Our friend and fellow troll lover Alf Seegert is set to release his second board game through Z-Man Games.  Trollhalla will be released this October and will be available for $40.

You and your hideous troll-friends have decided that it’s time for a career change. You are tired of guarding bridges and shaking down weary travelers all for the sake of a few clinking coins! Tolls are down, bandits are up, and besides, living under your bridge is damp and uncomfortable-—and breathing all that crumbling bridge mortar is taking a toll on your lungs…

It’s time to venture forth and find some fresh sea air! In Trollhalla, you join forces with your fellow trolls to sail the seas in search of islands filled with pillage and plunder. Crunchy livestock, nervous monks, panicked princesses, piles of gold, and casks of grog await you! But watch out for Billy Goats–if you’re not careful they will knock parts of your precious stolen cargo out of your boat!

With so many goodies lying about on these islands, it feels like you’ve died and gone to troll heaven, or perhaps someplace even better — Trollhalla!

Players take turns placing trolls on the board. Trolls emerge from below each ship’s deck ready to plunder and scout the seas of Trollhalla! Trolls placed on ships claim plunder from nearby islands when a ship sails. Trolls placed in the sea will scout for destinations and determine where these ships sail, and also award players cards that perform special actions. The player who uses his trolls to fill his private boat with the most valuable collection of plunder wins the game!

Trollhalla takes place in the same game world as Bridge Troll and also features the same artist, Ryan Laukat which is a great thing!  Trollhalla is based on Alf’s 3rd place Hippodice winner, TEMBO!  We’ll have more on Trollhalla when the release date gets closer.  You can also watch for updates on Board Game Geek and Board Game News.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. Trollhalla in the Corner!

    Very cool stuff, I might have to check this out, always looking for a good board game to add to my massive collection. And with a name like Alf Seegert, he must be from my family’s homeland or one of those other nearby Scandinavian countries.
