Fjords - Grail Games
« on: October 26, 2020, 12:58:40 PM »
Long time HiG / Rio Grande fans will know of Fjords
https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/15511/fjords

Well Grail Games is working on a new edition, new artwork and co-designed with Phil Walker-Harding, who will be adding some content, while maintaining the original gameplay.  Sounds promising!

Increasing player count from 2 to 4 players.
PWH is producing 5 mini expansions that add flavour to the game.

Heard this yesterday, I'm beyond excited! Granted I should watch a video again to see if I'm still interested..

This was/is one of my grail games from when I was first getting into board games. Hearing it's finally coming back with my favorite designer and a favorite artist on board is a great match for me. I'm glad it's still playable in the same way, and also glad it now goes up to 4 (I rarely play with just 2).

Wasn't too much in the video other than what I mentioned above.  Hopefully some more information and images soon.  No doubt it'll be super popular simply because of the artist!

Looks like Fjords is coming to Kickstarter on the 23rd Feb. Much sooner than I was expecting.

There's a news post on BGG, but doesn't give much away:

Thank you

I actually had anticipation building for about 4 days before 23 Feb, went to Kickstarter several times on day confused as to why I could not find it..  then eventually I clicked your previous link and read the other threads to see it was actually this month

Haven’t played it but given the interest here and at BGG I figured I’d try and be a ‘day-one backer’ for it and give it a go

I did too, got quite excited on the 23rd of Feb!


Sorry for the confusion.

This dropped on the twitters:

 The Water Rune - Laguz
During the Exploration Phase, place the Laguz rune onto the tile depicting only water.
During scoring, any viking or longhouse on a tile adjacent to the Laguz rune stone scores one additional point.

I am glad you shared this! I passed over this game in the past solely because it was only two players (I am rarely in a situation to play two player games with the size of my family and gaming community ;D). However, I like the Catanish-Carc vibes it gives off visually. I think I will purchase the new one and give it a go.

And pledge level info:

3 new add-ons with the Jarl pledge:
➡ The Secret Runes: more possibilities for viking placements.
➡ Epic duel: single color components for each player using the larger 4 player board!
➡ Deluxe rune stones https://t.co/yn7tHmAo8p
