Power and Glory – or Untold Sorrow: Which Shall Be Your Destiny?

Glory and blood are at stake in this lauded and highly sought-after grail game. Fire and Axe is a strategy game full of raiding, trading and ultimate control, which can live on reputation alone. But the latest version features striking, completely redone artwork full of grit and beauty - players will transcend into the Viking world, in all of its tempest glory. Included are 70 minis, each new sculpt has striking detail and is sure to make even the most dedicated of gamers delighted.

Fire & Axe seats three to five players, and is playable in roughly 90 minutes. Each round, players take a turn that consists of seven in-game days to load their ships and send them out to trade with or conquer Europe. There is also a unique mission system that gives all players a chance to complete tasks on mission cards, which when completed, awards bonuses that can tip the scales of battle.

Featuring a unique wind mechanic and an innovative semi-cooperative quest system, Fire & Axe pairs pulse-pounding action with merciless strategy and tactics to deliver a game worthy of the mightiest warriors.
