What's Your Game plans to release Asgard, a new norse-themed board game, next month. The game was premiered at last October’s Spiel fair in Essen.
In Asgard, the players try to predict the outcome of the soon-to-come Ragnarok. By supporting one of the gods, a player gains access to that god’s powers, which can be used to influence the final battle or build temples. After five rounds of play, the gods do battle, and those players that have supported the victorious gods earn rewards.
Asgard combines a number of game mechanics, including simultaneous action selection, worker placement, and combo building. It is designed for two to four players, and plays in one to two hours. The game was designed by Pierluca Zizzi and illustrated by Mariano Iannelli.
