Game Description
You and your hideous troll-friends have decided that it’s time for a career change. You are tired of guarding bridges and shaking down weary travelers all for the sake of a few clinking coins! Tolls are down, bandits are up, and besides, living under your bridge is damp and uncomfortable-—and breathing all that crumbling bridge mortar is taking a toll on your lungs...

It’s time to venture forth and find some fresh sea air! In Trollhalla, you join forces with your fellow trolls to sail the seas in search of islands filled with pillage and plunder. Crunchy livestock, nervous monks, panicked princesses, piles of gold, and casks of grog await you! But watch out for Billy Goats--if you’re not careful they will knock parts of your precious stolen cargo out of your boat!

With so many goodies lying about on these islands, it feels like you’ve died and gone to troll heaven, or perhaps someplace even better -- Trollhalla!

Object
Players take turns placing trolls on the board. Trolls emerge from below each ship’s deck ready to plunder and scout the seas of Trollhalla! Trolls placed on ships claim plunder from nearby islands when a ship sails. Trolls placed in the sea will scout for destinations and determine where these ships sail, and also award players cards that perform special actions. The player who uses his trolls to fill his private boat with the most valuable collection of plunder wins the game!

Guides and Reviews

From BoardgameNews.com:

Although Trollhalla (Z-Man Games, 2-4 players, 8+, 45-75 min) is set in the same fantasy world as Bridge Troll and shares the same artist (Ryan Laukat) and possibly the same trolls, that’s where the similarities end. Trollhalla is a pick-up-and-deliver, set-collection, big-board game where trolls take to the seas, à la Vikings, in search of plunder (rather than the more traditional method: wait under uncomfortably wet bridges for plunder to show up).

Designer Alf Seegert offers this delightful Muppet Show clip as a fine example for his game – just substitute trolls for pigs.

Alf designed Trollhalla based on his 3rd place win, TEMBO, in the 2008 Hippodice game design competition in Bochum, Germany. Trollhalla, like all of Alf's games, was designed in association with the Board Game Designers Guild of Utah.

Author's Note: the officially unrelated (but very cool) website Trollgod's Trollhalla is Ken St. Andre's official site dedicated to the role playing game Tunnels and Trolls.
