Viking Raiders is a 2-5 player card game in which players are Viking chiefs, jostling to build the biggest Navy, create the largest Clan and gain the most Loot.

On your turn, you draw 2 cards to see what your clan has been up to whilst you have been away ‘chiefing’. Have they focused on resources and mined stone or gold, collected wood, created new vikings, or built up the food supplies? Sometimes they have spent their time preparing actions for you by capturing a wandering Berserker or preparing for a raid (one of their favourite endeavours). Or maybe they have gained a favour from one of the Norse gods or goddesses?

Each turn you may use one action (for example go on a raid or use a favour from a God or Goddess) and buy one item from a central Market. You buy items using resources in your hand, and you can choose between ships for your Navy, buildings for your Clan and valuables for your Loot. Each item gives 1-3 Victory Points, and the first player to have an agreed number of Victory Points in each category wins the game.

There are also four rare Abilities that sometimes turn up in the Market. Oh, and watch out for Ragnarok…!

Compact and travel friendly, this gateway game is ideal for casual gamers and families with children aged 9 or above.
