First game of the North Sea Trilogy!
Construct the Best Ships in the Village!
Raid and Plunder your way to victory!
As Viking shipwrights, players compete to construct the greatest fleet on the North Sea. Players must collect oak, wool, and iron, but also get craftsmen on board to help. As you would expect, the township is filled with interesting characters.
Drafting to Make Your Village!
Each turn the Start player will get 3 cards and choose one to keep and pass the rest. The next player does the same from the remaining cards and so on. Each player will end up with 3 cards at the end that they will be able to use for their village.
Gather Resources and Build Ships!
Constructing a Ship can take anywhere from 1 day to over a week to complete. To finish construction, players will need all the required Gold, Workers, Goods, and Craftsmen.
Gain the Most Victory Points to Win!
Players add up all their Victory Points: Constructed Ships + Buildings + Military bonus. The player with the highest total VPs is the winner and receives the honour and respect that comes with constructing the most glorious fleet on the North Sea!
How to Play
'On their turn, players may purchase Goods from the Main Supply. The purchase cost is always the same,
however, the return will vary. This is governed by the top-most card on the Main Draw Pile. To buy goods, players always pay 2 Gold and 2 Workers.'
Hire a Craftsman or Call on Townsfolk!
Craftsmen (red cards) are required when constructing Ships. Players may place up to 4 Craftsmen below their boards. There are 7 different Craftsmen. If a player holds a Townsfolk (grey card) in their hand, they must play or discard it immediately.
'Before constructing a Ship, players must first place the Ship card in 1 of their 2 Workshops. There is no cost
when placing a Ship in a Workshop. To finish construction, players will need all the required Gold, Workers, Goods, and Craftsmen.'
'If a player holds a Building in their hand, they may purchase it with Gold & Workers. This cost is shown on the
bottom of each Building. There are 7 different buildings. Players may only construct 1 of each unique Building type.'
