Other Viking Games have come and gone, but one game lived on the lips of gamer’s everywhere: Fire & Axe. This gem has been out of print for over a decade and going for North of $200 dollars second hand ever since.
The legend returns in a brand new deluxe edition from Pandasaurus Games and IDW Games. Every care has been taken to update this classic game with all new, breathtaking art and design, inimitable miniatures and top notch components.
The King is back, and looks better than ever:
For the first print run only, we will be including 25 each of the Shield Maiden and Archer figures (5 in each player color). So, be sure you contact your favorite game store and make sure you get a first edition copy reserved.
“Norse law dictates that every man shall posses a weapon at all times.
The need to swiftly wield an axe in the name of battle, honor or revenge was ever-present. Valhalla will not be filled with the weak.
In Fire & Axe, you will vie for glory across three epic Viking sagas, each one a different journey to raid, trade and settle territories. Will you choose the path of diplomacy and trade for victory? Or will your longship cast a bloody wake?
Start your journey by gathering crew and goods to outfit your boat. Will your ships be filled with warrior or goods? Settlers or sackers? After your launch from bustling ports into the open sea, you must choose your path to power.
But don’t get lost in the wind; the sea will gladly devour souls who take her lightly…
The life of a Viking is one of power and glory, or untold sorrow. Which shall be your destiny?”
Fire & Axe is one of The Dice Tower’s “Top 10 Games That Keep Getting Better.” There’s a reason this gem’s a Grail Game! Check it out:
