One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Z-Man Games Post New Video for Vikings

Vikings Z-Man Games

I have quite a burning passion for two things: vikings and pirates. When I can have the chance to play games that involve either one – or even both – I get super excited. Z-Man Games is working on releasing Vikings, a strategic board game in which you’re tasked with the scouting and settling of different islands off of the cost of the mainland. The game won’t be releasing until May 21st, but Z-Man is hoping to drum up some excitement for the game before its street date. One of the ways they’re doing so is by releasing the video you see below.

The video shows a group of heavily armed men racing to an undisclosed location. Judging by their garb, you can clearly tell these guys are supposed to be vikings. They’re racing to pillage it would seem, which is quite the viking thing to do. They arrive at their location, where the scene is somewhat broken by a screen door that has to be opened, and when they finally get inside the building they join arms to…play the Vikings board game.

The video is short and sweet, but it’s pretty finny. The actors all have crazy game faces on and I swore for a moment they were going to rip the game components apart. Lucky they remained in-tact, and the viking group got to get their game on. Check out the video below and for more information on Vikings check out its official page.
