Day 2 of the 30 days, 30 ideas challenge where I create 30 ideas for games over the next 30 days. See other days here.
Game type: Social deduction, card / board game.
A Norse/viking themed game with leader taking out the evil Priest of Hati, who is trying to bring the end of the world.
Other characters could include the “Child of Loki” who uses tricks to confuses players and the “Follower of Balder” who tries to disrupt the evil characters through different magical etc.
Could also be a quest style system with a board giving it more depth where players have to overcome a certain number of quests / turns to survive the winter or to invade and pillage a different land (whilst also trying to work out who the evil guy is).
