves for something else, it was a great deal for $35 an free shipping with the sleeves.

Is that what this is, the 3rd printing?

I wonder if there are any changes between 1, 2, and 3. Just a straight reprint?

(btw, I got mine, sleeves included)

Did anyone get any sort of tracking info on their order?

I shot over an email on Monday to see if it was available and I've yet to hear back. Not in a hurry mind you. But, we've had a problem with package gremlins at my building in the past.
