Last week we looked at Boda Games on 2019 – Part 1 for Boda Games in the year 2019. We talked about the artwork guidelines project, the new website and more. But we left out one crucial part – the games! As anyone who works in the industry can confirm, the games are what makes all of our jobs fun. For us at Boda Games we manufacture all types of games. The variety in games that passes through our hands in a year is huge. And every now and then when we get a chance, we sit down and play them! So let us introduce some of our favourite games from 2019.
Reavers of Midgard
BGG says: Reavers of Midgard is a single worker placement game with elements of set collection, dice combat and engine building set in the Champions of Midgard universe.
In Reavers of Midgard, you’ll be looking to gain glory by raiding nearby villages for their riches, sacking well-fortified castles and battling both man and monster on the open seas. You’ll not only need to take your rowdy crew of vikings and the food needed to keep them happy along for the ride but you’ll also have to recruit a crew of elite warriors – the Reavers.
