Viking Raiders

I was really pleased to win a virtually new copy of the Standard Games Viking Raiders board game, which was originally published way back in 1987 as a spin off from Cry Havoc.  Although I played Cry Havoc, Siege and Samurai Blades to death when I was at school, I never managed to get my hands on a copy of Viking Raiders or Outremer, so its great to have a second chance.
The excellent Cry Havoc fan site has all of these games and their components available as free downloads but I'd rather save on the printer ink and get an original copy of the map boards, rules and counters. I'm sure the boys will enjoy playing this classic beer and pretzels game as well, having really enjoyed the other Cry Havoc games in my dog-eared collection.


  1. Great to find some old-school games like this! Thanks for the link :-)

  2. Fantastic! I've got all of them bar Viking Raiders and Samurai Blades, but it is the Viking one I'd want more than anything!
