Description

A Feast for Odin is a saga in the form of a board game. You are reliving the cultural achievements, mercantile expeditions, and pillages of those tribes we know as Viking today — a term that was used quite differently towards the end of the first millennium.

When the northerners went out for a raid, they used to say they headed out for a viking. Their Scandinavian ancestors, however, were much more than just pirates. They were explorers and founders of states. Leif Eriksson is said to be the first European in America, long before Columbus.
In what is known today as Normandy, the intruders were not called Vikings but Normans. One of them is the famous William the Conqueror who invaded England in 1066. He managed to do what the king of Norway failed to do only a few years prior: conquer the Throne of England. The reason why the people of these times became such strong seafarers is due to their unfortunate agricultural situation. Crop shortfalls caused great distress.

In this game, you will raid and explore new territories. You will also experience their day-to-day activities: collecting goods to achieve a financially secure position in society. In the end, the player whose possessions bear the greatest value will be declared the winner.

    A Feast for Odin is one of my favorites to put out on the table, especially for solo play. I will note, while I do like the trays that it comes with (extremely similar to GMT counter trays), I would highly recommend that if you have access to a 3D printer, whether via a makerspace or a friend, I would most definitely get a full insert made for this as it really helps speed up the setup and teardown time, which is really the only downer for this game as it has roughly a billion tokens and can take up some table space (pictured is just the setup for solo).

    As far as gameplay goes, it is your typical Uwe Rosenberg worker placement, feed your workers, resource collection game with the twist of using your resources as puzzle pieces to cover up your player board to gain extra resources and gain points in the style of Patchwork. The theme is awesome (who doesn’t love vikings) and the gameplay is easy to understand. The solo mode specifically is very neat cause it still gives you that feel of multiplayer where some spaces are taken up and unusable to you per turn, I only play this solo now, and its in my top 3 for that purpose. There is no automa, you are playing against your self to beat your high score, which may not be everyone’s favorite mode for solo, but it really gives you a chance to explore everything this game has to offer, which is a lot, and makes playing the game solo a very smooth and rich experience.

    All in all, if you liked any of Uwe’s other worker placement games like Agricola or Caverna, or just like worker placement as a mechanic in general, and are wanting to try something with a twist on that mechanic, and are looking for a strong, rich, thinky, and smooth solo experience to go with it, look no further than A Feast for Odin.
