Valhalla's Gate pits warbands of eight or nine humans, elves or dwarves against each other in a race for the rune stone that will admit them to Valhalla. Designed for 25mm or 28mm miniatures, it features an easy-to-learn rules system that offers the option of either a one-night game or a full-on campaign, complete with character advancement.
A card-based initiative system makes Valhalla's Gate fast-paced and fun, and the game is designed with optional 'add on' rules that add layers of complexity for more experienced players. The rules system includes characters who are shape-shifters, 25 different runic spells that add magic to the combat, stats for 12 monsters drawn from Norse mythology, rules for inclement weather, and 25 different scenarios.
