The year is 878. For the past 90 years, Viking raiding parties have been terrorizing the coasts of England. These raids began as small hit-and-run engagements, but the stories of the English wealth and rich lands drove more Norsemen to join the invading hosts. Initially divided and unprepared for the onslaught, King Alfred and a newly unified English gentry need to strike back in order to save their land. In ‘878 Vikings’, players control either the invading Viking armies, comprised of Norsemen and Berserkers, or the defending English King’s Housecarl, Regional Noble Thegn troops, and local peasant Fyrd levies. This light, and fast paced multi-player game is the first in the Birth of Europe series, following the award-winning ‘1775 Rebellion’ from the Birth of Europe series. 2-4 players.
Warnings: The event was originally listed with rules of "Birth of Europe (1st)." It has been changed to "Birth of Europe (1st Edition)."
