Z-Man Games has announced that it will be reprinting Michael Kiesling’s classic Vikings board game.  The popular game, first published by Hans im Gluck in 2007 with an English edition from Rio Grande Games, is out-of-print in North America with good condition examples of the game going for big bucks on Ebay.  Z-Man’s edition of the Vikings board game will ship to retail in the spring of 2014.
Designed for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up, Vikings is a fast-paced economic board game that takes six rounds (about 60 minutes) to play.  Vikings is not about conquest and pillage, rather it a strategy game that rewards clever use of resources.  The unique feature of the auction and tile placement game is its pricing wheel, which gives the game several delightful levels of complexity, which can be enhanced even more using the rules of the "advanced" game.
