FYI, the first Kickstarter update, for those not already pledged:
The Academy Games team wants to you for the tremendous support that you have shown for '878 Vikings - Invasions of England'. You helped fund the game in 14 minutes and have helped unlocked over 14 stretch goals in the first 12 hours!
110 15mm Viking and English miniatures now supplied with the game!
878 Vikings is based on our very popular Birth of America series, which includes '1754 - Conquest' (pre-orders are shipping now and will be in distribution by June 2017), '1775 - Rebellion' which won Historical Game of the Year, and '1812 - The Invasions of Canada'.
As many of you know, these games are so much fun to play. Even better, you learn a bit about history without even trying. So much so, that these gamers are used in public, private and home schools throughout the USA. (Because of this, teaching books with a week's class itinerary have been written for several of our games and these are available on our website.)
As with the other games in the series, 878 Vikings has a ~5% change in the rules, that makes it VERY unique. You can download a pdf version of the rules by clicking on the rulebook image on the campaign page or below. Please let us know if we need to add any clarifications or if we made any mistakes (heaven forbid this, since we have edited this version dozens of times!)

Several supporters have emailed us with great advice and comments, which we will implement on the campaign page over the weekend.
So thank you so much for your support. Please tell your friends about this incredible game, so that we can unlock even more fantastic stretch goals.
Our team wishes everyone a wonderful weekend.
