From the Grey Fox newsletter:

Quote:
Since 2015, players around the world have battled for glory in Champions of Midgard with friends and family. They've taken down trolls and sailed across the seas to fight epic monsters with viking warriors at their side.

Both of this year's expansions, Valhalla and Dark Mountains have gotten an amazing reception. We love creating games in this world and we'd like to introduce you to a game you'll be hearing a lot more about in 2018.... Reavers of Midgard.

Reavers of Midgard is a single worker placement game set in the Midgard universe, designed by J.B. Howell with art by Yaroslav Radeckyi. In the game, players will recruit veteran fighters, draft viking warriors, upgrade their ships and sail off to raid villages and keeps in order to bring home the spoils of battle. Oh, and don't forget about that pesky troll, who's wreaking even more havoc on the village this time.

We expect to launch Reavers of Midgard on Kickstarter sometime in the middle of 2018. We'll be releasing more details of the game here in the newsletter first, so stay tuned!


Very exciting!

Didn't they just describe Champions of Midgard? What makes it different?

Maybe "single worker placement" means it's a solo game?

Maybe it’s just one worker at a time instead of 3-5 like the normal game. I don’t know but yeah, it sounds the same

Hi Adam,

Single worker placement refers to a single worker being placed. The game is still in development, but one of the core mechanics is, on their turn, a player will place that worker and then activate that space for everyone in clockwise order, often triggering a draft (of warriors, resources, battles). The game uses veteran warriors in some unique ways too that we'll be discussing in the coming weeks/months.

Thanks,
Alex

A dice placement game with this theme would be great.

Obviously I'm guessing here, but it sounds as though it will be very similar to Raiders of the North Sea, which is a good game IMO.

I'll probably pass due to already owning 2 great viking themed games that have very different feels to them.

Limit to 2 viking games? But, but, what about Blood Rage, Fire & Ace, Villaineus Vikings, Shipwrights, Explorers, Vikingjarl and all the other great ones?

Does anyone know if Champions of Midgard and/or its expansions (with KS exclusives ofc.) will be available as add-on to the Reavers of Midgard KS campaign?

I don’t think there’s a Reavers KS campaign. As far as I know this one is going to retail, just like Champions did originally.
Oh..it is right there in the announcement. I missed it on the first reading.
I’m not going to lie, that is disappointing. Few companies are able to keep the Kickstarter bloat under control and offer a good gameplay/value ratio.

I’m excited for this one.

I’m hoping they tweaked some of the end-game of Champions of Midgard where players seem overpowered and the thrill and increasing challenge of the early game is missing.
