Champions of Midgard Expansions Valhalla and Dark Mountain Unboxing

Welcome to the Fluffy Meeple”s very first unboxing. Took me long enough to get there, huh? We received the expansions for Champions of Midgard from Grey Fox Games this past Friday. The two expansions are called The Dark Mountains and Valhalla. The new box, which I believe was a Kickstarter exclusive, is able to fit both the expansions and the base game all in one box! Woot! The art on the new box and within the expansions is very well done. Overall component quality is top notch.

This is what awaited me as I opened the box for the first time. So mysterious… also, a cheat sheet for all of the Kickstarter goodies and promos we got.

As with the base game, we got lots of punchboards. All of the components are nice and chunky, so you don’t have to worry too much about wearing them down quickly.

Here is the game board for the Dark Mountains expansion. It’s fairly simple – most of the stuff that came from The Dark Mountains was “more stuff” – expanded journey cards, more monsters, a new warrior (dice) class, and some other things to add variability to the base game.

The Valhalla Game Board blew me away at first. Look at it! It’s SO PRETTY. And the game play – oh man. Expect a nice big review soon, that’s all I’m saying.

One of the many things that Grey Fox did well with this expansion is the insert. The insert organizes things well and everything fits from the base game. Grey Fox, teach some of the rest of the industry how to make their inserts, kthx.
