each side. Viking Siege combines simple
rules with challenging play. Strategy

army lays siege to a king and his
warriors in their stronghold. The king
must try to break out with the help of
his warriors and the opposing forces must
try to surround and capture the king.
Viking Siege features include:
- A powerful game engine that connects
you to a number of mysterious legendary
opponents from another world.
- The choice to play your friends, using
the game interface.
- An extensive tutorial, F1 triggered
help screens, lots of interesting
historical and mythical references, hints
during play, save and load games, and

Siege opponent to make the best move they
have thought of so far.
