In the Name of Odin
In the Name of Odin is a strategic game for 2-5 Viking warriors. On their turn, players use Action Cards to construct new structures in their villages, gather their men, recruit famous Vikings, and buy longships – all to go on raids. Each raid comes with its own set of requirements, and a prize in Fame. At Game End, whoever has gathered the most Fame will become the new Jarl, the chosen of Odin - and the winner of the game.
In the Name of Odin plays fast, minimizes the downtime by limiting the immediate choices available during a given turn, and giving players full knowledge of what they will be able to make use of during their next activation. And although it is a game about the ruthless Norsemen, it does not introduce any direct, negative interaction.
