Description Edit | History

Will Thor survive the challenge of the trickster, Loki? Will the Valkyries overtake Odin?

In the oldest poem of Norse Mythology, the "Völuspá" tells the story of the endless struggle of powerful gods, dangerous creatures, and forgotten races. Which beings will dominate?

In Völuspá the game, the story will unfold differently each time, as a new force rises in dominance! Players take turns playing tiles with twelve different characters and creatures of Norse Mythology, using the power of these tiles to block, capture or intimidate in order to control other tiles and score points. The player who scores the most points by dominating other tiles wins the game.

Völuspá – a reimagining and retheming of the previously released game Kachina – is an easy-to-learn, tile-laying game that features great depth of play for 2 to 5 players. Völuspá includes the 25 tile expansion module "Saga of Edda", which offers even more strategic opportunities and replayability.
