Adventures in the Dark Ages

Look what arrived in the post yesterday!



Along with two sets of Saga dice (Viking and Anglo-Danish) and the limited edition Sven Forkbeard figure.

However, my initial reaction was slightly "oh, is that it?". I paid £50 for a 75 page softback rule book, 4 cardboard army rosters, 2 sets of 8 dice and a metal Viking warlord figure. Hmmm. So I hope the game proves to be as good as all the hype.

I haven't had time to read it yet - only a quick flick through - but the production quality does look high with lots of full colour photos, graphics, etc.

I am very interested in what you think of the rules. We are using Strandhogg but I am keen to try Saga.

Add me to the list - I've been wondering if these were the Dark Ages rules I have been looking for - so very interested in your thoughts!

I'm probably gonna buy these as well, but £50 is a heeeellll of a lot of money for a book and some dice, surly the dice are made of gold or something?????
