Champions of Midgard, designed by Ole Steiness, is a Viking-themed game designed by a Danish game designer. There is no one better suited to bring the world of the Vikings to life than one who lives in Scandinavia. Champions is a worker placement game where players collect warriors (dice) in order to slay monsters, draugrs, and trolls. Players will board long ships and must bring enough men and supplies in order to survive the whale road and bring home glory.

Our discussion with Ole focused on the origins of this awesome worker placement game. We learned about what parts of the game had to be cut to make it the game published today. We also learned how Ole hooked up with Grey Fox Games, who did a good job of bringing this one to our tables.
