Just got this from Karoly Szigetvari, a Nordic-flavoured version of David Ritchie's old Albion game from SPI's Ares magazine.

It is a very handsome package for a self-published jobbie, with graphics very much in the Redmond Simonsen style. There's a little madness. Skane, for example, is located many leagues to the west of the actual place. But it seems to capture the fantasy dynamic of having armies and heroes zipping about, incorporating both the personal and epic at a single scale. I suspect you write your own narrative as it plays.

I've yet to break this one out and play. I suspect it may be a bit long and would not be surprised at a 10+ hour playing. Also the combat stuff looks as fiddlesome as the original. Howeve, this could be at the top of the pile for playing over the Easter weekend.

Seems interesting. I always wanted to design a game on the subject myself, but never got to it.

I might try to get this one on the table over the Easter weekend. Assuming I can find a partner.

Wish I could. But I'm off to Denmark over Easter.

In Denmark? Not much of a difference, eh? ;) *takes cover*

Apparently that's where the trolls live. Appropriately.
