Blood Rage is a war board game where 2-4 players aged 14 years or over will fight to secure a place in Valhalla. Plan your strategy by choosing between cards drafted at the start of each round and be ready to adapt to the opponents strategy as the action unfolds.
Most cards are aligned with a Norse God, an example of this is that Tyr strengthens you in battle. Throughout the game you will be in control of your clan and the actions they take such as invading land, fulfilling quests and crushing opponents. However, winning may not always be the best course of action so be careful with your decisions and never shy away from battle!
