Raiders of the North Sea: Two Expansions

NZ$ 489,807

3,175

Garphill Games, in association with Pixie Games (FR) and Schwerkraft-Verlag (DE) are proud to bring you two exciting new expansions for the popular Viking saga, Raiders of the North Sea. All previous North Sea titles are also available as add-ons in this campaign. Please see the add-ons section to see exactly which titles are available in each language.

 

In Raiders of the North Sea: Fields of Fame, enemy jarls have joined forces to help defend against the onslaught of raids on their settlements. But despite their threats, there is fame awaiting those who seek to kill or subdue them. Encountering a jarl is sure to bring injury, but now is no time for the faint-hearted. Onwards to the battlefield!

Key Features:

  • Components for an extra player
  • Township Board with 3 new raids
  • Jarls bring new strategies and more ways to score Victory Points
  • Crew Members can take wounds in battle, weakening players' crews
  • Players collect Fame in battle, worth Victory Points at the game's end

How Does It Change Raiders?

Fields of Fame brings a new dynamic into the game with the addition of Jarl tokens being mixed in with the Plunder and Valkyrie. When taking a set of Plunder with 1 or more Jarls, the raiding player must reveal from the draw pile, which Jarls they are encountering. They have the option to kill (for Fame and other rewards), subdue (to recruit them) or to flee. Killing and subduing will bring wounds to a players crew, but fleeing will lose them Fame or Victory Points. Players can also gain Fame by raiding with overpowered crews. When a crew's strength is above the highest tier for scoring Victory Points, players move up with the Fame Track, which scores additional Victory Points at the game's end.

Components

Additional Components
(Conquered Stretch Goals)

  • 18 More Townsfolk Cards
  • 3 More Jarl Cards
  • 2 Valkyrie Dice
  • 6 Double-sided Multiplier Tokens
  • 3 Reference Cards
  • Upgraded Wound Tokens

In Raiders of the North Sea: Hall of Heroes, a mead hall has been constructed, attracting a new breed of adventurers. Each raid brings new quests for the daring to endure. But with mead in abundance, there is little room for the wary. So sharpen your axe and ready your shield, there are new adventures awaiting!


Key Features:

  • Components for an extra player
  • Mead Hall Board with new Village location and card drafting area
  • Quests bring new strategies and more ways to score Victory Points
  • New Mead resource allows players to gain more strength in battle
  • Large Player Boards for storing cards, Quests and resources

How Does It Change Raiders?

Hall of Heroes brings in new ways of gaining resources, acquiring crew and scoring Victory Points. After each raid, a new Quest is placed onto the Board. To complete a Quest, players will need to send (discard) warriors from their hand of a certain strength value. Once completed, the Quest is placed above a Player's Board and will score Victory Points at the game's end. Each Quest also rewards players with Iron, Gold, Silver and other resources. Players can also collect Mead, which can be spent during a raid to fuel their crew and gain even more strength in battle!

Additional Components
(Conquered Stretch Goals)

  • 18 More Townsfolk Cards
  • 4 More Reputation Tiles
  • 6 Double-sided Multiplier Tokens
  • 3 Reference Cards
  • Upgraded Mead Tokens

This optional add-on item is a larger box (classic Ticket to Ride / Village / Endeavor size) and comes with a custom plastic insert, designed to hold all components from Raiders of the North Sea + both expansions. The insert also allows space for sleeved cards.

Additional Components
(Conquered Stretch Goals)

  • 40 Wooden Provisions

Can Both Expansions Be Played Together?

Absolutely! Fields of Fame and Hall of Heroes have been designed to complement each other. Mead gained in Hall of Heroes can help boost your crew's strength to gain more glory in Fields of Fame. Likewise, subduing strong Jarls in Fields of Fame also frees up your hand to go on more Quests in Hall of Heroes.

What About Additional Players?


Each expansion adds components for an additional player. So playing both expansions together now allows for up to 6 players in a single game. Note: Each additional player adds about 15 minutes to the total play time.

So pledge for 10 copies of Fields of Fame/Hall of Heroes and get 1 more for free. Or pledge for 10 copies of Shipwrights/Raiders/Explorers and get 1 more for free. There are a few things to keep in mind for group pledges:

  • Group pledges must be for a single-language

All shipping rates are included in each Reward Level. US, Canada, Australia, NZ, UK, Germany and France (not for Warlord) all have no additional costs above those shown on each Reward Level. For all other areas, Kickstarter will automatically add any additional cost when selecting your reward.

  • Garphill Games will handle production and fulfillment of all English versions
  • Pixie Games will handle production and fulfillment of all French versions
  • Schwerkraft-Verlag will handle production and fulfillment of all German versions
  • MeepleBR will handle fulfillment of all English versions to Brazilian backers
    All Brazilian rewards will ship from within Brazil and therefore avoid any additional freight charges to those backers

 

Risks and challenges

Having crowdfunded games in the past, I realize it can take a while from project start to completion (you getting your games). My goal is to have all games sent out before the end of November 2017. Project backers will be notified should this be delayed.
