about the game

Do you like Vikings? Do you love board games? Then grab your axe and join us!

Althingi is a quick set-up, fast-play game of strength and influence for 2-4 players based in Viking-Age Iceland. Each player takes on the role of a powerful Chieftain and tries to take control of the annual gathering known as the Althingi through good old-fashioned bribery, coercion, and intimidation. 

    • 1-4 Players
    • Ages 12+
    • 30-40 Minutes

Game includes:

    • 76 cards
    • 12-page Rulebook
    • First Player Token

Note to Players:

The aesthetic of this game is gritty and raw with striking original illustrations by Lada Shustova. We paid special attention to historical details such as clothing, weapons, and bartering goods, so rest assured that there are no horned helmets in this game! If you’ve visited Iceland then you’ll recognize the landscape art as the fields of Thingvellir. And Viking history buffs might recognize the meaning of the two runes used in the game, symbols for Strength and for Influence.
