The countdown begins!
Make sure you mark February 19th 2015 10/9c on your calendar as that is the confirmed day that History Channel’s Vikings returns to our screens! To help you out, we have just added a widget to the top left hand side of this blog so you can keep updated every time you visit us.
If you want all the spoilers on Season 3, make sure you check out all the news we have posted about Ragnar, Legatha, Rollo, Floki, Bjorn and the rest of the Vikings gang by checking out our articles here.
So far we know that Ragnar (played by Aussie actor Travis Fimmel) will travel to Paris to continue his raiding ways. There is also a few new characters popping up in Season 3 of Vikings. Fans of FX’s vampire series, The Strain will recognise Kevin Durand. In Vikings, he will play a character called The Wanderer. Not a lot is known yet about the role he will play, but there is some suggestion he will either be involved in or be present for the death of a major Vikings character in Season 3. So make sure you keep the tissues on hand because the death of a Vikings character always hits us fans hard!

Ragnar, a would-be Viking chieftain, longs to fulfill his destiny as an explorer and conqueror, alongside his ambitious brother Rollo and loyal wife Lagertha. But as Ragnar leads daring raids in distant realms across the ocean, treacherous forces in his Norse homeland conspire against him. Faced with shocking betrayals and the temptations of a mysterious seductress, Ragnar must wage war on the battlefield — and within himself — to protect his freedom, family and life.

But Catalyst Game Labs will release Jarl: The Vikings Tile Laying Game first:
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!
