“On the 8th of June 793AD the quiet monastery of Lindisfarne on the north-east coast of England was attacked and plundered by sea borne raiders. The Age of the Vikings had begun. For more than two centuries, the fury of the northmen was unleashed across the British Isles, Normandy, and anywhere else their longboats took them. Wars raged between Vikings, Normans, Anglo-Danes, Irish, Welsh, Franks, Bretons, and the Princes of Rus among others. Finally, the Normans would achieve dominance on top of Senlac hill at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.”
~ ENTER: SAGA ~
SAGA is set in the Viking age where strength and bravery were worth more than a thousand men. Dark times that brought us tales and deeds of legendary heroes like Harold Godwinson, Ragnar Lothbrok, Brian Boru, and William the Bastard. SAGA’s innovative gaming system is simple and intuitive. It’s easy to pick up as you need less than 30 models to begin.
“2014 has arrived, and with it comes a new year of great games! January starts the year with a month of open gaming for not only Flames of War, but our newest historical game SAGA!
