A complete surprise of a game when I first played and knew I had to get it for the family. And the first game was a complete success!

Not good for repeated plays, but an excellent game that combines simplicity with a battle of wits. Also, it's the most family-friendly viking themed anything I've ever seen.

Played one time, but so far the initial response to this one has been very positive. Lots of player interaction, quality components, and just plain fun will keep this one in regular rotation.

Excelente jogos de locação de trabalhadores onde os jogadores escolhem secretamente onde mandaram seus viking: disputar, recolher em suas fontes naturais ou atacar os fortes dos clãs adversários. Um dos melhores jogos para 6 jogadores.

The game is good fun for 4 or 5 players as there is little down time, competition for resources and a game that progresses well to its conclusion. The usual dB style components (foam backed pieces) work well in forming the walls.

I just have to like this game, as I've worked at five of the six Iron age forts on Öland depicted on the board.

blind deployment for limited resources, recycled combat cards, fort building in darkages scandenavia (sweden?) simple and fun with very nice pieces, carefully protect good resources or concentrate on getting as much rubbish as you can to finish quickly for the 5 bonus points, ifn you have an awful combat hand talk to thor and take a chance on getting better ones (wasn't Odin the norse god of war?) a very fun, simple, fast(ish) playing, quiet cheap game worthy of any collection

I really like this game. Little bit of groupthink, little bit of hand-management. I have never seen a game likr this one.

Cool Viking fort building game! I had my eye on this game for years until I finally found it on clearance at Cardhaus and snatched it up.

It's got simultaneous action selection in both the placement of workers and as combat resolution, so if that's not your thing, stay clear. I like it though. The combat mechanic is especially clever since you trade cards with your opponent after battle. So if you lose a lot of battles early, you're likely to win some later.

We have added a ridiculous Swedish flag-adorned Viking hat as a starting player token. Starting player wears the hat!

Complete.
Played with 6 players and the variant that each player gets 3 grass, 1 wood and 1 clay to start with. Game ended in round 9 by one player with 18 bricks who finally won with 42-32-32-24-21-19.

Lots of player interaction and a nice card exchanging mechanic from the battles. Some battles are worth the loss in order to gain the other player's #6 card for a future, higher value battle.

I own the DB Spiele version which suffers from really basic component quality. The game however feels just right in the Queen version though, and the material is excellent. My 5 player game was tension filled and I wouldn't want to play with less than that as the game centers around conflicts. The way the combat cards are cycled is pretty neat.

A couple of 3/4 player games (Queen edition). Secret deployment of your viking warriors to gather resources, raid other players' villages or defend your own. Good fun out-guessing your opponents. Nice card-swapping mechanism.

Trickier than it looks at first. Maybe too much second guessing for my taste but very enjoyable non-the-less. Swapping combat cards after each battle made for some balancing and quite a lot of added spice.

The game has many interesting rhythms. You must adjust your strategy based on how many vikings you have this turn, vs how many your opponents have, how powerful your cards are, and the attractiveness of various targets. The chaos level is just right for a game of this theme and length. Finally, it rewards viking behavior. I won my first game by launching raids on all of my opponents on the last turn, and leaving no one home to defend the fortress.

A game which is foremost for those of us who like games with high interaction between the players.
This is a main feature in the game.

The game gives you a high ability to screw your fellow players.
So maybe best together with people you know that likes this type of games.
I had a big smile on my face after the first game I played.
I like interaction a lot in games.

This is an interesting game with unusual mechanics. Players secretly determine their actions, then all reveal them simultaneously. It is a nice blend between worker placement, hidden decision making, and "take that" battles (that are easy and simple to resolve). The battle system is very straight-forward, and well balanced. A very fun game that I will try to get to table as often as possible, especially since it plays up to 6.
