Nordguard Card Game

Gather some friends to play as an anthropomorphized sled dog rescue team, overcoming cannibalistic strays and a landscape as capricious as it is lethal. Only your wits and your gear stand between you and certain disaster. Quick-reference instructions provide the rules in minutes, while a scalable difficulty curve provides a challenge for everyone from pups to even the most veteran sled dogs. A randomized map ensures no two missions will ever be the same.

Based on the award-winning graphic novel Nordguard: Across Thin Ice, this set comes packed with over 120 illustrations by the artists Tess Garman & Teagan Gavet, as well as four custom-etched dice.

This game contains:

  • One complete 130-card deck consisting of:
    • 50 Location Cards
    • 50 Event Cards
    • 23 Item Cards
    • 7 Character Cards
  • 4 laser-etched custom dice with Nordguard logo
  • Playing instructions

Playing The Game

Each game starts by shuffling a deck of Location cards and laying them out to form a different map for each play through. The team then studies this map while selecting their Character and Item cards. Each character has unique skills and abilities to give the team an edge in various areas. Various Item cards equip the team against the dangers of the landscape and its inhabitants. The team travels in a group and must make it from their start point at Frontier to the Destination card within a limited number of turns. Each turn, the team draws an Event card — which may help or hinder them. Your team wins or loses depending on whether you all reach the destination in time.
