Being overseas I'm always a bit behind on current entertainment back in the States. This week I just discovered the TV show "Vikings."

This has got to be one of the coolest shows I've seen in a long time. Good acting, good story-line, beautiful scenery.

Made me wonder--are there any good Viking games?

I just started playing a non-board game (sorry, please kill me later) called King of Dragon Pass. I play on iPhone but you can get on PC and various other platforms.

The advice when playing the game is to get in to the mindset of being an Orlanthi tribal leader which is very much like a Viking!

It's a text game, sort of like a civilization game and a choose your own adventure book together. The text appears over some fairly nice static artwork.

Fun! Hard! Brutal!

Addictive.

Vikings is good. Caveat: you asked for "games", not "wargames" specifically... The game is a eurogame, definitely not a wargame.

Yes, I see--"no pillage involved" hmm.

Thank you very much--I even searched and didn't find that before I posted. There is probably even a thread about the series here somewhere too.
