The Vikings Are Coming…Fire & Axe To Release From IDW Games This May


Who doesn't love a good Viking + Tabletop board game combo? I know I do! Legendary game, Fire & Axe has long been out of print and has thus created a cult-like reputation in the marketplace. Starting this May, fans new and old will be able to dive into this updated version of the game. From IDW Games and Pandasaurus Games, this new edition of Fire & Axe will feature updated art and more than 90 brand-new sculpted miniatures.

Molly Wardlaw of Pandasaurus Games shared,

"Fire & Axe has long been a grail game for serious gamers. We're overjoyed to be giving it new life. Get ready for phenomenal new art, which fans are already raving about.  From the scintillating box art to gorgeous card designs, to jaw dropping minis, we've carefully updated every aspect of the design of this classic hit—to make for something even better."

The object of the game is to bring victory to your clans by racing across Europe, pillaging, plundering, and conquering as a Viking Warrior. You can play with three to five players, and the game time is approximately 90 minutes. For those of you who have never played, here's a gameplay video of the older version to give you a preview before it's release in May. Bonus: If you pre-order the game you will get three different Viking miniatures to add to the 90 that comes with the game! For more information about Fire & Axe visit IDW Games website.
