Brian BAM! Motter of Black Slither Games and Amy Q. of InnerRealm Designs come together again to bring you their most epic game yet.

 What's better then metal?  The answer has always been nothing...until now.  Battle of the Electric Vikings gives you full reign to make the most epic metal song titles and lyrics. Be your own Lemmy or Rob Halford or Bruce Dickinson. With a 100 card deck the possibilities are seemingly endless. No board to hold you back from making the most brutally epic metal title known to man! The only limit is yourself.

The rules and game play are simple:

 2-6 player get 6 cards each to start and you create your own song titles or lyrics by placing cards horizontal, vertical and on top of other cards.
Score the points that are on the cards. Next player builds off of what's out on the table. (scrabble style) 

Included in the pack is 100 cards with 88 different words designed by Amy Q. (also the artist on Bear vs. Gorilla vs. CEO vs. Hippie and Kick/Punch/Burp/Fart/Slap) and rule card all in Black Slither's signature packaging, big enough to hold expansion packs.

 Black Slither Games is big on simple game play and Battle of the Electric Vikings maybe easy to play, but don't underestimate the pure metal power and intense creativity it will bring out in you and your friends/band mates.
