About our game

The player will be taking charge of a faction, either Viking, Frankian or English which they will follow through history. Letting you experience what happened in the past according to historical records. Battles take place online and in scenarios on a turn based board. You will lead your forces to your enemies lines and holding your morale high you will dominate the fighting! This innovative game puts historical characters in cards, where moving and combat happens on a grid-based battlefield. The inspiration comes from: Magic, Civilizations, Age of Empires and Heroes.
