Empires of the North

Settlers from three Nordic empires have decided to start their voyages and set sail for new lands in hopes of finding more resources, and increasing their opportunities to expand. Building new structures, taking advantage of upcoming events, and outsmarting opponents is their path to greatness. You don’t know who your opponent might be; it might even be a different clan from your nation. Even so, you will do what is necessary. Your current lands are meager, and the resources scarce, so you’ll need to work hard to acquire the food and resources necessary to thrive!

Empires of the North is a card game in which players lead one of six clans from three different factions. The game plays out over a series of rounds, during which players explore new lands, construct buildings, trade resources, and sail to new lands with the aim of either conquering, or pillaging to gain more goods! Each action draws the clans closer to becoming the greatest empire! The game ends in the same round that any player reaches the 25 victory points mark.

Empires of the North is aimed both at the new players and also all fans who love Imperial Settlers and are looking for a great engine building experience. The box contains 6 unique, ready to play decks featuring Vikings, Scots and Inuit clans. Each deck offers a great variety of strategies and excellent replayability value.

The game features stunning artwork by Rafał Kucharski, 100+ custom wooden pieces and additional engaging scenario based solo variant (4 different scenarios included in the base box!).

    Hello there.

    My copy doesn´t include any “Round/Action Review” card but a BGG user has posted a picture here https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2250222/article/38313872#38313872

    Are those included in newer print-runs or editions? It´d be cool if you make them available as a free goodie in all the supported languages so we can print our own copies with some level of quality.

    How are Raze tokens scored at end of game? The rule book does not mention them directly. Are they allied with other goods? The FAQ online treats them like gold :1 VP each.

  3. I have a doubt about the action pawns….if I have a clan action pawn in an action tile, for example the Collect tile. Can I put a the second action pawn in the same action tile, so that Ican collect twice?

    I would like to know if it possible to release a bundle package again after it has been removed from the offers or not? (because I miss Empires of the North and I don’t know if there is a possibility to be back soon), and when the offers will be changed in EU shop? because there is no date when the offer will be ended.
    Best regards

      Info from the store: Sorry Salman, but Roman Banners are generally sold out, we’ve got the last boxes of Barbarian Hordes and we don’t plan to make any bundles in the closest future.
