Viking Raid

Don
Last week I was able to play a game of SAGA at Critical Hit Games.  Jim wanted to get better acquainted with the rules and test some of his Cold Wars scenario.  So we recruited two new players and started rolling dice.

We had a force of Viking raiders with Danish allies attacking a Saxon village.  The Saxon lord was on a trip around his lands collecting tribute.  With a threat of Vikings afoot, he brought some hired Irish mercenaries with him.

The Viking force had to attack the buildings in the village, defeat the defenders, and collect bags of loot.  The Saxon side had to protect the village and prevent the raiders from running off with the loot.  The Vikings managed to sack two buildings and grab two bags of loot. 
The Viking have broken into one building looking for loot

They  started to withdraw, sacrificing a couple units to slow up the Saxon pursuit.  It was enough to allow them to exit with 50% of the available loot.

The Danes have grabbed some loot and leave a rear guard to slow pursuit

Overall, a great game.  The two new players picked up the rules and using the battle board dice fairly quickly.
