In the distant past the Vikings came upon a great, hidden and uninhabited island, its verdant lands rich in resources. The Vikings hid the island’s location from the rest of the known world, killing all those who stumbled upon it. Soon after, many great clans established settlements across the island. Then the true master of the island revealed himself: Deep below the earth’s surface lay Ymir, the powerful Jotunn of old, slumbering since time began. Sensing the Vikings’ trespass, the giant awoke enraged and emerged a juggernaut of destruction as he rampaged across the island.
Skálds from the various settlements soon discovered how to control Ymir in a limited way. Though the Jotunn was weak of mind, he was strong in will and his appetite for destruction unquenchable. Consumed with greed, rival Skálds turned the lumbering colossus against their enemies in a race to conquer the island and seize the riches of the other settlements.
Rampaging Jotunn is a competitive fast paced board game for 2 players in which each both players create the island they will be playing on where they will populate it with opposing villages and armies. Each player controls an army of Vikings trying to protect their villages while trying to destroy their opponents villages, at the same time the Jotunn rampages across the island destroying everything in sight.
Players use cards to influence the giant and direct him towards your opponents armies and villages. They also use cards to move their armies into battle across the island. The last player with villages on the board wins! Rampaging Jotunn is a half hour long game and is for players 8 and up!
Rampaging Jotunn features illustrations by the award winning artist, Nicolas Giancondino.
