ic Lang’s Blood Rage, published by CMON, is an aggressive area control game set in the Norse mythological time of Ragnarok. As one of four Viking factions, players fight to control territory across the map. The player with the most victory points wins the game.
Blood Rage is split across three ages, where the players start by drafting a hand of eight cards. Each player keeps one and passes the rest to the next player. These cards give bonuses in combat, upgrade abilities, recruiting monsters or allow players to go on quests, which in-turn give victory point bonuses. After selecting six cards for the upcoming round, the age begins. Play moves around the table with factions taking turns spending ‘rage’ to being Vikings onto the table locations, pillaging villages or altering stats.
Blood Rage can be enhanced with the Fifth Player Expansion adding a new player faction and miniatures, making for an even more chaotic battle! Gods of Asgard brings two of six Norse deities to the map, which radically alters location rules allowing for more gameplay variance for experienced players.
