Northgard is a pretty great Viking real-time strategy game, but it might not be for everyone. If tabletop gaming is more your speed, you'll be happy to hear that a Northgard board game is in development!

Northgard: Uncharted Lands seeks to take the RTS experience of this PC and console game and translate it to the tabletop. Players can recruit warriors, explore the land, and build buildings on a modular board that will constantly be in flux.

This sounds like an epic experience, but it's not going to take you six hours to get through a session, either. In its current start, Northgard: Uncharted Lands will take 20 minutes per player to complete a session and will support 2–5 players in a single game. Featuring a mix of strategy and deck-building, this Northgard board game looks like it could be a ton of fun!

When Can You Get the Northgard Board Game?

This brand-new tabletop game based on Northgard is shaping up to be pretty cool. One question remains, though: when will you be able to get it?

Unfortunately, we don't know much about a potential release date just yet. The creators say that it's going to be coming to Kickstarter sometime in the Summer of 2020. Typically, a board game will take 6–12 months to be produced and ship out if the campaign is successful, so you probably won't be able to actually play this tabletop take on Viking real-time strategy until sometime in 2021.

You can learn more about the Northgard board game on its official website. If you're a PC gamer who doesn't yet own this cool RTS game, you can get it on sale and DRM-free on GOG for $14.99 or your regional equivalent. Otherwise, you can pick it up at its full price of $29.99 on Steam or the Humble Store, and console players can get it at the same price for PlayStation 4Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
