Episode 282: Raiders of the North Sea
Release Date: February 1, 2018
Running Time: 67 min.
The North Sea Saga is a trilogy of games that follow the progress of the Viking culture in 3 different eras using 3 very different types of game mechanics but united by art and history.
In Raiders of the North Sea you play a viking warrior raiding unsuspecting settlements. Assemble a crew, collect provisions and journey north to plunder gold, iron and livestock... even if it ends in a glorious death!
The game is a brilliant balance of strategy and simplicity. Start with a worker, do an action, pick up a worker (and possibly do a second action).
It is a perfect introductory worker placement game. In fact it might be THE perfect way to teach someone the basics of the genre.
And by Odin's beard, that makes it very worthy of our Spiel of Approval!
