Shipwrights of the North Sea

NZ$ 73,642

1,301

Note: $44 NZD = Approx 27 EUR / 37 USD.

Shipwrights of the North Sea is set in the early years of the Viking Age, circa 900 AD. As Viking shipwrights, players compete to build the greatest fleet on the North Sea. Players must collect oak, wool and iron, as well as getting other craftsmen on board to help. Gold is a precious commodity, and must be spent wisely. As you would expect, the island is filled with an array of characters, bad and worse. Better hope they're on your side!

The aim of Shipwrights of the North Sea is to be the player with the most Victory Points at the game’s end. Points are gained by constructing various Ships and Buildings. The game ends after the round where 1 or more players constructs their 4th ship.

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 May. Project backers will be notified should this be delayed.
