In Blood Rage, each player controls their
own Viking clan’s warriors, leader, and ship. Ragnarök has come, and
it’s the end of the world! It’s the Vikings’ last chance to go down in a
blaze of glory and secure their place in Valhalla at Odin’s side! For a
Viking there are many pathways to glory. You can invade and pillage the
land for its rewards, crush your opponents in epic battles, fulfill
quests, increase your clan's stats, or even die gloriously either in
battle or from Ragnarök, the ultimate inescapable doom.

"Life is Battle; Battle is Glory; Glory is ALL"


Most player strategies are guided by the cards drafted at the
beginning of each of the three game rounds (or Ages). These “Gods’
Gifts” grant you numerous boons for your clan including: increased
Viking strength and devious battle strategies, upgrades to your clan, or
even the aid of legendary creatures from Norse mythology. They may also
include various quests, from dominating specific provinces, to having
lots of your Vikings sent to Valhalla. Most of these cards are aligned
with one of the Norse gods, hinting at the kind of strategy they
support. For example, Thor gives more glory for victory in battle,
Heimdall grants you foresight and surprises, Tyr strengthens you in
battle, while the trickster Loki actually rewards you for losing
battles, or punishes the winner.


Players must choose their strategies carefully during the draft
phase, but also be ready to adapt and react to their opponents’
strategies as the action phase unfolds. Battles are decided not only by
the strength of the figures involved, but also by cards played in
secret. By observing your opponent’s actions and allegiances to specific
gods, you may predict what card they are likely to play, and plan
accordingly. Winning battles is not always the best course of action, as
the right card can get you even more rewards by being crushed. The only
losing strategy in Blood Rage is to shy away from battle and a glorious death!
