From the Publisher...
The world of men, called Midgard, is in its final days, and the battle at the end of the world, called Ragnarok, has begun. Those warriors brave enough to fight to the end will have a hallowed place in the halls of Valhalla when the battle is over, but only one clan will hold the seat of highest honor. Will it be yours?
Midgard is a strategic board game of kingdom control for 3 to 5 players ... with a twist. Over three escalating rounds, players semi-secretly draft from decks of action cards, taking cards they need for their strategy or denying their opponents the best cards in the rotation. Then, after the action cards are played out, comes Ragnarok, in which some kingdoms will become doomed. And all battling vikings therein are destroyed in glorious rapture, scoring many points for their owners.
Thousands of possible combinations and interactions make Midgard endlessly replayable, and always tense right up until the end of the world!
Contents: 100 cards, 55 wooden Viking pawns, 5 wooden Viking leader pawns, 5 wooden score markers, 10 doom tokens, 120 Kingdom tokens, 1 gameboard.

|A short strategy game that is a lot deeper than it appears at first glance. Midgard is a very fast pace area control/combat game with card driven mechanics. With often subtle goals and very strategic card drafting rounds, this game is definitely worth trying.
