Join the Beta for ‘Valhalla: Road to Ragnarok’, an Upcoming Card Game With Hex Grids

I know a few people around here probably did a spit take at that headline, as it seems like the combination of strategic card gameplay and hex grids is is a siren song for iOS gamers. Well, not a whole heck of a lot of details have been made public just yet about the upcoming Valhalla: Road to Ragnarok, but the things that have been teased in their beta trailer is pushing all my buttons. Take a look:

Aside from lane-based card battles and conquering a hex grid to expand your Viking kingdom, you’ll also form alliances and raid other players to challenge their decks with your own. It also sounds like there’s a bit of a rock paper scissors system between the three tribes in the game, which include the Swedish, Danish, and Icelandic vikings.

If this at all sounds like something you’re interested in, head into our forums to help beta test. If you’ve never joined a TouchArcade beta test before, it’s a great way to get a super early look at a game and have a very real impact on making a game better, or something you think is more fun. I honestly wish I had more time to do things like this, but, the fire hose of new iOS game releases never stops.
