Game of the Month
May 2007
Players compete in building a Viking empire. Piece by piece they expand their insular scenery and populate their islands with warriors, scouts, nobles, peers, goldsmiths and fishermen. They earn money and victory points, they defend against Viking attacks and they supply the population with the necessary food. Most amazing is the novel mechanism how to buy the island tiles: easy to understand but difficult to describe. In each round twelve tiles are laid out in a certain order. Their prices rise from 0 to 11 units, and on start the higher places are almost prohibitively expensive. But according to well-defined rules they get cheaper and cheaper and every player has a remarkable influence on this decline. Everything matches very well. Every player waits with eagerness for his next move. The brilliant game idea has been conceived by Michael Kiesling and Hans-im-Glück has proven with it his reputation as an excellent games publisher.
