“The sea giveth, and the sea taketh away. And this time the sea… tooketh… my sword.”
We're living in an era where Vikings are simply Kings.
So how about a very good new game based on these fiery warriors?
Nidavellir is a game designed by Serge Laget (Shadows over Camelot, Mare Nostrum, Ad Astra, etc...). Not for the faint-hearted.
Knowing that will help you understand why this game is currently so popular.
Let's dive into it:
Nidavellir, the Dwarf Kingdom, is threatened by the dragon Fafnir. As a venerable Elvaland, you have been appointed by the King. Search through every tavern in the kingdom, hire the most skilled dwarves, recruit the most prestigious heroes, and build the best battalion you can to defeat your mortal enemy!
Each turn in Nidavellir you bid a coin on each tavern. In descending order, choose a character and add this character to your army. Each dwarf class has its own way of scoring: blacksmith, hunter, warrior, explorer, and miner. A meticulous recruitment will allow you to attract a powerful hero to your army.
You will also be able to increase the value of your gold coins thanks to the smart "coin-building" system and get the best of the other Elvalands.
Take a look. It's not about the size of the boat, but the motion of the ocean. So embark now by clicking here:
Nidavellir is a solid and pleasant game that fills the same niche as Isle of Skye, Carcassonne or Azul.
Some might feel that it is more like 7 wonders, but without the building phase.
The game has a rapid pace and can be played in 30 minutes. Try it to make up your own mind about that.
BGA would like to thank GRRRE Games as well as our skilled developers: Tisaac and vincentt, who made it happen quickly and be as enjoyable to play as possible.
The implementation will help you appreciate the game in the best way possible by taking care of most of the game upkeep.
