Champions of Midgard (formerly Defenders of Nidaros) is a middleweight, Viking-themed, worker placement game. Players are leaders of Viking clans who have travelled to an embattled Viking harbour town to help defend it against the threat of trolls, draugr, and other mythological Norse beasts. By defeating these epic creatures, players gain glory and the favour of the gods. When the game ends, the player who has earned the most glory earns the title of Jarl and is recognized as a champion of Midgard!
Placing workers allows for the collection of resources and warriors, which players may then send on journeys to neighbouring villages or across the sea to defeat monsters and gain the glory they need for victory. Resources are used to to carve runes, build ships, and feed your followers. Viking warriors (custom dice) do battle with the myriad enemies the town faces.
This expansion adds a fifth player! In addition, there are brand new enemies to defeat, land journeys to traverse, and archer dice to liberate and recruit to help you in battle!
While The Dark Mountains expansion extends the current game with more players and new challenges to defeat, the Valhalla expansion adds new mechanics in the form of a new resource to manage, secondary leader abilities, and leader dice which join on the battlefield. Now when your warriors die in battle, they help you by gaining favor in Valhalla. Will you use your fallen warriors to defeat the epic monsters or will you gain favor with the Valkyrie and receive their help in the form of blessings, artifacts, and powerful berserkers and shield warriors?
City of Gears is a unique steampunk game of exploration, area control, worker placement, and engine building. From your incredible Factory, you must race to claim ownership over the magnificent ruins of an abandoned clockwork metropolis. Each game plays in under an hour, and because only nine of the city tiles (from dozens available) are randomly chosen and placed each game, no two games ever play the same.
Each turn, you roll a number of production dice and activate City Tiles, then you move your automaton workers and perform a variety of actions (such as drawing and placing gears to reactivate areas of the city, sabotaging opponents, and activating unique steam powers) as determined by your resources. Along the way, you will develop your Factory with special powers which set it apart and provide you with powerful bonuses. As the city is revealed and its abilities are discovered, players must concoct plans to accrue prestige and hinder opponents so that once Opening Day arrives, they will emerge victorious! Do you have what it takes to set the City of Gears in motion?
