A look inside the box of the board game Skora from Inside the Box Games. This is an abstract card-driven game with a unique take on the Viking theme.

While I have played a number of Viking themed games, with my current favourite being Raiders of the North Sea, this is the first Viking game I’ve seen about fishing. What’s your favourite Viking themed game? Let us know in the comments!
