Jarl: The Vikings Tile Laying Game from Catalyst Game Labs

Need something to fill in the time until Season 3 of History Channel’s Vikings starts again in the summer of 2015? How about Vikings: The Board Game?

Catalyst Game Labs have announced they have licensed rights to Vikings from MGM Consumer Products. This is a division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc., who produce merchandise on behalf of the show. The board game will be a strategy game for 2-5 players with the premise based around having to acquire resources over winter and then persuading characters such as Ragnar, Lagertha, Rollo, Floki, etc to join them in their summer raids. However, the board game is not due to be released until after Catalyst Game Labs release Jarl: The Vikings Tile Laying Game. This game is based on their successful tile game called The Duke and will be released sometime towards the end of 2014:

In the long winters between raiding seasons, warriors keep their intellect sharp through games of wits and chance. Ragnar, Rollo, Floki and even the Earl challenge each other to this game of stone placement filled with tactics and subtle maneuvering for victory.

In Jarl: The Vikings Tile Laying Game, players move their tiles around the board and flip them over after each move. Each tile’s side shows a different movement profile. If you end your movement in a square occupied by an opponent’s tile, you capture that tile. Capture your opponent’s Jarl to win!
