You may remember my coverage of an iPad game called Viking Lords a while ago, a game that bore a striking resemblance to BattleLore.

Well Fantasy Flight thinks the game is too similar, and is now taking legal action against Puffin Software and it’s owner, Johannes Paivinen. As of right now Viking Lords is still available in the iTunes App Store, but there’s no saying how long that may last.

You can check out the complaint filed by Fantasy Flight here.

I’ll be interested to see how this pans out. In an ideal scenario I’d love to see Fantasy Flight turn this into something positive and get the beginnings of an official BattleLore app going. What’s probably going to happen is that Viking Lords will disappear off the face of the planet and that’ll be the last we hear of it.
