Our game HIRÞ just been nominated for the “Most Anticipated Abstract Boardgame of 2016” at BGG.
The game is doing really well as it has also bagged the 7th most anticipated abstract boardgame in the world, 2016! It has also received two great reviews by Another Dungeon and Beards and Boardgames.
HIRÞ is a two-player abstract strategy game were two leaders (Viking Kings) fight in an archipelago. The first to push the other player’s king off the board wins.
The game has been produced in wood and cloth, with deluxe versions made of leather and iron. The design idea was to make a game that the Vikings could have played during their travels. According to playtesters, this is a huge success as almost 100% of them believe that this was actually a replica of a real Viking game.
The second ambition was to make a game with as few spaces as possible (number of squares) that would be interesting to play. Although it has only 11 squares, the combination of three different abilities of the pieces and the mechanic of using moves to build stronger units makes the gameplay challenging. Play time: 20-60 minutes.
On your marks, get playing!
