Midgard-Championsseems to be coming to PC/Mac
Thanks to the eagle eyes of aScott Nash, we notice thatgray fox gamesit's full of cunning little demons. Why do you ask? Because of its Viking-style worker placement gameMidgard-ChampionsIt's currently on Steam awaiting the Early Access release and no one has let us know.

Due to Gray Fox's lack of information, we have a serious lack of information. Probably not my best line, but you get the point.

The game is developed byMidGameLaband will apparently be released for both PC and Mac. Due to the lack of information mentioned above, we don't know if there are any plans to bring it to mobile devices.

The old Jarl is dead and your once prosperous harbor has fallen into a state of disrepair. Fearsome creatures arrive in droves, wreaking havoc and destruction before them. Trolls are attacking the city. Draugr terrorizes nearby towns. Monsters attack travelers and merchants. People are suffering and you can be their champion.

Champions of Midgard combines worker placement and data-driven combat to create an exciting and strategic experience. Recruit warriors, earn powerful runes and see the future; then send your faithful fighters on quests to defeat wild and mythical beasts. Reach maximum fame to become the new Jarl and be recognized as the Champion of Midgard!

Champions of Midgard is a Viking Age worker placement game with dice-based combat. Taking on the role of competing Viking leaders, players hunt trolls, fight Draugr and slay mythical Norse beasts in their quest for glory!

- This is the official digital adaptation of the famous board game "Champions of Midgard" by Gray Fox Games
- Possibility to play with AI
- Local multiplayer
- animated background
- Rating system included

I don't see online multiplayer listed, so maybe CoM isn't an online affair, which is weird for a board game. Then again, maybe it was planned, but they still haven't ironed out the details. I would tell you if it weren't for that damn lack of information that everyone is talking about.

We will be contacting Russia and see if we can trace any information and as always let you know as soon as possible.

Gaia Projectand table DIGIDICES
This one is definitely a long way off when we'll see him live, but it looks likeY with your fingers, developer of the digital version ofthe mystical land, has acquired the rights to bring its sci-fi cousin before our eyes as well.

Afterthis topic(which caught our attention as readersTysen Treib), DIGIDDICED owns the digital rightsGaia Projectbut he has a few other things to do before he starts coding. Little things like the digital version ofBurgundy's castlesand other secret projects that we still don't know about.

So there isn't a lot of information, but it's nice to know it's archived and being edited by people who did a good job with your fantasy ancestor.

Gem Rushis (was) available for PC/Mac/Linux and iOS/Android
amovictory point gamesmostly because they make great solo games and I'm all alone with no friends. One of the latest games to be released in their "Premium" series isGem Rush (second edition)This will have you collecting gems and spending them to dig and expand your mine, collecting VP along the way. It's a fun game that can be played cooperatively or competitively.

It was mentioned when I was on Kickstarter that a digital version was in the works, but I completely forgot about it until I came across it a few weeks ago. Since last year there has been a digital version for PC/Mac/Linux as well as iOS and Android, which is really cool. In fact, it's one of the most polished and beautiful board game ports you'll find on any platform.
