Coming to Kickstarter on the 19th of October!


Ready to raid?


Viking Raiders is a quick, fun and easy-to-learn card game for 2-5 players (age 9+) brimming with action, strategy and mayhem.


You are a Viking chief, competing to get the biggest Navy, the largest Clan and the most Loot.


With loads of raiding, plundering and interference from the Norse Gods, you will feel totally Vikingy from the first draw until long after the final backstabbing and bloodthirsty move.


And let's face it, who doesn't want to be a Viking for 45 minutes?

 

What's in the box?

THE GAME


Become a Viking for 45-60 minutes and jostle with your family or friends to become the ultimate Viking Chief with the largest Navy, the biggest Clan, and the most Loot! 

EASY TO PLAY


Quick to learn, easy to set up, and hard to stay calm.


You will soon be competing for the best cards, raiding each other with a passion, and invoking favours from the Norse Gods in your quest for victory ... and revenge.

From our playtesters

Liva "The best thing about the gameplay was ... we liked everything!!!"

Rikke "We were very impressed by the game and our friends (who are more experienced in boardgames) were also and ready to purchase the game right away."

The Developer

Morten Billcliff

Morten has a lifetime of creativity behind him, and has a passion for simple family games like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, 7 Wonders and Dominion. As an experienced project manager and digital learning designer, he is now using his skills to bring Viking Raiders from the depths of his Nordic mind to the surface of your tabletop. 


His vision was to create a gateway game which bridges the gap from games like Uno and Exploding Kittens to more complex games like Magic the Gathering and Dominion. The game has a high level of interaction, plenty of 'gotcha' moments and some interesting decision making without being difficult to learn or play. And most importantly, we want you to feel like a Viking Chief from the moment you start to the bloodthirsty finish!  


We have deliberately avoided the 'dark fantasy' style of artwork, opting to keep the game bright and visually appealling, whilst staying as true to Viking history and Norse Mythology as possible.


And yes, Ragnarok really feels like Ragnarok!
