About this deal

The rulebook also includes additional scenarios players can choose to play that mix up the game play a bit with specific win conditions and rules. The theme, game play, and strategies are all factors in whether or not someone in the family will enjoy playing. I am not one of them despite regularly falling asleep to the British History Podcast (BHP) which covered this period for me about 3 months ago. Something like that to give movement options while also ensuring you have event cards at your disposal all game.

How to play 878: Vikings – Invasion of England The Sequence of Play reference sheet is very helpful. Your site is a much needed breath of fresh air, I absolutely love the spectrum of things you cover/review.Although the rules are simple there is enough in here, especially with 4 players, to keep even the most experienced of Grognards entertained. I am yet to tear into the expansion content and start adding the mini modules into the game, but the game itself doesn’t need them to be a really good game.

Being on the right side of that decision is where the best player (with wit and a small amount of luck) will find themselves.Incongruously the rule book states that it is the year 865 however there aren’t many people who could split such small hairs or understand the nuance between the years 865 and 878. The Battle mechanic used in 878: Vikings is really very simple, and simple is not a bad thing in this instance. The choosing faction is decided by which Viking faction has their cube drawn from the draw bag first. The real advantage you have is that the Vikings will most often invade an area where you did not place extra units. But instead of discarding it once played, it’s placed face up next to the board (or on the Treaty of Wedmore board).
