It's the End of the World as the Norse Knew It

Nearly a decade ago, I self-published a tiny little strategy game called Fimbluvetr: Winter of Winters. It's long out of print, but over the years a few people have inquired about its availability. I have now released a free print-and-play version, which you can find under the Files section of Fimbulvetr's page on the Board Game Geek site. Ten thousand thanks to E. James Heil for allowing me to reuse the character illustrations we contracted from him way back when!
