Ah Vikings, from the words of Champions of Midgard, I love these infamous villagers love to fight trolls and kill other beasts, but Raiders of the North Sea paint a bit more realistic. Here, they weren’t fighting monsters, they were just attacking the supposed innocent monastery and attacking fortress for fun. Yes, just like the good, properly raised Vikings, your main job in life is to gather crews and then raid through the different levels, villages and monasteries at the top of the board all in the name of glorious gifts. And a glorious victory score
But before I go any further, I should point out that Raiders of the North Sea is part of the trilogy, and even if it doesn’t have a comprehensive story or anything, there is a little box called RuneSaga that will link Shipwrights. of the North Sea, North Sea’s Raiders and Explorers of the North Sea are the only epic series in which the final winner will be whoever scores the most in all three games.
Let’s go back to this You start the game as a basic, lone Viking worker and love the standard worker position game where you place them on an area in a village and proceed as shown. You will then go pick up workers from elsewhere in the village and do that too, putting the newly acquired workers in front of you for the next round.
Support This is the fact that you can only place your Viking workers on the empty area within the village at the bottom of the board, and you can only catch the workers that other people have previously placed. But that’s not all, because many spaces require one of three different worker colors, and because they all start with basic black workers, some action and raid gaps may not be accessible. Until the gray and white workers begin to appear and will not appear. Until the first part of the raid is finished.
This is twofold; First of all, it creates a good rhythm for the game with new, better options and more challenging attacks over time. Another thing is, how does it affect your long-term planning? It’s not like you won’t have a long-term strategy – you can most certainly do. But when other players enter the area you want or switch out existing workers, you have to quickly rethink what you are doing. This worker system dictates the game and I love it.
Most of what you will be doing is gathering crew and supplies at your village for raids to seize victory points and loads of rewards, although it should be said that while looting villagers may To be satisfied, the ultimate goal is to be satisfied. Boss, and that doesn’t always mean stealing everything, rape everything that moves and set fire to the rest, even if to be honest, that’s what you’re going to do, because why wouldn’t you? Yes, in the Assault you will need some basic items such as supplies and silver coins from the mechanic to pay for your crew.
Now, we’ve come to the Vikings, although it is represented by some rather thick Townsfolk cards. When visiting the Gatehouse, you can draw two new Townsfolk cards, each with a purpose in double life. The first method is used by sending workers to the Town Hall. You can discard any card in your hand to activate the specified effect, such as stealing cash from other players for you to draw more cards, or Receive supplies immediately.
But these cards also represent different Vikings that you can invade. To get your crew, you need to head to the barracks and pay the amount indicated on the card, then place it in front of you, adding a frenzied folk lofty to your small army.All Townsfolk cards have. The second ability, which will only be activated when they are part of the crew, includes victory points when attacking certain locations, able to jump back to your hand instead of dying, giving additional supplies when going to the shed. Colors and much more. Few heroes to bring aboard a ship with a ton of strength and great bonus abilities, even if you only have one crew at a time and the most hired Vikings. Five people at a time
In a siege, you simply push your workers into space if they meet the color requirements, which is a wonderfully racist sentence now that I think about it. You will also need to meet other requirements in terms of food and gold by throwing them into general distribution as Vikings need a lot of food to maintain those impressive bodies and gold so they can gamble. Inevitably Your crew must be the size required. Next, you need to calculate your total attack power by increasing the number shown on your crew card plus the armor you have, and some positions let you roll a dice or two as well.
