The second game in the Alfred the Great series is now on Sale
Alfred the Great: War in The West Country 876 AD
The game commences with Guthrum having captured Wareham, this game is more of a ‘what if’-what if there was no storm at swanage? What if Ubbe Ragnarson had landed a year earlier and attacked along the North Devon coastline? And what if The Britons of Cornwallum had decided to be allied with the Vikings (as speculated by some historians), would King Alfred have been able to defend against a three pronged attack? Or would Wessex have become the Daneland?
There are some new game (map) components-including the Somerset levels, iron age forts and Earl Odda of Devon takes his place as a unheralded Saxon hero.
