Product Description

Product Description

Each player is the leader of a band of Vikings. His task is to scout and then settle the islands off the coast of his homeland. As the Vikings uncover the size and shape of the islands, each band seeks to control as much of these new lands as possible. The bands build yards and churches and invite goldsmiths, scouts, fishermen, and nobles to settle on their island to establish the most profitable settlements. But, warriors are also necessary! As, the islands soon attract ships bound to attack them to pillage the new settlements.Author: Michael Kiesling.

UPDATE: Z-Man Games has reprinted Vikings in the same high quality as the original. I was happy to buy this new edition without having to pay out-of-print prices! My original, unaltered review of the old edition follows...

Vikings is a great game, sadly out of print. Although Z-Man Games currently holds US rights after Rio Grande didn't renew their license, they currently have no plans to reprint it and people are charging ridiculous prices for it. However, you can now play Vikings (the base game and/or the Progress/No Auction advanced rules) free at Yucata online. The rules are there too. A good way to test-drive the game, especially if you are considering paying for a copy at these prices. You can also try Hawaii and over 40 other board games out free there.

The game mechanics for Vikings are a bit similar to Hawaii (another Rio Grande game I gave a 5 star review). You are trying to build and expand five rows of islands (villages in Hawaii). Unlike Hawaii, each row only supports one kind of meeple: Warriors, Nobles, Scouts, Goldsmiths, and Fishermen. A sixth type of meeple called Boatsmen go on your home base and are used to transport other meeples to your islands if they are acquired but cannot be placed on an island immediately (or you choose to save them for later). Each round, a dozen tiles will come out, a combination of Viking ships and island pieces (lefts, middles, ends), each with a different meeple on it. You get both the tile and the meeple when you buy it. Island tiles must be placed immediately. If they cannot be, they are discarded. Meeples may be immediately placed or stored on your home base for later.

If you're into the European game craze the way my husband and I are, then go ahead and have no fear adding this one to your shelf. What we especially enjoy is the fact the game can be played within 45 min. once everyone is familiar with the rules. If you're not into long drawn out games, but still like the strategy-driven games, then Vikings is for you! I gave this to my husband for Christmas and we enjoyed playing it with family members.

This games delivers what it promises on the box cover: at about one hour you can play a complete game.

The rules are very simple and explained brilliantly in a very well designed rules book. Components are also top notch.

It is for four players maximum.

Beware that this is no "blood battle" game. It's really a fun and family game, and also a very good gateway game intro to Eurogames strategy games.

I highly recommend it.

This game was so confusing, my friend and I couldn't even figure out how to play it. There were way too many pieces and the instructions weren't clear. It gets 2 stars because it at least had a lot of colorful stuff, and I can imagine it would have been fun.
